  • News Open World RPG Elex 2 Promises Improved Combat in This New Trailer


    Elex II, eh? The sequel to 2017's incredibly rough but somewhat fun Elex is set to release on the 1st March — and it's promising a better combat system, as you can see in this new trailer. Indeed, combat was one of the original Elex's biggest issues — an often janky mess that simply didn't feel good to play around with. Admittedly,...

  • News RPG ELEX II Dated for 1st March 2022 on PS5, PS4

    Collector's Edition detailed

    Piranha Bytes has announced the sequel to its ambitious but janky 2017 RPG ELEX will launch on PlayStation 5 and PS4 on 1st March 2022. To mark the occasion, the studio has shared a look at the Collector's Edition, which will set you back a cool £139.99/$149.99. At least this one actually includes a copy of the game,...

  • News Ambitious RPG ELEX Getting a Sequel on PS5, PS4

    Eurojank strikes back

    ELEX was one of those RPGs that didn't review particularly well at release, but developed a bit of a cult following in the years after. Praised for its ambition and ideas, it was held back by a poor opening and broken combat. Those that pushed through its brutal introduction had some good things to say, though, and it will be...

  • News We Gave ELEX a 4/10, But We'll Admit That Its Accolades Trailer Is Pretty Great


    You know what's really cool about opinions? You don't necessarily have to share them with other people. Sadly, this is a fact of life that the internet gets wrong all too often, so it's actually quite refreshing to see THQ Nordic having a laugh with its accolades trailer for ELEX. The open world role-playing game launched last month on...

    Review ELEX

    Swing and a miss

    ELEX is an open world role-playing game from a developer with an incredibly spotty track record. No stranger to B-tier titles (with the B sometimes standing for Bin), German studio Piranha Bytes has amassed something of a cult following over the years. ELEX is bound to find an audience, but that audience is bound to be small – and...

  • News Wait, Open World, Sci-Fi Action RPG ELEX Is Out on PS4 Tomorrow?

    Apparently so

    Wow, this one slipped under the radar, didn't it? An ambitious project from the developer behind the rather crap Risen series [we actually heard reviewer Alex Stinton scream just then - Ed], ELEX was announced quite a while back, and we honestly forgot that it was out this month. And by this month, we mean tomorrow, the 17th...

  • News Open World PS4 RPG ELEX Gets a New Gameplay Trailer


    Last week, we wrote about the reappearance of ELEX, an open world role-playing title that's coming to PlayStation 4 in October. Its cinematic trailer made an interesting case, and now, you can get a glimpse of the game in action thanks to its new gameplay video. We don't like judging titles by their trailers, but the release is looking...

  • News Sci-Fi Open World Action RPG ELEX Reappears, Comes to PS4 This October

    Promises a lot, but can it deliver?

    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...

  • News ELEX Brings Open World, Sci-Fi Action to PS4

    How does that sound

    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...
