THQ Nordic has a new trailer up for their upcoming action RPG Biomutant. As the name suggests, the gameplay teaser trailer offers a glimpse of various mechanics.
Early on, we get to see the protagonist board a ship floating over the land. Next, the video shows another aerial vehicle in the form of a glider. It then moves on to show off climbing mechanics. First we see the player character use an arrow with a rope to reach a distant cliff, and then we see them leap from foothold to foothold. Later in the video, the furry critter uses a grappling hook to ascend to the top of a structure. There are scenes involving water as well. First we see an idle animation of the hero trying to warm up in the rain. Next, they outrun a rising tide. They also move across a frozen lake and struggle to wade through a chest-high stream. Finally, we also get a look at a giant mechanical cephalopod swimming in the deep.
The trailer also shows some of the combat systems in action. Early on in the video, the protagonist pilots a mechanical hand to shoot and lunge at a small band of enemies. Closer to the end, we see them knocking enemies into the air and slicing them up. The trailer also shows off some unique skills and an assortment of enemies big and small. In perhaps the most eye-catching portion of the video, the hero unleashes a barrage of bullets while using mushrooms to bounce high into the air before finally reeling them in for close quarters combat.
