THQ Nordic and Experiment 101 released a new trailer for Biomutant today, highlighting the different weapons and techniques that can be used in combat. However, it also revealed a class that could be obtained on pre-ordering – The Mercenary. In a press release, the developer provided more details on the class, which can be purchased separately after the game’s launch.
The Mercenary has the ability to dual-wield and starts with a katana and wakizashi. It can be played from the very beginning, though more information on the “unique combination of perks” has yet to be provided. The class is available with digital pre-orders and physical special editions like the Collector’s Edition and Atomic Edition.
The incentive is meant to provide a “slightly better deal” for those who pre-order the game as opposed to purchasing it and then the Mercenary class later. When the Mercenary class can be purchased separately post-launch has yet to be revealed. Biomutant is currently slated to release for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on May 25th. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
