Experiment 101 and THQ Nordic released unedited gameplay 4K footage for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X of Biomutant. Apparently, the Xbox Series X footage shows us Biomutant is running at Dynamic 4K resolution in 60 frames per second (FPS), while the PlayStation 5 (PS5) can only run the game on 1080P upscaled to 4K at 60 FPS at the moment.
The studio did add a note on the press release:
“With this build, the option for native 4k on PlayStation has been deactivated due to stability- and performance-related reasons. What you see here is 1080p @60fps upscaled to 4k @60fps. It will remain deactivated for the release version, too. It will not be a native current-gen experience. More information on that will follow soon, though.”
This means Biomutant is not yet optimized for next-gen consoles. A future patch will be released that would utilize both the Xbox Series X and PS5’s hardware.
For the meantime, watch this raw gameplay footage of Biomutant running on Xbox Series X:
Biomutant will launch on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on May 25.
