    Gotta admit I'm not happy about that design. Makes me think of cotton candy.

    It's also a bit disappointing that the aliens look like basic humanoids.

    I'd rather they play it safe in alium appearances and make their culture distinct and interesting see Protoss or Tau. Call me a human supremacist, but so far most presentations of aliens in franchises like star wars, star trek or mass effect made me cringe.

    You're saying it's the actual alien? I thought it's a human in alien-looking armor made of bones of some creature.

    As a long-time consoomer of ELEX-FACTS... they've always been poorly translated non-factual eurojank tweets, like this.

    I think my biggest gripes with the original Elex despite liking the core game was the near-zero amount of dungeons and the distinct lack of effort put into locations worth exploring given how the game is so geographically focused on ruins. They're all boring and there's nothing in them. So when I see a post about a geographical location in the open world in marketing for Elex II, it actually makes me dehyped

    It is cotton candy and the threat is obesity and tooth disease.

    Dungeons are unrealistic, overused in RPGs and often boring. Why would anyone dig vast underground complex to conduct their opetations, when it is cheaper and more practical to construct facilities above ground? It only makes sense for a jail or tomb, but tombs don't have to be large, convoluted labirynths, just several chambers. And jails should have logical plan, which also makes for a poor maze.

    ELEX 3 will basically be Gothic 3 where the aliens enslaved human society.
    Hear my words!

    The ones you are advocating for are. The unrealistic and interesting ones are extremely lacking in most mainstream titles - at least for the last 20 years.

    but ok yeah sure let's not implement interesting locations to explore in our game of jet packs spell casting and laser cannons because it would be 'unrealistic'

    Interesting locations don't have to be underground...

    a post containing the word dungeons isn't necessarily only about dungeons so even if we ackknowledge the dubious worth of your anti-dungeon fetish my point wasn't "zomg no dungeons", the point was that the open world was boring to explore. good dungeons comes to mind as an easy remedy but by all means let's have skyscrapers instead if you don't like going down stairs

    I'm assuming you didn't play the first game.
