    If you are a fan of Darksiders or Risen, you will definitely be hyped for the new game announced by Nordic Games. This new game is called ELEX, and is described as an "Eclectic, Lavish, Exhilarating, Xenial" open-world role-playing game. ELEX will be developed by Piranha Bytes and published by Nordic Games, and this is the first time these two have collaborated. "ELEX is going to be edgy, dark, uncompromising, complex, and we love it already," said Reinhard Pollice, the business and product development director at Nordic Games.

    The game will take place in a "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," according to a press release by Nordic. ELEX is in development for PC and all current generation console platforms. This new game is scheduled for release in late 2016 or early 2017.

    The details of ELEX are scarce right now until it makes its debut at Gamescon in August. There have been no pictures or videos released at the time.

    I will be sure to update this article as more details are released on the game. What are your opinions on what you've heard so far? Do you think the game will flop or be a hit? Let everyone know in the comment section.

    It sounds like: A little Fallout a little Halo. I did not see anything on the view scheme.

    That really sounds interesting. 'Science fantasy?' That right there has really gotten me interested. I hope it's a Cyberpunk game.
    if you don't know what cyber punk is, it's a theme that takes place in the distant future where technology is super-advanced and there are major cities like New York city quite literally everywhere. Deus Ex Machina is a prime example of the cyber punk theme.

      Dishonored had the steampunk touch to it, along with the new Assassin's Creed game.

      I haven't played Dishonered in a long while. I haven't played any AC games after Black Flag.

      I've only played a little bit of the original Assassin's creed game, never any of the other ones.

    Let's hope that this game has replayability.

    That font is extremely reminisce of Halo. That ring too. Indications of a lack of originality? Maybe - Only time will tell! I like that type of game they are describing though, so I hope it's good.

      I thought of the same thing when I saw the design. It oddly resembles the Halo franchise.

    Seems interesting, in fact, it sounds a lot like The Elder Scrolls.
    Let's hope its not a complete rip off.

    Great article by the way!
