New gameplay out of Gamescom. Sadly, the person holding the controller is incompetent as is prevalent in most of these videos. The most interesting aspect to me was how your character's appearance changes based on how you change your stats, in both physical appearance and the clothing you wear.

Looks good I like how the perspective is low to the ground different size enemies I'm sure the game picks up later on.

the game definitely is unique looking...would be nice if there were different animals you could choose to play as but I think everyone is forced to play as this Rocket Racoon character

Welp, back to waiting.

This is the studio's first game so I understand them wanting to get it right. It's good to know that THQ is being accommodating in giving them the time they need. Let's hope there is nothing bad happening in the background that they're not telling us about.

Full gameplay trailer without the interview. I'm glad they have taken the time to get this game polished because it is looking a lot better now than it did even just a year ago.

Was hoping the game would take a turn in the art direction and not look like Fortnite. The original trailer looked so awesome.

It looks really dated graphically but I guess that makes sense given how long this has been in development. The world does intrigue me, though.

good to finally get a release date...now if only Elden Ring, Far Cry 6 and Dying Light 2 would do the same :D

BioMutant developers went silent for so long so they could fix bugs without crunching

studio boss Stefan Ljungqvist told IGN that there were a lot of bugs to fix, and the studio was determined to avoid crunch while doing it..."It’s been a huge amount of work for QA, because it's not easy in an open-world game to find [bugs]," he said. "And then once they've been found, we have to fix them, and that's put some additional challenge on us, being a small team."

He credited publisher THQ Nordic for not pushing the studio to hit an earlier release date, and although he acknowledged that members of the team might have to work more hours to support the game after release, crunching at the studio is "not the constant thing," he said. "It will kill you."...

Kept it quiet instead of publicizing a lot. I don't think that would have worked with such a high profile game as Cyberpunk. THQ are going to have to kick in some marketing to remind people of this game now, though. I respect both the developer for recognizing they needed extra time and the publisher for giving it to them. Hopefully the game turns out really good because of it.

Old footage from this Summer the Bosses all look original the perspective is faked and played around with
I mean the stuff you fight looks like Disney animations. Squish and Squash what they used to teach for emulating movement.

This is the only announced game I'm looking forward to actually sure there are others but this one is different.

I gotta wonder if it isn't going to feel like a 2017 title in a 2021 world. I also wonder if that's a bad thing looking at the largely broken and/or lack luster releases of the last year.

I'm really skeptical of all the games of last year and this but majority of this game was made pre pandemic.

New IP can take 5 years or longer to develop, so you would have to just about say that of every game that isn't copypasta.

I think this game looks incredible. I just hope that the gameplay lives up to the video trailers. At this point there aren't many games coming out this year, so I'm 99% sure I'll buy it anyway.

Well it was supposed to be out in 2019.

Honestly, if it is a 2017/19 title I don't hold it against it, lots of good games around that time, more so than 2020/21 so far.

game looks interesting...definitely something unique which is always a good thing...hopefully the gameplay can be sustained throughout and won't get old quick...let's hope it will actually hit its May 25th date...Far Cry 6 is the other big game expected around that timeframe

I need this game to be good.
Small team given time to make the game they wanted from a large publisher with trailers showing what looks like a lot of love that went into crafting the world gives me high hopes.

multiple delays don't ensure a bug free game at launch- Cyberpunk can attest to that...that being said I'm hoping Biomutant delivers

I'm starting to get really excited for this game. I just like the aesthetic they have going. I really, really hope it isn't sloppy.
