After installing?Biomutant, PS5 players should make sure that the game is closed and?navigate to their console’s home menu. From this screen, fans should highlight the?Biomutant?icon, press the Options button on their controllers, and select Manage Game Content. This will take players to a screen that has an entry for?Biomutant?Mercenary Class DLC listed under Add-Ons, and pressing the down arrow to the right of that entry will install the class and make it available in-game.
While it is very likely that?Biomutant?players on PS4 will ultimately be able to download the Mercenary Class DLC through the PSN Store on their consoles, that does not appear to be the case currently. However, there is indication that?fans can unlock the class by accessing the PlayStation App on a mobile device, locating?Biomutant?within their Libraries, and selecting Download to Console. Players that are eager to get started may thus want to give this approach a try, though an official fix for the issue should be forthcoming.
For those Xbox players that are trying to unlock the Mercenary class, the process begins by searching for?Biomutant?within the store. Fans should then tab over to Add-Ons, select the relevant DLC, and install it. After that is done, players should now be able to open the game and select Mercenary as they work through?Biomutant’s character creator.
One final thing to say is that the skills and equipment that the Mercenary starts with can be unlocked by other classes later in the game. As such, players that cannot currently access the Mercenary in Biomutant?and do?not want to wait for a fix can start the game using another class without worrying too much about missing a great deal.
Biomutant?is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
