A Game I have been looking forward to for some time now with mixed feelings as launch and pre-order time grew closer. When I first saw Elex I was blown away, it was something new! Something different! Something I have been waiting for for quite a while, since my previous RPG was the Witcher 3.
But the more I look at the game the more excited I get, I think Pirhana bytes are trying to set new boundaries for themselves rather than trying to match boundaries set by other companies and rather achieving new heights in this genre.
Elex is just a couple of weeks away, so let’s get into everything we know thus far.
The world of Magalan and play time:
Elex will be set on the game world of Magalan which was an advanced futuristic world until it was hit by a meteor.
The Producers have confirmed that the game has more than a 100 plus hours of content if you complete the full game. You can also look forward to no loading screens, a smooth transition throughout the world, and when you finally finish the game and the credits roll, you can head back to complete those side missions you might have missed. If you played Gothic 3 you will be pleased to know that the world is about 1.5 times the size of Gothic 3, with various different locations and terrain. You can also expect dynamic encounters when roaming around, Animals and creatures will attack each other and when creatures approach in close proximity to the town guards, they wil defend the town. There is also a justice system, the more crimes committed in a city, the more restricted your actions will become inside the walls of that town.
Classes, factions and progression:
In Elex, progression is endless, the Producers have confirmed that there will be no level cap for your character, Factions on the other hand will have a level cap as you progress and complete a certain or every faction’s campaign.
There are 3 Factions that you can join, or you can complete each faction’s missions or campaign as you progress, joining a certain faction will place you in a bad light towards other factions, so you will have to choose wisely.
The factions are:
The Berserkers who use ELEX for magical purposes .The Clerics who use the substance to power their machines, or the Outlaws who embrace an “everyone for themselves” philosophy.
Weapons and Gear
In Elex you will be equipped with a jet pack to be able to traverse the entire universe seamlessly and effortlessly. One thing I am really pleased with is the freedom of choice when it comes to weapons, gear and spending your XP points on attributes. The producers have given the player total freedom, if you want to be a sword wielding player with magic or a gun crazed maniac the choice is yours. The producers have promised that Elex will have a large amount of weapons and variants which range from sword, shields, bow and arrows, magic and a large variety of guns.
Im really looking forward to spending some serious time on Elex and I truly hope Pirhana bites delivers on this highly ambitious game. Make sure to grab Elex as it hits the Xbox one on the 17th of October 2017.
