Piranha Bytes’ New Prologue Trailer for ELEX

THQ Nordic has released a new trailer that serves as the prologue for Piranha Bytes’ “science-fantasy” RPG: ELEX. The prologue covers the factions of the world Magalan fighting against one another, before a comet came crashing down and left the world in tatters. The player will take control of the protagonist to explore a large open world filled with remnants of old factions, mutants, monsters, with moral choices facing the player.

There’s a bevy of weapons, ranging from traditional melee weapons like axes and swords, to futuristic plasma rifles which will give players numerous different combat options. Do players run in guns blazing, or take a more stealthy approach with a crossbow instead? The prologue trailer gives some backstory on where players will be taking off, as the game will change based upon decisions and alliances players will make.

ELEX is set to release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in Quarter 3 of this year.
