THQ Nordic has announced that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S and versions of Biomutant will be out on September 6th.

The next-gen versions will be free to anyone that had purchased the original. And they will add 4K resolution, HDR support, and frame rate boosted “up to 60fps.”

The new versions will feature three different graphical modes: Quality, Quality Unleashed, and Performance. On PS5, there will be DualSense features and Activity Cards. (The latter would be very useful in a game like Biomutant; open-world games benefit from the feature quite a bit.)

The game launched back in 2021, and it was an intriguing thing. It played off some of the ideas in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But it also had had some pretty repetitive combat, and it grew tiring before its story was done. Despite that, though, it had a compelling weirdness to it.

In VideoGamer’s review of the game, I said:

“We need more of this strangeness in our AAA open worlds, and, if the DNA of Biomutant sparks a re-evolution of some of the genre’s dull spots, perhaps we can forgive the dull spots present here. The story? KLICK! The combat? DING! The world? KAAA-POW!”
