Described to me at E3 as a “Mad Max” like faction, Piranha Bytes (known for the Risen series) and THQ Nordic have shed some more light on the Outlaws faction of their upcoming open-world RPG ELEX in a new video.
The Outlaws are located in the deadly desert of Tevar, where they are were forced to settle after the bloody Territorial Wars that happened in the years preceding the game. They built most of their main settlement out of junk and other scrap, and evolved into a dangerous group of rebels not afraid to fight to survive.
The Outlaws’ weapons are much more grounded than many of the others in ELEX, whose world mixes sci-fi and fantasy. Many of the Outlaws faction’s weapons are explosive and heavy hitting, which should make for some quite visceral Dark Souls-like combat in the final build of the game.
You can check out the video featuring the Outlaws Faction below. ELEX is currently poised to launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One October 17. If you want to DualShockers’ early thoughts on the game, you can check out the preview Staff Writer Logan Moore and I wrote earlier this year about the game’s E3 build.
