Back in 2017, Piranha Bytes released its best game to date, ELEX, promising a mix of Sci-Fi and post-apocalypse. Back in June, THQ Nordic announced ELEX 2 with a cinematic trailer, but at the time, the publisher could not announce a release date. That changed today, with the sequel being pencilled in for March 2022.
Today on the game's official Twitter account, THQ Nordic and Piranha Bytes revealed that ELEX II will be releasing on the 1st of March 2022 for PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5 and PS4.
The official description for the sequel gives us a few more details on what to expect:
“The planet Magalan has seen some rather peaceful years after the Events of ELEX I: old factions have been vanquished, new factions have risen. The Berserkers’ attempts to regrow and terraform the lands have started to bear fruit. After the defeat of the Hybrid, the Albs are no longer a threat. However, our hero – Jax – returns with knowledge of a new menace that’s casting a shadow over Magalan. It falls to Jax to unite these different factions together to face this darkness together.”
ELEX II will have its own collector's edition, which comes with the game, an art book, a soundtrack CD and statue.

KitGuru Says: We've still not seen any gameplay for this, but we shouldn't have to wait much longer, as the game is less than six months away from release – assuming it doesn't get delayed.
