Post-apocalyptic scenarios may be played out but that’s not stopping Nordic Games’ ELEX, developed by Piranha Bytes, from presenting a future dystopia. Check out the prologue trailer below to learn more about the setting.

As a sci-fi/fantasy RPG mash-up, ELEX is about a planet called Magalan that’s hit by a strange comet. This comet lays waste to cities, generates firestorms and pretty much leaves the world barren.

Three factions rise up in the aftermath – Berserkers, Clerics and Outlaws – but more importantly, the comet brought a new resource called ELEX. It doesn’t take long before a new faction called the Albs harness ELEX’s power to try and wipe out everyone. Thus does the play try to make sense of a crazy world for a somewhat sane future.

ELEX is scheduled to release in Q3 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. What are your thoughts on the story and overall setting? Let us know in the comments below.
