ELEX (Eclectic, Lavish, Exhilarating, Xenial) is an upcoming science fantasy themed action role-playing video game developed by Piranha Bytes and published by THQ Nordic for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows. The publisher has described the game as “edgy, dark, uncompromising, and complex”, and it was featured as a cover story in the German magazine GameStar. The protagonist joins the war for a powerful resource, “ELEX”, which gives people great magic-like powers, and is a factor in deciding whether emotion and humaneness or cold synthetic logic will rule the world of Magalan. The game world will be a mix of futuristic and medieval locations, in which the player can use guns, swords and magic against enemies. The game will also feature a jet pack which can be used for the exploration of the game’s environment.
ELEX is a handcrafted action role-playing experience from the award-winning creators of the Gothic series, set in a brand new post-apocalyptic Science Fantasy universe that puts players into a huge seamless game world full of original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action.
