    German gaming event goes all-digital, gets taken over by North Americans like Geoff Keighley and IGN, actual German developers get crowded out. Sad!

    The #2 rule of ELEX-FACTS is that the image must be unrelated to the 'fact'.

    Also, in case anyone wondered, the #1 rule of ELEX-FACTS is that they should never be facts, more like vague observations or advice.

    I think that's a done up version of the 'Critter' from Elex 1.

    I always thought they were amphibian/frog-esque.

    Unknown. Maybe they'll give us a release date during the "10 Years of THQ Nordic" stream on September 17th -- there's supposed to be a segment about ELEX 2.

    Elex 1 had temperature hazards, no? At least as a gate-keeper for the snow biome until late game?

    It had heat hazards near lava, poison hazards, radiation hazards, and cold hazards at the converters.

    I played ELEX about 7-8 months ago and I absolutely loved it, I am a huge fan of the PB RPG design which always includes

    1. No hand holding when it comes to certain monsters and places on the map.....you will irrefutably get killed by certain enemies until you high enough level
    2. Factions that you eventually need to join to progress the main quest
    3. True Sandbox like Elder Scroll games where you can go more or less anywhere you want in the interests of exploring
    4. Crafting and important ingredient gathering like herbs
    5. A myriad of interesting and sometimes banal quests but they allow you to progress with level advancement

    I have played all the Gothic and Risen games and I also loved them but ELEX for me was basically a culmination of everything PB has learnt over the years and just made better
    So I am definitely excited about ELEX 2 and its a " day 1 purchase " for sure :salute:

    it helps that in BP games all the usable ingredients have unique 3D models compared to something like witcher / skyrim that usable plants looks more or less like the regular foliage with different textures. if you can see it, you can tell wether it's healing plant or mana plant, or troll leaf / whatever. and each size of plant have different models too makes it so much convenient to forage without depending on stupid map icons.

    True, I like those types of design decisions and I love exploiting the AI in these types of games
    For example I remember when I was level 5 I made a slugbeast follow me back to the Berserker camp, it killed numerous NPCs on the way to the camp which was funny seeing people die trying to kill it but when the slugbeast arrived in the camp it was killed by the high level Berserkers ..very entertaining and I claimed the treasure afterwards :D
