Biomutant features a light and dark system, similar to that seen in games such as Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic.

This will allow players to gain Light or Dark side Aura points, which can be gained through dialogue choices and will affect various aspects of the game such as dialogue options and how other characters will see and treat you.

Aura points can also be used to unlock various abilities, allowing players to create the character they want and act good or more evil, or someone in between.
