Elex 2 is the second installment of the RPG series developed by the German studio Piranha Bytes. The team has developed the first three installments of the iconic Gothic series, as well as the less warmly received Risen trilogy.

Story

Action of Elex 2 takes place some time after the events presented in the prequel. The players once agains take on the role of Jax - in the course of the adventure the hero gets entangled in another intrigue, and the way in which his struggle ends depends largely on player's actions. The game world features diverse, divided factions, which we can join while playing - however, it is worth remembering that joining the ranks of one of them often blocks access to some of the tasks commissioned by other groups.

Mechanics

In Elex 2 we observe the action from third-person perspective. The driving force behind the game are tasks commissioned by NPCs - whese include both story missions, as well as quests and side activities, which do not need to be completed in order to reach the finale of the adventure. Battles with enemies also play an important role. We can deal with our opponents both with melee weapons and a rich arsenal of firearms, while the damage suffered by the hero in battle is determined by the armor. In return for our activities, we gain experience points and advance to the subsequent experience levels, thus increasing the combat potential of the protagonist - this enables us to face more powerful opponents and carry out more difficult tasks.

The devs once again give us a vast open world, which we can freely explore. As in the past, the territories created for the game are very diverse - there are densely forested areas, desert areas or snow-covered mountains. In addition to the fast-travel system, this exploration is made easier by the jetpack, which enables us to explore hard-to-reach places.

Game modes

Elex 2 offers only a single-player story campaign, the completion of which is a task for several dozen hours. According to the unwritten rules followed by the developers, the title does not include multiplayer mode.

Technical aspects

Elex 2 is based on Piranha Bytes' technology, developed for the first installment of the series, which has undergone a number of improvements. The three-dimensional visuals of the title present a decent level of craftsmanship. The fun is accompanied by a dedicated atmospheric soundtrack.
