It was just released on GOG, and you can find it here.

I know we have some GameBoomers who are Gothic fans, so I wanted to bring this to your attention. wave

Excellent, Marian! Thanks for the heads up. Elex looks like something to look forward to.

What language are you talking about, Guybrush?

Whatever language that link lead to it wasn't English. I had to close that window and reload gog myself to get English.

Hmmm... everything was in English for me. There was one review in German and part of another one in Polish, but the link was the regular GOG link with English. Strange.

I watched the trailers and it just doesn't look like Gothic to me. I miss the medieval settings and sword fighting as well as the animals you have to battle. I loved the Gothic games but this seems more like a war game.

Sometimes people do post their reviews on the GOG website in other languages.

Every once in a while the entire GOG site comes up in a different language -- German, French, Spanish, even Polish. It doesn't happen often, but I've seen it -- and I saw it earlier this week.

Close your browser and retry the exact same link. You might have to empty your browser cache, but it shouldn't happen twice.

Thanks for the reminder Marian! thumbsup We had an earlier thread going on this shortly after its announcement. While the game is by the same production house and development team who put out Gothic (THQ Nordic,) it is a departure from that particular series.

It's more of a science fiction/post-apocalyptic themed RPG; combining technology with the stylizations of high-fantasy. By leveraging the post-civilization setting, they can inject any kind of tech, weaponry or beasties they want into the settings.

The producers describe it as follows - From the original press release:

"Developed by Piranha Bytes, creators of the award-winning Gothic and Risen series, ELEX is a handcrafted action role-playing experience set in a post-apocalyptic science-fantasy universe, and puts players into a huge, seamless open world full of original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action. From swords and axes to bows, crossbows and harpoons, ELEX offers one of the widest selection of weaponry in the history of role-playing. Pick up a shotgun, power up a plasma rifle or unleash a flame thrower – there’s a weapon and combat style for every fighter out there. Then find a companion, choose a faction and influence the world; in ELEX, every choice will forge the future of your game."

Here's a link to the ELEX website for more infomation.

I feel the same way, Pokey. I'm a "dyed in the wool" bow & arrow gal myself rotfl

But thanks very much for the update, Marian yes

[And GOG definitely came up in English for me :)]

I watched a couple more trailers that look a bit more like Gothic or Fallout, though they use very modern weapons.

Well, I just bought it. I was playing a ridiculously difficult game of Oblivion (Mage skills and speechcraft only) and am limping along. Perhaps after a bit more of this abuse from everything stronger than a rat or crab I'll load Elex up and see what's what.

I will be very interested to hear your thoughts about it. wave

It'll be next on my list. In the end I abandoned Fallout New Vegas. Great game, but I decided to take a break. Something new appeals. And hey, Elex sounds like a cross between Oblivion and Fallout, so what's not to like?
