Where Are The Adolescent Abnormal Aikidōka Amphibians?
Biomutant has arrived after a long lead up and if you are still unsure as to whether you want to pick it up or not then Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN’s review may help you decide one way or another. It takes place in yet another post-apocalyptic world, in this one mutated intelligent animals are the dominant race thanks to the power of Wung Fu and their ability to scrounge random scraps and craft them into a variety of items.
Your character’s appearance will reflect your choices of attributes, a high strength means you will have a bulky critter while high intellect gives you a swelled head. There are also a wide variety of mutations, combat specialties and classes to chose from; not to mention a handful of different critter types to chose from. The combat is a mix of straight hack and slash with combos, as well as ranged weapons you can swap to instantly to engage enemies at range.
You will be able to play Biomutant without a new GPU, testing with a GTX 970 proved you can expect decent performance with medium quality settings at 1080p. If you are looking for better quality at higher resolutions you should be able to max everything out with an RTX 2070 Super or Radeon RX 5700 XT. RPS offers insight into the various graphics settings here if you are curious.
How you get on with it is by scampering around the world, gettin' in fights. This world is very beautiful, and separated into a few different biomes: rocky bits, beachy places, swampy swamps. It's punctuated by towns built by the weird little mammals, and the wreckage of the old human world.
