Biomutant: players halved on Steam in a couple of days, is that a flash in the pan?


Biomutant was undoubtedly one of the surprises of this beginning of 2021. Thanks to the mix between The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon: Zero Dawn, THQ Nordic's game had attracted the attention of thousands of fans, so much so that it be THQ Nordic's best-launching game ever. Too bad that after a couple of days the PC gamers have halved, showing a worrying trend for the game.

Recall that Biomutant was created by the small team of Experiment 101, who probably wanted to create a product that is a a little too ambitious. For this reason, the reviews of Biomutant have been mixed, something that, together with the various problems, may have turned some people away. Who, despite the promise to fix the game, have decided to abandon the game.

At launch, in fact, 55 thousand people simultaneously threw themselves on Biomutant, placing the game in thirteenth position among the most played on Steam. This number, however, dropped to around 20,000 after two days and to 13,000 by the time we write the news.

Contemporary Biomutant Players Considering that it takes around 20 hours to complete the game, it's hard to think that 50% of players spent so many hours in front of Biomutant to complete it as quickly as possible, something that would indicate a worrying escape.
