Darksiders III is still a long way off, but THQ Nordic have offered up another slice of open world fantasy action with their new RPG ELEX.
Developed by Piranha Bytes, who are know for the Risen trilogy, ELEX is set in the far future on the distant planet Magalan, which was ravaged by a meteor strike. As the story progresses, you’ll be able to align with one of several hostile factions fighting for control of the ruined world. Despite the sci-fi setting, there’s also a huge focus on magic within the game, with the titular substance ELEX (an acronym for Eclectic, Lavish, Exhilarating, Xenial) granting arcane abilities to those who wield it.
And you’re going to need all the magic you can get, but you’ll be facing a ton of fearsome enemies, including robots, giant bugs, dinosaurs-like monsters, and a huge demonic creature known as the Slugbeast (pictured below).
ELEX is available now on Steam, PS4, and Xbox One for $59.99.
