Elex is a vast RPG game from Piranha Bytes, a developer team famous for the subsequent installments of the Gothic series. Their latest work shares many similarities with Gothic, but also many completely new elements. The biggest difference is brought with the game world. We are transported to the planet Magalan, which suffers from aftereffects of a meteor impact. In the planet's new, post-apocalyptic environment magic coexists with hyper-advanced technology, and elex, the mysterious new element brought to this world by the asteroid offers new, unheard of possibilities. The game offers vast freedom of choice when it comes to character development, or joining one of the three vastly different in-game factions. Each of them provides different quests and different means of dealing with them.
