The Biomutant Atomic Edition will come in at a whopping £350 when the game releases in May 2021.
You’ve seen Biomutant before, right? It was doing the rounds at the expos a few years ago and everyone was very excited, then things went quiet. That’s not necessarily a problem, of course, but you risk people forgetting about your game if you don’t keep up the hype assault.
Need a refresher? Per the press release:
Biomutant is an open world “kung fu fable” that’s “set in an imaginative post-apocalyptic universe,” whose “unique design lets players change their character’s abilities and appearance with powerful mutations, bionic prosthetics and weapons. Grow claws, sprout wings, or attach a robotic leg – each choice will impact the way your hero plays in real-time combat that blends melee martial arts and firearms.”
In short, then: Biomutant is somewhere between Breath of the Wild, Shenmue and Bugsnax. (Which actually sounds pretty great when you put it like that.)
Why are we talking about the game now? Because developer Experiment 101 and publisher THQ Nordic have today announced the Biomutant release date, and it’s May 25, 2021. (That’s too late to make our most anticipated games of 2021 list though, sorry.)
Biomutant will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. In addition to the expected digital and base retail editions, there will be two special editions, the Collector’s Edition – which will feature a figurine, fabric poster, soundtrack and special box – and the Atomic Edition, which will include a diorama, steelbook, t-shirt (in L or XL sizes) and oversized mousemat, in addition to the contents of the Collector’s Edition.
The Biomutant Collector’s Edition will carry an SRP of € 109.99 | $ 109.99 | £ 99.99 for PC and € 119.99 | $ 119.99 | £ 109.99 for consoles, while the Atomic Edition will cost a princely € 399.99 | $ 399.99 | £ 349.99.
