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.
