Biomutant – An Open World RPG
“BIOMUTANT” has just announced its official release date, and while some players were hoping to get started with the game right away, it appears as though there may be an issue getting started, as the setup itself requires much help. The new “mutant” -machinery is not yet complete, so players might need to wait for the “BIOMUTANT” update that will be coming soon to be able to start playing. In addition, this update will likely make the game more challenging, which will be fun to experience. Hopefully, this will all be a positive experience.
The combat in the trailer looked extremely intense, as well as being incredibly difficult, however, the real gameplay doesn’t seem to live up to the excitement of the trailers. Some areas are very simplistic, while other areas are more challenging, requiring some thought and strategy to get through. What I’m hoping for is that with this combat system, that everyone who picks it up will be able to level up quickly. The combat feels like a true blend of fighting styles from other MMOs such as EverQuest, and Taekwondo.
The story is very interesting and follows a group of teenagers who find themselves in a strange and dangerous place. The starting area has a variety of different combat scenes, including a chase scene involving two teens. The scenes progress gradually, taking players into the larger confines of the facility. I found it to be quite impressive how the immersions took me into the environment. The impressive breadth of gameplay that Biomutant offers also helps in building the impressive breadth of content.
Biomutant looks to be in the early stages of development, having been in pre-alpha since 2021. This game certainly seems to have an advantage over its competitors; titles such as Planetfall and EVE Online, which have been in production for several years now. This means that the scope and depth of gameplay offered by Bioident, are much greater than competitors. It also means that the features set out by the developers are clearly far more complex. This is why Bioident is positioned to succeed; it’s clearly one of the most ambitious titles on the market, offering an impressive gameplay experience and a wide gameplay scope.
Unlike many games that allow you to download the ‘base’ game and then download the ‘add-on’ content, you won’t be able to install Biomutant right away. Instead, you’ll be prompted to purchase the ‘space’ necessary for the software to run. Biomutant requires around 300 MB of space. Luckily the amount of space required is worth the price of the program, as it will allow you to play up to four players at once (although only one player at a time can actually use the bio mutants). This means that the competition for playing a multiplayer game on Biomutant is relatively high – so much so that you shouldn’t feel like you’re missing out by not purchasing the dll directly from the Biomutant website.
The Biomutant game itself is very impressive. It uses a procedural generation system to create a ‘world’ that players enter when they begin playing. What makes the game so interesting is that each of the players will be in a different environment, with different challenges: collecting food and fuel to help your character development, building shelters and sending out bio mutants, researching new technologies, and fighting off swarms of alien creatures. The combat is quite straightforward and is generally just an attempt to defend your base against waves of increasingly larger aliens. The real challenge comes from Biomutant’s ability to produce a huge number of ‘biomass that serves as food for the alien creatures – each of which has specific weaknesses that can prove critical to winning the game.
Biomutant is still in its early stages of development, with no concrete plans to release the game during the end of 2021. A release date is likely to be announced at a later date, however, with more focus being put on improving the game’s core features rather than spending too much time on its aesthetic design. For now though, if you’re interested in playing Biomutant then you can grab a copy of the beta from a number of reputable websites online. While these releases won’t have any real bearing on the final release of the game, they will give you a good idea of what the game has in store for you. You’ll also have a pretty good idea of how long the game will last.
In a game that promises an impressive breadth of play and an equally impressive breadth of technology, Biomutant is a fascinating alternative to classic role-playing titles. By taking a look at the way in which the game utilizes a procedural programming engine to generate its content, it’s easy to see why Biomutant looks set to become a truly memorable title for 2021. It looks like it may well make use of some cutting-edge procedural generation techniques as well, which would be an extremely welcome addition to any title. With its exciting procedural generation, coupled with an interesting story, top-notch visual design, and well-thought-out gameplay, Biomutant is one game that any RPG fan should look out for.
