5 games to get you hyped for BIOMUTANT

Great games to keep you entertained
While putting together this idea and the subsequent list, Stefan Ljungqvist - Art & Creative Director for BIOMUTANT - kindly voiced a video which spoke of games which have been compared this new title.
He expressed his own pitch, saying it’s an "Open-world, post-apocalyptic, Kung-fu fable” with animals. Of course, until we’ve actually played it, it will be tough to know what to play to stoke the flames of excitement, but using his suggestions, we’ll give it a go!
So, here are five games similar to BIOMUTANT to get you hyped for release.
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Will every open world title which is animated with cartoon-esque visuals always be compared to Breath of the Wild? Quite likely. It has become the eponymous title to look to when developing such a game. Why? Because Nintendo crafted it so well; the sweeping vistas, the enemy hot-spots, the mixing of playful mechanics with those which put your hero at risk. And if you want this type of experience, then you might as well play one of the best. Even if it’s not on PC.
Ratchet and Clank
BIOMUTANT has plenty of bold and colourful visuals and a little bit of tongue in cheek humour thrown in. But it also features a fair bit of bounding around the environment looking for secrets and loot.
So where better to perfect your movement skills than Ratchet and Clank? We can see why some have made the connection between the two games, as the gameplay of BIOMUTANT features that close camera behind an animal character who utilises movement skills.
Devil May Cry 5
One of the more striking aspects of BIOMUTANT is the combat. It’s flashy, over the top and full of combos.
The brawling style is hard to get right, and only a few games really nail that feeling of being a master of weapons and movement. Devil May Cry 5 is one such game, and it has plenty of sequels to sink your teeth into.
While the series is reliant on combat above other mechanics, such as platforming, it’ll certainly give your reactions and hands a workout ahead of BIOMUTANT's release.
Sorry, no cute anthropomorphic animals in this one. Plenty of apocalypse, though.
We hope that you already know the Fallout universe by now, but if you've been living in a bomb shelter then let's recap. Nuclear bombs have decimated much of society, creating mutants, turning people into greedy megalomaniacs, and poisoning the environment.
Mutant Year Zero
Finally, we get to a game which marries post-apocalypse with those anthropomorphic animals. Different type of game though, because this is a tactical RPG, but it has similar vibes on the surface.
Who doesn’t love talking animals wielding oversized weapons? Mutant Year Zero doesn’t have an overly cutesy aesthetic though, it’s bleak, dangerous and leans into the gritty aspect of a run-down world.
If you want to play as an angry duck hunting humans, this might be your jam.
