THQ Nordic has released a new gameplay trailer for Biomutant, the long-awaited action RPG from developer Experiment 101.

The new trailer showcases what kind of combat players can expect from the upcoming title, as well as a look at other gameplay mechanics. This is the second gameplay trailer the studio has released which is only a fraction of the length of their 10-minute gameplay preview from last year. Take a look at the latest trailer below:

In the trailer, fans get a glimpse of the martial arts space mammal’s attack types from melee to long-range, gun-wielding combat. The new footage also shows off a range of different enemies that all - like our main protagonist - resemble a mix of earth animal and space creature. The trailer also features a scene in which it looks like players are in control of a Giga robot that smashes through anything in its path. Which is bound to be useful during your playthrough.

Biomutant has had a turbulent release schedule ever since it was first announced in 2017. After a few years' radio silence, it looked as though it was set to release sometime this year before securing a release window of May 2021, where it seems to be staying. This gameplay trailer also gave a very sneak peek at a pre-order exclusive class ‘mercenary’, but what that actually means for players we’ll have to wait until May to find out.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
