THQ Nordic released gameplay footage of Biomutant running on PS5 today, and the news isn’t good for folks who were hoping to play Biomutant on PS5 in 4K. The footage starts with a disclaimer, which is always a good sign: “The footage you are about to see has been captured on a retail PS5. With this build, the option for native 4K on PlayStation has been deactivated due to stability- and performance-related reasons. What you see here is 1080p @60fps upscaled to 4K @60fps. It will remain deactivated for the release version, too. It will not be a native current gen experience. More information on that will follow soon, though.”

The news is disappointing, but it does makes sense. Biomutant is not a native PS5 game; it’s a PS4 title running through backwards compatibility. Folks had hoped – and perhaps expected – that the game would see improvements to take advantage of the PS5’s superior hardware as games like Days Gone and God of War did. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be possible.

What’s worse for PS5 players is that the Xbox Series X will run at native 4K at 60 frames-per-second. It should be noted that this doesn’t mean that the game will never support 4K and 60 FPS on PS5. The game could always get a patch that adds 4K support in the future. We’ll just have to wait and see. Either way, you have to respect THQ Nordic’s honesty.
