Biomutant is Vibrant, Unique, and a Hell of a Lot of Fun - OnlySP

THQ Nordic had a bevy of games available to play on the show floor at this year’s E3. While some attendees eagerly lined up to play Darksiders Genesis (as our own Michael Cripe did), others sought to finally get their hands on Experiment 101’s highly-unique Biomutant for a hands-on, 30-minute demo. Check out OnlySP's thoughts here.

Why is this the first article about biomutant?! I thought it was a no show lol!

I didn't even realize THQ was there. This is sorta why E3 sucks now. Coverage used to be so comprehensive, now it's all about 4 games and CGI trailers.

I'm playing this when I get a chance.

Was this at E3? I don’t mean the pressers was it any of the booths?

AK911799d ago

Was it playable did it look/play rough? Sorry to be a pain but living in Australia I can’t exactly be at the booths :(

MikeCripe1799d ago

It was playable at the THQ booth! Our writer Dimitric (author of the above article) got to play the game for 30 minutes or so. He had never heard of it before and was shocked by what he played. He said he loved just about every second of it.

Thanks man really appreciate it.

Strangeface1799d ago

It’s indeed odd that this is the first time we’ve heard anything of this game with regard to E3. Baffling, actually.

-Foxtrot1799d ago

With how little press or build up this game is getting despite looking pretty good so far makes me think it's going to be one of those games that can go either way

It'll be amazing, an underrated gem which will get lost with all the other big hitters

or

It'll be terrible, a massive disappointment which fails to deliver on what was promised.

Ambitious dream but sorry you don't make good RPGs. Just online co-op shooters.

Not yet, but they can grow. Sounds like that's the plan. They have a new CEO this week as well. I can see they pushing helldivers 2 to other consoles, Mac and even high end mobile devices. The game could become a global force and sony can rack up their MAUs.

Eonjay7h ago(Edited 7h ago)

Sure for Helldivers. Surprised Sony doesn't put Helldivers 1 on mobile.... but in reality, I think Arrowhead is talking about creating original IPs that they own. What I question is how they will do this (while remaining multiplatform) without expanding. For HD2, Sony contributed a lot. If they do this by themselves, they are going to hire more people (which isn't a bad thing as long as its sustainable). I love that they are trying to 'stay small' but even when looking at HD2, you get the feeling that they were woefully underprepared to deal with the success they had. Even to today, it takes too long to get bugs addressed.

Another story said that players had stopped playing because of lack of new content. We have know about the new factions since launch but one doubts that they have the internal resources to get new content added at the pace they need to. If they are looking for the kind of success they claim, they need to invest in the resources that will allow them to attract and keep as many players as possible.

Ambitious hopefully y'all can achieve it

They could start by putting any kind of story into their games and ditching the BS of "but we have a game master to direct your irrelevant actions".

Being the new Blizzard in neither a compliment or a good thing.

thorstein6h ago

When the Blizzard symbol appeared on a title, it used to mean quality. Starcraft, Diablo, Warcraft...I think that's what they're referring to.

Yeah I remember those days as well.

Not if those games are going to be GaaS.
