Developers start to tease different factions of their latest, this time sci-fi-themed, world.

Piranha Bytes is slowly preparing themselves for the release of ELEX – the game is expected sometime in Q3 of 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As we know, similarly to their previous games, we will be able to join one of several different factions.

One of those is a group known as the Berserkers, but you shouldn’t use your standard fantasy connotations. In ELEX they are warriors, that’s true, but they are also heavily based on magic. Below you will find a short official synopsis, as well as the trailer with some nice glimpses of gameplay:

Having found a way to transmute Elex into pure Mana, the Berserkers are transforming Magalan’s shattered wastes into lush, living woodland. From their capital Goliet in Edan, they range through the world to find places to plant their “world hearts”. Huge plants, able to revitalise the planet. The Berserkers decline any kind of technology, their city looks like right from the medieval times. When it comes to combat, they rely on sword, axes, crossbows… and magic.
