Nordic Games and Gothic series developer Piranha Bytes have announced Elex, a new fantasy RPG in development for current gen consoles and PC due out in winter 2016/2017.
Described as an “eclectic, lavish, exhilarating, xenial open-world RPG” (thus the name Elex), the game is set in a post-apocalyptic science fantasy universe where players enter a “huge, seamless game world” of “original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action.”
“To say we are excited to see this new project unfold in the hands of Piranha Bytes is an understatement,” said Nordic Games business & product development director Reinhard Pollice in a press release. “Elex is going to be edgy, dark, uncompromising, complex, and we love it already. We will be premiering a vertical slice build at Gamescom 2015, more info will be released in due time.”
