Elex 2 is the sequel to the 2016 RPG Elex. It was recently announced by THQ Nordic, and is still currently in development for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
Like the first game it is set in the post-apocalyptic science-fantasy world of Magalan. Several years after the story in the first game, the game’s protagonist Jax is faced with the challenge of finding his son Dex while building alliances with various factions. A new threat has appeared, and it’s up to Jax and his alliances to master it and fight it.
In a presentation by THQ Nordic, Wccftech reported that the game will feature over 100 types of enemies. There will also be five factions, with over 300 NPCs playing a part in its story.
There will also be a lot of combat. Jax will also have different party members that each have their own unique questlines. There are also world quests and dungeons you can explore. The sequel will also feature jetpacks, different environments, and various types of enemies.
With all these, players can expect up to 60 hours of play time, although there’s no news yet whether there will be multiple endings.
Elex 2 Release Date
THQ Nordic and Piranha Bytes are yet to announce a release date for Elex 2, but its Steam page shows it is “Coming Soon” so we might expect it to launch later this year.
