Edit: Thank to Wario64 for heads up

Edit: "Early 2018" is floated as release window. PC, XBO, PS4. Game is also playable at Gamescom this week so I would expect some gameplay footage quite soon.

Edit: Official site is up, few new screenshots + announcing game will be at PAX too: http://biomutant.com

Edit:
You have full freedom when equipping your character. Not only when it comes to choosing weapons you created, but also what type of gear you wear. Equip a gasmask and an oxygen tank for exploring the Dead Zones, thermos-resistant clothes for venturing into cryonic areas or protective gear for taking on bio-contaminated creatures, the choice is up to you.

Unleash your creativity when crafting weapons. Mix and match parts to create your own unique single- or double-handed slash, crush and pierce melee weapons. Revolvers, rifles and shotguns and add modifications from cork-screws and battery-powered chainsaw modules to bio-contaminated sludge vials, that'll give edge to your combat arsenal. There are even characters you'll meet that'll craft cool stuff for you, like bionic wings, a jump-pack and even let you modify your Automaton – the scrap-toy sidekick!

The martial arts style combat system allows you maximum freedom of movement and agility while mixing shooting, melee and powers from your mutations. Acquiring new Wushu combat styles through progression, and learning from masters you'll meet, constantly adds to your choices and makes sure combat never gets old.

You'll be able to recode your genetic structure to change the way you look and play. This will of course affect your attributes and in addition to this, exposure to bio-contamination in the world will lead to physical mutations such as mantis-claws and barbed tails, while exposure to radioactivity found in bunkers from the old world will affect your mind and unlock psi-mutations including telekinesis, levitation and more.

You'll create your own adventure as you journey explore the open world and what lies beneath its surface, by foot, mech, jet-ski, air-balloon and more. Traverse the dying wildland, the tunnels and bunker networks of the underworld, and find your way up the mountains or out in the archipelago. There are lots of discoveries to be made, mysteries to unravel, creatures to confront and weird characters to meet in this vibrant and colorful world.

Your actions play a major part in the unfolding of a story where End is coming to the New World. A plague is ruining the land and the Tree-of-Life is bleeding death from its roots. The Tribes stand divided, in need of someone strong enough to unite them or bring them all down...

Although you are guided through the world by a Storyteller that narrates every step of your journey, it's your actions and choices that'll decide how your story of survival ends.

When he pulled out that sword Rules of Nature immediately started playing in my head.
Yes I'm in.
We got a release date yet?

I'm interested in some of the screenshots that have come out but man that was a really bad and uninteresting trailer.

Now what's the next step in your master plan?

Just a CG trailer but at least gives us a better idea of what to expect in terms of art style, gameplay, etc. Seems almost Devil May Cry like with the sword and guns combo and I like how it seems the characters are all animals with the huge badger dude.

The trailer is titled (from ex-Just Cause Devs)?

What is up with that emphasis on an announcement trailer.

I thought we would have got gameplay after there was gameplay shots on the leaked ad, kinda disappointed. Any chance we get anything more at Gamescom, at least the CGI confirmed to me I love the character if that is the sort of personality they want to give him.

I wish it was better looking, but hey, maybe it super fun.

Anyone else immediately think of Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy when they watched the trailer..? Not a criticism, just felt aesthetically really, really similar.

Ex-Avalanche is interesting. They know how to make a fun open-world.

Not getting my hopes up too much, doubt it will be GOTY material but the whole idea seems fun.

I mean, it's a racoon with a gun. So yeah, there's not much more to it.

Mad Max devs?

Well I liked Mad max and I liked the combat in that game, hopefully this one has it too, is very punchy and satisfying.
