Risen and Gothic studio issues its second Elex installment in March next year
Elex was released by in 2017 by THQ Nordic, the same studio behind Risen and Gothic. If you have worries that western RPGs are making the RP aspect less important, you come can get used to the game within around 10 hours through accepting that everything is very dangerous. Elex was met with rather mixed reviews upon release in 2017.
A sequel was announced earlier this year showing that the release date is pretty soon: March 1, 2022. Many YouTubers were granted access to the game in September — it particularly looks a lot prettier than the 2017 instalment. For example, there’s a greater value in production in cutscenes!
Piranha Bytes is promising “unprecedented freedom” as you explore the vast planet of Magalan. There’s also the promise of a “massively improved control system” with “fluid close and ranged combat.” The combat in Elex was serviceable—it’s only a small portion of what you do in the game—but it could definitely benefit from being fun. Did I mention Elex had a jetpack? Elex 2 does too.
