Science-fantasy RPG Elex\u00a0gets a confirmed release date, and a brand new trailer. Elex, the new open-world action RPG from\u00a0Piranha Bytes \u2013 of\u00a0Gothic and Risen fame \u2013 will be released on\u00a0October 17, 2017 on\u00a0PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. To mark the announcement, a new cinematic trailer has been released\u00a0which shows off more of the game\u2019s Magalan location, and gives a flavour of how the choice-based progression system can impact\u00a0story and character. And it\u2019s all\u00a0set to Benj Heard\u2019s Whatever Doesn\u2019t Kill Me (Better Run), to boot. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?vGGHAu3RLpDk Publisher THQ Nordic has also released details of a Collector\u2019s Edition,\u00a0which will come bundled with an original soundtrack CD, an art book, and a 10-inch high\u00a0figurine, among other trinkets.

At the time, Piranha Bytes\u2019 Bj\u00f6rn Pankratz said: \u201cWe\u2019ve been thinking about the setting for\u00a0Elex\u00a0for almost 10 years, and we finally have the chance to implement our ideas. The mix of sci-fi and fantasy offers an incredible number of opportunities and cool contrasts that we can play around with.\u201d We\u2019ll find out just how well that mix works when the game is released in\u00a0October.
