ELEX official artwork and logo

ELEX is an upcoming post-apocalyptic open-world RPG from the creators of the Risen and Gothic series. As with all of their previous games ELEX is going to allow you to choose what sort of playstyle you'll mess around with, what allies you will keep and which enemies you will make, and most importantly, how you will solve each and every situation. An ambitious goal, but Piranha Byte has quite a lot of experience with this concept, so ELEX has a pretty good chance of being at least intriguing.

Whatever the case may be we won't have to wait for very long in order to find out as the release date for ELEX has been just been announced. You can expect to see it on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 17, 2017. Besides this announcement the developers have also released a CGI trailer showcasing what the player will see throughout his journey on Magalan. Have a look:

If you're like me and you care more about the story than flashy visuals, you'll find the relatively recent story trailer over here. It should give you a pretty good idea of who your character is, what the various factions are about, and what in the world happened to the... well, world!
