ELEX is a science fantasy themed action role-playing video game developed by Piranha Bytes and published by THQ Nordic. It was released worldwide on October 17, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows. The game has been described as a “edgy, dark, uncompromising, and complex” post apocalyptic sci-fi RPG where the protagonist joins the war for the powerful resource, “ELEX”, which gives people magic-like powers. The game world is a mix of futuristic and medieval locations, in which the player can use guns, swords and magic against enemies.
ELEX is an action role-playing game set in an post-apocalyptic open world environment and played from a third-person perspective. The player can use both swords and firearms in the game, with magic becoming available later. The player is put into a huge, seamless simulated game world, where everything reacts to the player’s actions for providing an authentic atmosphere, deep moral choices and powerful actions. The game includes mutated creatures as one of the enemy types, and has a highly interconnected quest system that supports player choices. The player may join up with one of several factions – the Berserkers who use ELEX for magical purposes, the Clerics who use the substance to power their machines, or the Outlaws who embrace an “everyone for themselves” philosophy. The player will gain access to a jet pack that will enable them to traverse the game’s world by air.
