THQ Nordic Announces Open World Action RPG Biomutant

THQ Nordic and new studio Experiment 101 have announced Biomutant, a new title that tries to combine Wushu martial arts with craftable augmentations in an open world RPG.

Reading a sentence like that, I immediately think two things: I sounds awesome, and I greatly fear it will collapse under the weight of it's own ambition. We've all seen projects which promise an impressive list of trendy features, but fail to deliver a serviceable game in the end. Combine that with a new studio and a publisher with a spotty (at best) track record, and you have lots of reason to be skeptical.

But a cool cinematic trailer combined with some interesting screens on the official website plus a game description that sounds right up my alley, and I can't help but be optimistic.

Biomutant is slated for a 2018 release on XB1, PS4 & PC.

Since the only Wushu games I know of are that weird Legend of Wulin Heroes and Jade Empire, I'm cautiously optimistic.
