ELEX - New Trailer Explores the 'Mood' of the Game

Posted Jul 01, 2016 by Suzie Ford

ELEX - New Trailer Explores the 'Mood' of the Game

A new video has been released by Piranha Bytes that shows off locations in ELEX and sets the mood of the game world. The video was created using pre-alpha footage and features a wide variety of locations, monsters, a bit of combat and a look at some NPCs. See what you think and leave us your thoughts in the comments.

The Story

Magalan, the completely open game world of ELEX, was home to a highly developed civilisation until a catastrophic meteor strike devastated the planet, reducing it to a post-apocalyptic world. The meteor also deposited a substance that is now found in nearly everything: Elex, and each faction uses it in a different way. Every inhabitant of the world is constantly looking for Elex, whether as a substance with magical powers, to use in a weapon or as a pure stimulant.

A Game of Contrasts

ELEX is all about contrasts: science vs fantasy, magic vs laser weapons and logic vs emotions. In ELEX, Piranha Bytes combines all the game elements that RPG fans love and has placed them in an entirely new environment: a science-fantasy setting. These contrasts are also evident in the various factions.

Use of Elex

While one faction, the Albs, consider the ingestion of Elex as part of their cult, the Clerics group ban the consumption of Elex on religious grounds, and use it to build their high-tech weapons. The Berserkers however, a people who live in harmony with nature, process Elex into mana and use it to craft magical weapons. As for the Bandits, their society has no fixed rules, but they live by the credo: “Take anything you can grab, or someone else will.”
