ELEX, an open world action role-playing title developed by Piranha Bytes first came to our attention all the way back in 2015. Since then, we're not ashamed to admit that we forgot about its existence entirely, so here we are two years later with a PlayStation 4 release date.

The project promises just about everything: sprawling environments, open-ended exploration, deep RPG systems, tough moral choices, a game-wide faction system, and fast paced combat. There are actually a bunch of early gameplay videos over on YouTube, and while the unfinished release certainly looks rough, we can at least see the potential. Hopefully ELEX doesn't disappoint when it launches on the 17th October.
