In Biomutant, players take the role of a raccoon-like creature that must save the world. With a poisonous oil springing up from the ground, most the world is quickly infected and dying off. This also has spread to the Tree of Life, a giant tree that brings life to the whole world.

Players must go to each of the six roots of the Tree of Life and stop the oil and defeat each boss. Furthermore, the game will be tossing players a number of decisions that will affect the overall narrative storyline. Likewise, the choices you make will ultimately alter the world itself. Developers have stated that the entire world is open for players to explore with only sections blocked, forcing players to progress the narrative in order to gather the items required to access past unreachable areas.

What players may also enjoy about Biomutant is the fact that the game will feature branching storyline narratives which means that when players make decisions it will alter the storyline. Ultimately, how the game will play out is completely up to you. As it stands right now, Biomutant is still slated to release in 2019.

The Outer Worlds
  • Developer: Obsidian Entertainment
  • Publisher: Private Division
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Obsidian Entertainment is a well-known and beloved video game development studio after they have released countless iconic RPG titles. For instance, the developers were responsible for Fallout: New Vegas and during The Game Awards 2018 came the announcement of The Outer Worlds. This is a brand new experience which resembles a bit like their past Fallout: New Vegas work. Within the game players will be embarking on an adventure set in the distant future where mankind has colonized space. So far we know that players will be investigating megacorporations to find just how strong of a hold they have on life and the colonized worlds.

Just like with past RPG titles developed under Obsidian Entertainment, the gameplay narrative will present players with multiple answers and options. Depending on the options selected may result in various branching storylines. Unfortunately, we don’t have to many details regarding the game narrative and gameplay mechanics. However, as mentioned, this is an RPG adventure so players can still expect to see various customization options and a massive world to explore.


Mortal Kombat 11
  • Developer: NetherRealm Studios
  • Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
  • Release: April 23, 2019

Mortal Kombat is a staple to the fighting genre with so many titles flooding the market across generations of platforms. In a surprise reveal at The Game Awards 2018 we got our first announcement that developers over at NetherRealm Studios are working on the eleventh main installment to the Mortal Kombat franchise. We don’t know very much at all regarding this game other than what was shown off during the first reveal trailer.

Within the trailer we saw Scorpion and Raiden battling and it looks like there will be some time element at play when a female character was shown next to a reverse flowing hourglass. For those who pre-order the game, you will receive access to Shao Kahn as a bonus character but we imagine that the developers have character packs readily available throughout the game’s launch serving as additional past Mortal Kombat characters to other franchise crossovers much like their previous release, Mortal Kombat X.
