A brief new Biomutant gameplay teaser offers more glimpses of the possibilities presented by the game’s character creation tools. The new footage also introduces enemies, including one that looks like a scarier Sully from Monsters Inc., we haven’t seen in previous Biomutant media.

Biomutant shocked Gamescom and PAX West 2017 attendees, with eye-catching visuals and exciting gameplay, and quickly rose from the ocean of largely unknown games in early development to become one of the most anticipated releases of 2018. But we still don’t have much in the way of hard data about the game. The new footage, featuring gameplay captured during PC Gamer Weekender 2018, offers new looks at Biomutant ’s protagonist and the enemies we’ll encounter during his adventure. An early segment, showing the diminutive protagonist running through a valley as it fills with water, suggests players will have some ability to alter the environment. The video also teases mutations we haven’t seen more, including the ability to run on water and generate a force field. And there’s a mech suit for some reason?

If there’s one thing the new teaser makes clear, it’s that we still don’t really know what to expect from the Swedish development team, Experiment 101, THQ Nordic acquired last year. Our first glimpse of Biomutant suggested the project would be your standard character action game with deeper customization than we typically see from the genre. But the mech-versus-monster action teased at the end of this week’s trailer suggests there could be more to Biomutant than learning which mutation is most effective against each enemy. It could always be a one-off scenario. But the other modes of transportation, from hot air balloons to wingsuits, shown in the new teaser suggest Experiment 101 has ambitious plans for the project.

For a closer look at Biomutant , check out footage from the game’s PAX West 2017 demo (via PlayStation Access). Then head down to the comments and let us know if you’re excited about the project and what you’re hoping to see when Biomutant hits PC and consoles.

Biomutant is in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
