BiomutantThe release date for May is approaching, and publisher THQ Nordic has released a brand new trailer showing the game’s lively worlds and kung-fu inspired action! The trailer was also accompanied by information about the game’s pre-order incentive: those who pre-order the digital release or collector’s edition will have access to the Mercenary class, which apparently has “a unique combination of benefits.” This class will eventually be available to all players as DLC, but those who want it for free must pre-order one of these versions. Unfortunately, standard physical release is not included in the promotion.
The game’s latest trailer can be found in Tweet embedded below.

The game’s pre – order bonus was met with some hesitation from players looking forward Biomutant. One commenter noted that the controversy surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 had made them hesitate to pre-order future games, to which THQ Nordic replied was “understandable.” Other comments expressed disappointment that one of the game’s classes would essentially be locked behind a “payment wall”, especially since the regular physical release is not included in the promotion. It’s unfortunate, but pre-order bonuses have become an industry standard, and it looks like developers and publishers will continue to lean on them as long as players are willing to put money forward before release.
The digital version of Biomutant will sell for $ 59.99, while the collector’s edition will sell for $ 119.99. The collector’s edition comes with the game, in addition to a number of extras, including a figure, A1 artwork on fabric and the soundtrack. There is also a $ 399 Atomic edition that includes these elements, but swaps the character for a diorama. It also includes a t-shirt, a SteelBook and a large mouse. There is no word on whether the Atomic version will also include a pre-order incentive, but hopefully it will, given the price tag of the packages!
Biomutant is set to release on May 25 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game here.
