Not sure if I'm allowed to link directly to scans/photos from magazines, but in the recent German GamesMarkt magazine there is an ad for a THQ Nordic-developed Open-World Action-RPG called Biomutant, coming Early 2018 for PS4/X1/PC. Check this guy's twitter: https://twitter.com/Tino_Hahn/

The protagonist is a racoon(?) with a sword who judging from the tagline knows kung fu!

Tagline says: "The post-apocalyptic kung fu fable"

Update on developer:
Experiment 101, their logo is up there before the THQ one

Biomutant.

This is 90's radical shit, right there.

EDIT: Ok, I dig the protag's design.

It's like fantasy Rocket Raccoon.

Well, you can't deny that's an... unusual premise.

Who's developing it? i'm getting Gothic/Risen vibes from the screens, but I know Piranha Bytes is busy with ELEX.

Looks like the Redwall version of Guts. I'll take it. Does he have a fake paw that is also a cannon?

Was thinking the same, haha.

Looking forward to a trailer for this. Sounds great!

Edit: No Keanu Reeves "I know kung-fu" gif yet?

Holy shit, I love the hero design, it's Rocket Raccoon x Guts from Berserk. Really curious about the gameplay!
