THQ Nordic has announced that its upcoming science-fantasy, open world, action RPG ELEX, developed by Piranha Bytes, creators of the award-winning Gothic and Risen series, will be out on October 17th. In order to celebrate this announcement, THQ Nordic released a new CGI trailer for the game, that establishes the heart of the player’s journey on Magalan, a planet devastated after a meteor collision.
ELEX is described as 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.
In ELEX, players will be able to 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. Players can then find a companion, choose a faction and influence the world as in ELEX, every choice will forge the future of the game (or at least that’s what the publisher claims).
