Piranha Bytes’ new science fantasy game ELEX to launch Q1 2017

Creators of the Gothic series, Piranha Bytes and Nordic Games are now working on new post-apocalyptic science fantasy open world game ELEX. The game is being developed for Xbox One, PS4 and PC and will launch in Q1 2017.

Piranha Bytes described ELEX as a completely open world game set in Magalan that was once home to a highly developed civilisation until a meteor devastated the planet. That Meteor left behind deposits of a substance called Elex which each faction in the game uses in different ways, either for magical powers, to use in a weapon or as a stimulant, every inhabitant of this post-apocalyptic world is in search of Elex.
