If you’ve been looking to scratch that open world RPG itch, ELEX looks like it could be the game for the job. It’s shaping up to be a mixture of science fiction and fantasy elements. It’s like Skyrim and Fallout had a baby, which definitely isn’t a bad thing.
Official statement from THQ Nordic:
“Developed by Piranha Bytes, creators of the award-winning Gothic and Risen series, ELEX is a handcrafted action role-playing experience set in a post-apocalyptic science-fantasy universe, and puts players into a huge, seamless open world full of original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action. From swords and axes to bows, crossbows and harpoons, ELEX offers one of the widest selection of weaponry in the history of role-playing. Pick up a shotgun, power up a plasma rifle or unleash a flame thrower – there’s a weapon and combat style for every fighter out there. Then find a companion, choose a faction and influence the world; in ELEX, every choice will forge the future of your game.”
You can check out the prologue trailer below. No gameplay is shown, but it’ll give you a taste of the world you’ll be playing in.
