Nordic Games have teamed up with veteran studio Piranha Bytes to work on their first collaborative project: ELEX. The Eclectic, Lavish, Exhilarating, Xenial open-world RPG is scheduled to release on the Xbox One in Winter 2016/2017. This will be the most ambitious project for both Piranha Bytes and Nordic Games to-date.
“To say we are excited to see this new project unfold in the hands of Piranha Bytes is an understatement. ELEX is going to be edgy, dark, uncompromising, complex, and we love it already,” comments Reinhard Pollice Business & Product Development Director at Nordic Games. “We will be premiering a vertical slice build at Gamescom 2015, more info will be released in due time.”
“Apart from being enthusiastic about the cooperation with Nordic Games, it is great to know, that we will have ample creative freedom with ELEX, which is a very important factor for us” said Björn Pankratz, Game Director at Piranha Bytes. “We can’t wait to show you a completely new game experience with a fresh setting, new assets and plenty of possibilities.”
ELEX is a handcrafted action role-playing experience from the award-winning creators of the Gothic series, set in a brand new 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.
Although it’s early days, ELEX does look like it could be a very interesting game. Keep checking back here for more information on the game. We will keep you up to date, as and when we know more!
