ELEX - Steam Entry and a Countdown

by Myrthos, 2015-11-24 12:16:14

Eye informed us that Piranha Bytes' next RPG, ELEX, can now be followed on Steam.

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.

In ELEX, you join the war over a powerful resource that gives people great magic-like powers, but turns them into indifferent cold creatures. You decide if emotions and humaneness or cold synthetic logic will rule the world of Magalan.


  • Completely seamless Open World experience without borders and loading zones for the ultimate exploration experience
  • Vertical Exploration: Use the jetpack to reach any place in the game world
  • Simulated game world where everything reacts to the players actions and provides for an authentic atmosphere
  • Highly interconnected quest system that support true player choices
  • Tactical and challenging combat system for close and ranged combat
  • Universe set in a post apocalyptic science fantasy universe that combines the most interesting aspects of all genres

You can also check out our Gamescom preview of the game from some information.

In addition an event is coming at the Piranha Bytes fanart portal, which still has over 4 and a half day to go at the moment of this writing. We don't know what it is, but my guess would be that it is related to some artwork...
