Biomutant unleashes its post-apocalyptic open world to the Nintendo Switch on May 14

Publisher THQ Nordic and developer Experiment 101 has announced that they are releasing open world RPG Biomutant to the Nintendo Switch on May 14. This follows a recent delay in which they initially reported that it would hit the Nintendo platform last November.

The release on Nintendo will include its DLC consisting of the DLC-only Mercenary class and soundtrack. When it released in 2021, the game recouped its development and marketing costs within one week. Since then, the RPG was received a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S release in September 2022.

A new trailer for its upcoming re-release was released that has all of its gameplay footage recorded from a Nintendo Switch console.

Finally, we have a release date! Just three years after saving the world on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation, the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic Wung-Fu fable open-world RPG, Biomutant (including its DLC), is set to make its debut on Nintendo Switch on May 14th, 2024.

Embark on an adventure with Biomutant's ever-evolving hero—a creature that has been likened to a raccoon, a red panda, and even a cat. Perhaps it is whatever players want to see in it. What truly sets Biomutant apart is its unique martial arts-style combat system, seamlessly blending melee, shooting, and mutant abilities for an immersive gaming experience.

Survival in Biomutant's vibrant yet perilous world demands mastery of these skills. Navigate through diverse challenges, choosing to either confront or ally with different tribes and encountering a myriad of creatures, some amicable, while others pose significant threats. Explore wild and mysterious regions, where remnants of a lost civilization are scattered, raising intriguing questions about their demise. What led to their downfall? Who were they? These questions linger, but the most pressing is: What fate awaits the current world? The power to shape its destiny lies in your paws; ultimately, you will determine whether the world thrives or succumbs.

Save the date - May 14th, 2024 - Biomutant is coming to Nintendo Switch, leveraging the Switch's unique gyro-controls and offering players a seamless open-world experience. To witness the game in action, check out the latest trailer, entirely recorded on Nintendo Switch.

BIOMUTANT is an open-world, post-apocalyptic Wung-Fu fable RPG, with unique martial art styled combat system allowing you to mix melee, shooting, and mutant ability action.

  • A NEW TAKE ON 3rd PERSON COMBAT - The martial arts style combat system allows you maximum freedom of movement and agility while mixing shooting, melee, and powers from your mutations. Learning new Wung-Fu combat forms through progression and learning from masters you’ll meet, will constantly add to your choices and make sure combat never gets old.
  • EVOLVE YOUR GAME-PLAY - You’ll be able to re-code your genetic structure to change the way you look and play. This will of course affect your attributes and in addition to this, exposure to bio-contamination in the world will lead to mutations like the Turtleform and Mucus Bubble, while exposure to radioactivity found in bunkers from the old world will affect your mind and unlock psi-mutations like telekinesis, levitation and more.
  • NEXT LEVEL OF CRAFTING - You are totally free when crafting weapons. Mix and match parts to create your own unique 1H or 2H slash and crush weapons. Revolvers, rifles and shotguns and add modifications like cork-screws and battery-powered chainsaw modules to bio-contaminated sludge vials adding to your combat arsenal. There are even characters you’ll meet that’ll craft cool stuff for you, like bionic wings, a jump-pack and even let you modify your Automaton - the scrap-toy sidekick!
  • GEAR UP FOR ADVENTURE - You are totally free when equipping your character. Not only when it comes to choosing weapons you created, but what type of gear you wear. Equip a gas-mask and an oxygen tank for exploring the Dead Zones, thermos-resistant clothes for venturing into cryonic areas or protective gear for taking on bio-contaminated creatures, the choice is up to you.
  • SURVIVE IN A VIBRANT OPEN WORLD - You are free to explore the world and what lies beneath its surface, by foot, mech, jet-ski, air-balloon or area unique mounts. Explore the dying wildland, the tunnels and bunker networks of the underworld, and find your way up the mountains or out in the archipelago. There are lots of discoveries to be made, mysteries to unravel, creatures to confront, and weird characters to meet in this vibrant and colorful world.
  • AN UNUSUAL STORY WITH AN UNUSUAL END - Your actions play a major part in the unfolding of a story where End is coming to the New World. A plague is ruining the land and the Tree-of-Life is bleeding death from its roots. The Tribes stand divided, in need of someone strong enough to unite them or bring them all down... You are guided through the world by a Storyteller that narrates every step of your journey, but it’s your actions and choices that’ll decide how your story of survival ends.
