Biomutant ‘Combat’ trailer, pre-order bonus DLC class ‘Mercenary’ announced

(Mercenary class also available to purchase post-launch.)


Publisher THQ Nordic and developer Experiment 101 have released a new trailer for Bimoutant, as well as announced the launch of digital pre-orders.

Users who pre-order Biomutant will receive the Mercenary class downloadable content. Here are the details, via THQ Nordic:

Pre-Order Bonus: The Mercenary

The Mercenary offers a unique combination of perks and is playable from the start through this downloadable content only. The Mercenary has dual-wield as a starting ability and is geared up with a classic Katana and the shorter Wakizashi blades to explain it in real-world terms. Simply put, it’ll let you experience the world of Biomutant as classic samurai-looking warrior from the very beginning.

Who gets the Merc Class as a preorder incentive?

The Mercenary class will be included in all digital preorders, as well as all physical Super SKUs of Biomutant (no matter if it is a pre-order or not). Inside there will be a little leaflet with the access codes on it. Pre-orders for the physical standard edition will not get the Mercenary.

Will it be exclusive or is there a difference for PC and consoles in terms of digital preorder?

No, they are basically the same; the only item that will be exclusive to the console will be a PlayStation 4 theme of Biomutant.

Will I be able to buy the Mercenary after release?

Yes, we will offer it also as downloadable content post-release. The pre-order incentive gives you get a slightly better deal if you preorder (base game plus “free” Mercenary downloadable content) versus buying the game on release day, and then buying the Mercenary class on top of that.

Biomutant is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, GOG, the Epic Games Store, and Origin on May 25.
