The creators of Gothic turn over a new leaf together with THQ Nordic and tackle their first new, collaborative project: ELEX
THQ Nordic teams up with veteran studio Piranha Bytes to work on their first collaborative and new project: ELEX. This eclectic, lavish, exhilarating, xenial open-world RPG is scheduled to release in Winter 2016/2017 on PC and current gen console platforms. This is by far the most ambitious project for Piranha Bytes and THQ Nordic to date.
“To say we are excited to see this new project unfold in the hands of Piranha Bytes is an understatement. ELEX is going to be edgy, dark, uncompromising, complex, and we love it already,“ comments Reinhard Pollice Business & Product Development Director at THQ Nordic. “We will be premiering a vertical slice build at Gamescom 2015, more info will be released in due time.”
“Apart from being enthusiastic about the cooperation with THQ Nordic, it is great to know, that we will have ample creative freedom with ELEX, which is a very important factor for us” said Björn Pankratz, Game Director at Piranha Bytes. “We can’t wait to show you a completely new game experience with a fresh setting, new assets and plenty of possibilities.”
ELEX is a handcrafted action role-playing experience from the award-winning creators of the Gothic series, set in a brand new post-apocalyptic science fantasy universe that puts players into a huge, seamless game world full of original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action.
