Though it may not have been the only title the publisher confirmed a release date for today, the fusion of a sci-fi and fantasy aesthetic in Piranha Bytes’ ELEX — the developers behind both the Risen & Gothic series of games — is certainly one of publisher THQ Nordic’s upcoming releases to look out for. And alongside the confirmation that fellow titles Battle Chasers: Nightwar (PS4, Xbox One, PC & Switch) and Spellforce 3 (PC only) will be available October 3 & December 7 respectively, ELEX has been confirmed as releasing on October 17 — for PS4, Xbox One & PC.
A new cinematic trailer has also been released which, in its own words, aims to set up “the road at the heart of the player’s journey, as they walk the line between the many character progression and faction choices that lie ahead”. A collector’s edition of the game has also been announced which will include a 10-inch-high figurine of an Alb Mage, a 2-inch amulet in the form of a combat drone, a cloth map of the in-game World of Magalan, a CD of the game’s soundtrack plus an art-book. Check out the new trailer below.
