ELEX Details; Trailer

Nordic Games offers some new details on ELEX, the post-apocalyptic RPG in the works at Gothic developer Piranha Bytes. They now say to expect this foe Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in the first quarter of next year, and offer a "mood" video to, you know, get you in the mood. Here's a new outline of what to expect from this game, and how it will pit brother against sister, up versus down, and Coke versus Pepsi:

The Story
Magalan, the completely open game world of ELEX, was home to a highly developed civilisation until a catastrophic meteor strike devastated the planet, reducing it to a post-apocalyptic world. The meteor also deposited a substance that is now found in nearly everything: Elex, and each faction uses it in a different way. Every inhabitant of the world is constantly looking for Elex, whether as a substance with magical powers, to use in a weapon or as a pure stimulant.

A Game of Contrasts
ELEX is all about contrasts: science vs fantasy, magic vs laser weapons and logic vs emotions. In ELEX, Piranha Bytes combines all the game elements that RPG fans love and has placed them in an entirely new environment: a science-fantasy setting. These contrasts are also evident in the various factions.

Use of Elex
While one faction, the Albs, consider the ingestion of Elex as part of their cult, the Clerics group ban the consumption of Elex on religious grounds, and use it to build their high-tech weapons. The Berserkers however, a people who live in harmony with nature, process Elex into mana and use it to craft magical weapons. As for the Bandits, their society has no fixed rules, but they live by the credo: “Take anything you can grab, or someone else will.”

Watched the trailer, and the thing that completely turned me off of this was that giant robot jumping in the air and the whole view losing it's form of weight. It just went to anime style in a pseudo plausible, semi dark, post-apocalyptic world, and I was like.

Nope, Ain't gonna get any of my hard earned money on that.

The thing just had no sense of weight, and it lost all interest right there.
