The role-playing action Biomutant took at once the two first lines in Charter Steam over the past week. At the same time, pre-orders brought more revenues than sales after release. In the top three thanks to the discount, a pirate action of Sea of Thieves returned.
Biomutant (the only novelty TOP-10) set a record for the maximum number of simultaneous players among Thq Nordic projects in Steam. On May 26, the peak online exceeded 55 thousand users. However, interest in the game quickly decreases: in the last 24th, the indicator was a little more than 18 thousand.
Many were disappointed with the game. The Valve store action-RPG has a rating of 65% (total number of reviews – almost 6.5 thousand), and the middle score of the press on Metacritic is equal to 62-68 out of 100 possible. Most noted substantially flawed role mechanics and a combat system, a single gameplay, a weak plot, technical problems and an unjustifiably high price ($ 60 or 3419 rubles in Steam). At the same time, Biomutant managed to charm part of the gamers in the world and visual style. In reviews from 3DNews, it received 4.5 out of 10 points.
