Biomutant has already tired

There is no doubt that Biomutant is generally appealing to players, although it has not fully convinced critics. The launch was very positive for the title of Experiment 101, finding great success especially on Steam. In the last few hours, however, the developers have made it known that an update is also coming that will solve many of the problems reported by critics and users, demonstrating a great listening to the feedback. However, it seems that this success is not going to last.

As also explained by many newspapers, Biomutant has suffered from the many years of development and the overly pretentious ambitions of Experiment 101 and THQ Nordic. GitHyp highlights how Biomutant was able to reach as many as 55,000 players connected simultaneously on Steam, bringing the work to the thirteenth place of the most played titles on the platform. However, although many users have appreciated the scenarios, the unique design choices and the way Biomutant manages to differentiate itself, it seems that the attention didn't last long.

Indeed, after only two days the player count has more than halved, dropping 55% on Steam. This is a very difficult situation, as this usually happens after two or three weeks of release on Valve's platform. This figure could therefore represent a premature decline for Biomutant although, on the other hand, seeing the title of THQ Nordic and Experiment 101 in the Steam top 10 immediately makes the success clear.

Let's talk about a data that can mean many things: what is certain is that Biomutant is very much liked by those who have played it and the data only serves to better understand some user trends on Steam. We will see how the situation will evolve, but until then we advise you to stay connected on our pages, so as not to miss any news. Do you like Biomutant or have you already put it aside?

First Biomutant patch will tackle dialogue problems alongside combat

The developers at Experiment101 have announced they're working on an update for Biomutant, naturally, that they 'hope to get into players' hands soon.' The update will include work on some of the community's most persistent bugbears, like 'the pacing of dialogues, narrator settings, difficulty settings, video settings like depth of field and motion blur, loot and enemy tuning as well as sound and combat.'

Weird dialogue pacing, as well as the persistent and constant narration, have been key notes from many players. Though you can turn down the constant chatter from the narrator, you can't turn it off.

Key for some people, me included, is a promise to change video settings like depth of field and motion blur. Some people don't like those. I do not like them. For now, you can go and find some mods to change those—they're already out there.

Reviewer James Davenport found Biomutant to have a charming world, but lackluster gameplay, in our review. 'Biomutant feels like it's going to be much more,' he said, 'but in practice it's an endless stream of new ideas that go nowhere and beautiful, toxic landscapes with little to offer except an excuse to use photo mode.'

Nonetheless, James did give out some hot tips for making the most of Biomutant.
