Biomutant Pre-orders Now Open; New Combat Trailer
THQ Nordic has opened pre-orders for 'open-world, post-apocalyptic Kung-Fu fable RPG' Biomutant for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, GOG, Epic, Origin). The game is set to release on May 25. Pre-orders of retail editions can also be made on the official website, and you can find details of Collector's Editions available in our previous update.
Alongside, THQ Nordic has released a new combat trailer for the game, highlighting many of the abilities available. A pre-order bonus is also available for digital and collector's editions — a mercenary class. We've included the trailer and pre-order details from THQ Nordic below.
Pre-order Bonus: The Mercenary
The Mercenary offers a unique combination of perks and is playable from the start through this DLC only. The Mercenary has dual-wield as a starting ability and is geared up with a classic Katana and the shorter Wakizashi blades to explain it in real-world terms. Simply put, it'll let you experience the world of Biomutant as classic samurai-looking warrior from the very beginning.
Who gets the Merc Class as a preorder incentive?
The Merc class will be included in all digital preorders, as well as all physical Super SKUs of Biomutant (no matter if it is a preorder or not); inside there will be a little leaflet with the access codes on it. Preorders for the physical Standard Edition will not get the Mercenary.
Will it be exclusive or is there a difference for PC and consoles in terms of digital preorder?
No, they are basically the same; the only item that will be exclusive to the console will be a PS4 theme of Biomutant.
Will I be able to buy the Merc after release?
Yes, we will offer it also as a DLC post-release; the preorder incentive gives you get a slightly better deal if you preorder (base game plus "free" merc DLC) versus buying the game on release day, and then buying the Merc Class on top of that.
