Open-world pedigree

The sequel to ELEX, the vintage open-world role-playing experience from the award-winning creators of the Gothic and Risen series, Piranha Bytes.

Having played quite a bit of the original, I’m interested to see what improvements they’ve made to the series’ formula.

ELEX had issues with the combat difficulty, with encounters being too easy, then punishingly harsh just 10 foot away. Making micro-saving a standard practice. But ELEX had solid foundations to push the series, with sequels often surpassing originals in gaming.

ELEX II returns to the post-apocalyptic Science Fantasy world of Magalan, with massive environments that can be explored with unrivaled freedom via jetpack – you will be able to move through the epic story any way you want!

Definite face pareidolia feelings.

Save the planet, save your son… in that order

Several years after Jax defeated the Hybrid, a new threat arrives from the sky, unleashing the dangerous powers of dark Elex and endangering all life on the planet.

In order to defend the peace on Magalan and the safety of his own family, Jax embarks on a mission to convince the factions to unite against the invaders, as well as a personal quest to find his son, Dex, who got separated from him …

Dive into a huge, hand-crafted, completely unique world with multiple factions and diverse environments set in a post-apocalyptic science fantasy universe.

Purple, the colour of evil magicks… and Ribena.
