Biomutant DLC Mercenary Class Pre-Order

The Biomutant DLC Mercenary Class Pre-Order is a special class that you can unlock by purchasing the game before it launches. This has caused a bunch of questions among the fan base. For the most part, people are wondering what the Mercenary class is and does, and how you can get it. Most of all, they’re worried whether they’re missing out on content if they don’t get the DLC. We’ll hopefully quell some of those fears in our Biomutant DLC Mercenary Class Pre-Order guide.

How to Get Mercenary Class Pre-Order Biomutant DLC

To get the Biomutant pre-order DLC class, the best way to go about it is to get the game before launch. Why? Because that’s the best deal you’re gonna get. I’m never one to encourage pre-ordering as a practice, but hey, if you’re 100% certain you wanna play, might as well get it early and thereby unlock access to the Mercenary class. Don’t worry, you’ll still have access to the DLC class after the pre-ordering period is closed. The only bummer is that, if you choose that avenue, you’ll have to pay extra to unlock the Mercenary. Either way, even if you decide to ignore this DLC entirely, you won’t be missing anything from the base game, as we’re about to explain.

What is the Biomutant Mercenary Class

The Biomutant Mercenary pre-order DLC class begins the game with dual-wield as a starting ability, and carries “a classic Katana and the shorter Wakizashi.” In other words, if you wanna go for the whole samurai or ronin vibe with your character, the Mercenary embodies the feel right out of the gate. That said, the dual-wield ability and these swords are not exclusive to the class. You can unlock them later in the game with any class; it’s just that the Mercenary has them from the get-go. In other words, whether you get the Mercenary DLC or not is entirely up to you; the devs are not keeping anything away from you in this DLC.

How to Download Biomutant Mercenary DLC on PS5 & PS4

To download the Biomutant Mercenary DLC class on PS5 & PS4, after you’ve installed the game, highlight the icon in the console’s main menu, then hit the Options button on the controller. Before that, close the game completely, just in case. The Options button will bring up a list, in which you’ll find the Manage Game Content option. Select it, and that’s where you should find the Mercenary DLC, which will likely be marked as “Not Installed.” So, all you have to do is click the down arrow on the right and wait for the DLC to download. Then, simply start the game again, and the class will be there, in the character creation.

EDIT: if you’re having trouble finding the Mercenary on PS4, there’s a workaround you can use. Download the PS App to your phone, go to the Library, and tap on Biomutant. Tap “Download to Console” and make sure that the PlayStation that you’ll be playing on is the primary. This download the DLC for you on top of everything else. If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. Not the ideal solution, but that’s all we’ve got for now.

            I tried the work-around with the website and the app, neither are able to show the pre-order dlc, but they do allow me to download the game from there. I also tried to restore the licenses, but that didn’t work either. I am attempting my 4th install of the game now. I can’t even contact playstation and from what other people are saying it is being redirected to THQNordic. THQ has acknowledged the issue and is looking into it at this time. This is one of the reason’s I still prefer to throw dice (DnD, Pathfinder etc…).

        So, I pre-ordered the game for the playstation in the ps stor, but there is not such a button, to download the dlc?

        Thanks for helping me.

            This workaround did not work. It shows up in library as having the little controller plus 1 (1 dlc) but the DLC does not show up in game. Can’t find a manage game content button. Tried deleting and re-installing. Tried deleting and re-installing via ps app. Tried restoring licenses. Nothing works.

            It seems to be a problem with the PS store, sadly.

        I also pre ordered the game on ps4 and there is no option on the ps4 system to manage game content. So how should I handle this problem ?

    Ps4 doesn’t have the class in spite of the pre-order downloading. We can’t find the dlc, is it delayed or just not on the ps4?

    When you said that you have to press options on the game icon, supposedly you will find the Manage game content button. But so far, That only appears on PS5, Not PS4. There is no option on PS4 for that, And the DLC isnt on the store either

    Did anyone even check to see if this even works? I know you have a PS5 and probably had one since they came out because of your position in the industry. But the rest of us plebs still have PS4s.
    It just seems like you all forgot there was a different interface because you are so used to the new one.
    I’m not bitter, it’s just kind of telling.

        The work around via ps app doesn’t work neither does deleting the game and downloading it again Mercenary content just isn’t popping and the questionable bit is I was on mic with a buddy who pre ordered the game this week and he’s got the mercenary class.

    The problem is with psn store. It’s not updated. You also can not see trophys gives error code sw-37073-0 meaning it’s not on the server.

    I’m on Ps4
    Deinstalled it and re-installed it via the PS App but still, the Pre-Order Class isn’t available.
    Guess I’m starting as a Psi Freak first till they fix that Issue.

    I pre ordered the game on ps4 downloaded it on ps5 I have the standard copy but I do not see the mercenary class for biomutant. When I go to manage game content it says nothing to install but if I go to the game on my ps5 it shows as if I don’t even have it I’ll have to but it again but it’s in my queue I can play it and it’s downloaded and everything I just can’t get the mercenary class HELP PLEASE

    The workaround does not work. Stop acting as it does.

  14. B
    Brian

    What about if I preordered on pc?

  15. J
    John Smith

    OK…. you have your consoles mixed up. that option does not exist on the ps4 system. it does appear however (or an option similar) on xbox. second. the phone app and store app on console doesn’t even acknowledge the game even has dlc available dlc is always shown as separate download on ps4 (even pre ordered) in my experience right now the only proof i have anythings there at all is the add on icon showing on the Biomutant tile in the library.

    please confirm your advise before titling it as a “workaround”
    I do agree however that its something to do with PS store.this isn’t the first time pre order dlc’s have been ballesd up….we can be certain it won’t be the last. XD
