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.

A third person action-RPG developed by the creators of the legendary Gothic series - German studio Piranha Bytes. In contrast to the aforementioned Gothic, Elex is set in a dark post-apocalyptic universe that combines elements of both science-fiction and fantasy and where technology meets magic. In terms of mechanics, the game is similar to other modern action-RPGs. You get to explore a large open world, embark on a series of storyline missions as well as side quests, encountering numerous non-player characters along the way and, of course, slaying a wide array of monsters. Similarly to previous Piranha Bytes productions, the title features only single player gameplay with no online features.

More About Elex
Apparently, the team at Piranha Bytes looked to the first Gothic games as source of inspiration for Elex. True, world design and gameplay model bear some resemblance to those classics, but the prehistoric technology is a different thing altogether…
After some time spent watching and then playing Elex, an RPG by the German studio Piranha Bytes, it’s hard to believe it will be on par with Gothic. Will a well-developed world make up for technical shortcomings?
Elex, the new game from Piranha Bytes, combines elements of Gothic with a completely new universe. We’ve had the opportunity to see and try out the game for ourselves.
How much Gothic can we find in Elex? How will our cooperation with factions work? We had a chance to talk to Bjorn Pankratz, the game director at Piranha Bytes, and we asked him to shed some more light on their upcoming RPG.
Narrative, environment, exploration and simulation – these are the key elements of Piranha Bytes’ newest game. The details revealed on the gamescom 2015 make a strong case for Elex being the best game in their career.
