Biomutant Update Fixes More Wrongs, Doubles Level Cap

THQ Nordic and Experiment 101’s RPG Biomutant has another update available.

This time around, the update [1.5] fixes a whole-host of various issues and complaints.

It also doubles the game’s level cap, from 50 up to 100! Here is a run-down of some of the updates 1.5 implements;

“PC Specific” Issues

  • New “Field of View Type” setting added. Allows to choose between horizontal and vertical FOV
  • Fixed a crash when temporarily losing contact with the GPU

Progression

  • Level cap increased from 50 to 100

Items & Loot

  • More “superb” loot variations
  • Higher tier relic and legendary weapon parts added – will drop from Level 50 onwards
  • Loot generation updated to provide more variation
  • Added “scrap action” to loot screen
  • Added a setting to hide or show worn-head items

Settings

  • New visual setting added; “HUD > Mode”. Allows the option to choose between “ALWAYS SHOW” or “DYNAMIC” HUD. Dynamic option hides the persistent UI elements shortly after leaving combat

Dialogue & Narrator

  • Fixed issues where Conscience’s voice(s) was disabled when using the setting “DIALOGUES > Narrator”
  • Changed frequency of Narrator’s line, “Just a few moves left… make them count”

  • Using the dodge function can now cancel some attack animations
  • Smaller enemies can now throw rocks at mounted player
  • Mounted player can now be knocked off when hit
  • The player’s mount can now flee during combat

Note; Experiment 101 has implemented a lot more fixes than what is listed here. It’s great to see that Experiment 101 is quickly implementing these updates.
