This is a bit of a weird one, but given what we know, we might just be getting an open-world action RPG out of THQ Nordic that blends Rocket Racoon with a post-apocalyptic Kung-Fu film. A German magazine seems to have leaked THQ Nordic's next big project, Biomutant, ahead of Gamescom next week.
While the game is far from being officially confirmed as of right now, the leaked image comes with a couple of screenshots showing what looks to be the game's furry protagonist who is obviously the Biomutant in question. A humanoid fox or raccoon-like creature holding a massive sword was featured in a magazine spread. The three screenshots below the banner image show the character swimming, fighting, and what looks like a flying creature.

THQ Nordic has said that it will be announcing two new games at Gamescom this week, one of which will be an entirely new IP, the other a well-known series. We should know if Biomutant is real soon enough.
It could always be an elaborate hoax?
If the advertisement is to be believed, Biomutant will be coming our way in early 2018 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
