The Nordic Games countdown has ended, and as previously thought, it’s a new Piranha Bytes title called Elex.


Elex is described as a “handcrafted action RPG” set in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi fantasy universe, rife with mutated creatures and original characters.

Players will be immersed in a rather large, seamless world where they will need to make moral choices, and perform “powerful actions”.

Nordic Games commented that Elex is “by far the most ambitious project” for it and Piranha Bytes to-date.

“Elex is going to be edgy, dark, uncompromising, complex, and we love it already,” said Nordic’s product director Reinhard Pollice. “We will be premiering a vertical slice build at gamescom 2015 with more information released in due time.”

Elex is scheduled to release between mid-December 2016 and mid-March 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
