In addition to the regular version of the game, there are two different special versions of Biomutant for those really looking to drop some cash. The first is simply called the Collector’s Edition, and it includes a figurine of the player character, the soundtrack and some official artwork, costing around $120. The second special version is the Atomic Edition, including a massive diorama, steelbook, t-shirt, mouse pad and artwork for an extremely hefty $400.

When is the Biomutant release date ?

Originally revealed years ago, Biomutant still does not have a release date, or even a release window. An update in 2020 from the studio was posted to Twitter, saying that “We will reveal the release date as soon as everyone at our studio feels confident about hitting that date and that the game is ready for it.”
