After teasing the project for the last few days, developer Piranha Bytes has revealed ELEX - a sci-fi, open world title that'll eventually make it to PlayStation 4. According to the game's press release, ELEX is a "post-apocalyptic science fantasy universe that puts players into a huge, seamless game world full of original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action". Well, that just about ticks every box, doesn't it?

The action role-playing game will be on show at Gamescom next month, so we'll hopefully get to see something tangible of the release when the German show rolls around. Until then, you'll have to be content in the knowledge that the title's currently expected to release in either late 2016, or early 2017.
