Mutated creatures, you say?

Piranha Bytes is known for Gothic and Risen, but it’s stepping away from those series to create a new role-playing game, ELEX. That’s “eclectic, lavish, exhilarating, xenial.” Got it? Me neither!

We can’t actually see the game until August, at gamescom, but Piranha and publisher Nordic Games are talking about the basics. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic science-fantasy world, which means mutated creatures and, what else, moral choices. Long way off, though — ELEX won’t hit PC and consoles until winter 2016 at the earliest.

This is “by far the most ambitious project for Piranha.” Given the studio’s history, that probably means we should expect to find some cool new things but plenty of flaws, too.
