Watch 12 minutes of the new action-RPG Elex

Elex is a new action-RPG title from Gothic and Risen series developer Piranha Bytes that aims to heavily blend the sci-fi and fantasy genres into a unique experience where shotguns and jetpacks are just as plentiful as orcs and dragons. If you want to see the game in action, a new 12-minute gameplay video from Piranha Bytes should hopefully do the trick.

In the above video, you can see a large sampling of Elex’s various gameplay systems including ranged combat with both firearms and a more traditional bow and arrows, melee combat with a variety of weapons, magic use, attribute allocation, traversal mechanics, and more. The combat does look a little stiff at times, but overall Elex looks like the sort of game that players can really get lost in if they want, never a bad thing when it comes to the RPG genre.

Elex is set to launch on October 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
