ELEX is a sci-fi single-player action rpg game that was announced of its arrival at Gamescom 2015. I had to look up the meaning of ELEX because the title did not give me any hints as to what the game was about. ELEX means eclectic, lavish, exhilarating, xenial. So how does that fit into the game? I guess the plot has to be understood first.
A meteor hits the planet Magalan, causing massive chaos and destruction on a global scale. Much of the planet's resources has been destroyed, and a new resource is found from the meteor that crashed into the planet. The new resource's name is, can anyone guess?
Its ELEX. The remaining survivors of the planet fight over the precious resource, precious because it gives power to the machines, gives magical powers, and even change an existing life form into something new, never before seen. My precious anyone?
Just like money, its not money that's evil, its how you use it. Different people with opposing beliefs have their own idea on how ELEX should and can be used.
You will play as a former member of the Albs, who believe cold hard logic alone is the only way to make decisions using ELEX. Your playable character crash lands his glider jet and is not able to use ELEX, thus going through withdrawal symptons like feeling emotions for the first time. He becomes an outcast of the Alb faction and must hide his identity throughout the game from the other factions.
There are three more factions:
1. Beserkers - they renounced the ways of the previous modern technology and use ELEX to craft and weave magic through nature.
2. Clerics - they worship some god called Calaan and use ELEX to power their machines. They also have organized themselves into a police like state. Anyone seen the movie Equilibrium? Kinda reminds of me of them.3. Outlaws - They operate under a philosophy of "survival of the fittest", and use ELEX as a stimulant drug.
ELEX is an action rpg, third person perspective game, set and played in a post-apocalyptic open world game environment. There will be firearms and swords to equip as weapons. Magic will be become available to you later in the game. The game revolves around your choices and the choices you make will have effects and consequences in the game. The game introduces the familiar quest game mode.
Not much seems known about the game, which is good. Just like watching any good movie, I don't want to know the entire plot, secrets, twists, etc. THQ Nordic has published games like AquaNox, Darksiders, Painkiller: Hell & Damnation, SpellForce, and The Guild 3. The game seems to be interesting enough to try out when it releases in October 17, 2017.
