Biomutant Won’t Support 4K On PS5 At Launch
THQ Nordic’s open-world RPG Biomutant is set to release in just a few days, offering gamers a beautiful and massive world teeming with life and possibilities. Unfortunately, it appears that the experience offered by the developer will vary depending on platform, as it’s been revealed that Biomutant on PS5 won’t support 4K resolution at launch.
Biomutant developer THQ Nordic took to Twitter to showcase new footage of the game running on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X platforms. A disclaimer on the Tweet states that this is not a “native current gen experience,” which prompted a Twitter user to ask whether Biomutant will run at 4K or 1080p resolution on the PS5 at launch. THQ Nordic replied by revealing that the game won’t support 4K on PS5 at launch due to “technical reasons.”
Due to technical reasons, we deactivated native 4k on PS5 for the release version of the game.
Biomutant is currently running at native 1080p upscaled to 4k on PS5.

As for what these technical reasons could be, the developer doesn’t say. On the other hand, it’s been confirmed that Biomutant will run at native 4K on the Xbox Series X right from launch, so this issue with the PS5 may be something that will be cleared up after the title’s release. In the meantime, those looking to get the definitive experience right from the get-go may want to look into getting it for the Xbox Series X.
Biomutant is slated to release on May 25, 2021 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and PS5 & Xbox Series X through forward compatibility. True latest-gen versions of the game will be released in the future.
