ELEX is an open world action RPG made in collaboration by Nordic Games and Piranha Bytes, the creators of Gothic and Risen series. ELEX stands for "eclectic, lavish, exhilarating, xenial"
The game is set in a post apocalyptic science fantasy universe named Magallan, which will involve four factions that the player can join. Different factions will use the technology called ELEX differently, (which is used as a drug and also to make magic) with some using guns and ELEX for combat and some rejecting it completely. These factions that reject the ELEX technology will only use medieval weapons. The factions consist of a bandit faction - a modern terrorist faction that uses ELEX, the Alba modern military faction that uses ELEX, and two medieval factions - one using ELEX, and the other rejecting it.
It is confirmed that the protagonist will be a male character with a background story, and won't be nameless. The game will be played from a third person perspective. The player will be able to use both guns and swords in the game, with magic becoming available later
The world will be a mix of futuristic and medieval locations, and will consist of mutated creatures as one of the enemy types.
The game is expected to be released on the 17th of October 2017
