A new open world RPG by Piranha Bytes, the creators of Gothic and Risen series.


ELEX is an open-world action RPG made in collaboration with 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.

The protagonist is 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 was released on the 17th of October 2017
