Biomutant is open world action RPG with loot, in which you play a sort of violent raccoon that can alter its genetic material to gain super powers. Videogames!
The playable demo at the PC Gamer Weekender offered about 20 minutes of hacking set in some slightly dank, boxy interiors. Devil May Cry physics are at play, so when you shoot a gun or swing a weapon in midair gravity is so awed it lets you float there for half a second. If you’re on the ground the force of your upward shots can keep an enemy uncomfortably suspended. This makes it easy to fix bad guys in place while you combo them to death, stringing spinning dive attacks into uppercuts into John Woo torrents of gun fire.
Combat is quite exciting, but not as clean and beautifully fluid as the games that inspire it. However Biomutant’s strength, like its furry protagonist, lies in its hybrid nature. As you level up you discover new abilities that help you traverse the world and mess up enemies in amusing ways.
