After leaving behind the dark fantasy of Gothic, Piranha Bytes studio ventured into science fiction and after a relatively successful first installment, this past June announced Elex 2. Thus, during the massive presentation of news of other titles such as Destroy All Humans 2 or Outcast 2 yesterday by THQ Nordic, the company also presented a new cinematic trailer for this western-style RPG.
“Several years after Jax defeated the Hybrid, a new threat comes from the sky, unleashing the dangerous powers of the dark Elex and endangering life across the planet,” says the synopsis posted on the game’s official website. “To defend the peace in Magalan and the safety of his own family, Jax must embark on a mission to convince the factions to unite against the invaders and find his son, Dex, who was separated from him.”
Surprise for fans of classic RPG
This new trailer shows us Elex’s efforts to find new allies during his adventure. The game is described as “a large, hand-crafted world with multiple factions and diverse environments in a post-apocalyptic science fiction universe.”
Thus, Elex 2 is presented as an alternative to consider for fans of the western RPG, and the original turned out to be quite a surprise coming from a studio that had not managed to stand out with Gothic, which will soon see a remake. Already in his analysis in Meristation he achieved a not inconsiderable note of 8’5, highlighting thanks to his feeling of freedom, the size of his world and his connection with other characters, with a feeling that really the decisions we made had direct consequences in the game.
Elex 2 will arrive sometime in 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
