    They actually tried but PB Red's Spacetime was cancelled.

    I imagine that being bought by THQ Nordic has also affected Elex 2 production which should have been announced during the Gamescom.

    Elex will be released the same day cyberpunk does. This will ruin cd projekt for good since everyone will buy and play Elex and not cyberpunk.

    Do you recommend some mods for the very fist and only playthrough? I've heard that the game is not balanced properly as some skills and weapons are useless.
    What do you think about Overhaul Mod?

    Their recent release schedule suggests it should have been out this year but with Covid etc. it would make sense that it's delayed. I'd be shocked if it isn't out the next year.

    Now It's official no Elex 2 announcement this year. At least they say that it's pretty far in development hopefully it will be out next year.

    Michael Ruve is the captain and piranha bytes is his galleon. He must help his crew of pirates weather the storm, sail through rocks and dangerous waters.
    But all of it is worth it, because he will deliver us all shipwrecked gamers to the wondrous treasure island of Elex 2.

    Good news for CDPR I guess. Now everyone who's starved for sci-fi will buy CP2077 to help tide them over to ELEX 2.

    Ok, I started playing Elex yesterday, the game's great and all, but some things annoy me.

    I'm fairly decent with German but not fluent enough to understand stuff 100% every time, so I tried playing with audio in German and subtitles in English, and vice-versa. I've never seen a translation that was so different from the original. The English seems a lot more stripped down and sometimes the subject of conversation and options have little to do with each other. I saw a German Youtube video that recommended the English version, while Roxxor's review claims the German is the only authentic version. I think I'll play the English first and then the German after a full playthrough.

    Does increasing stats have any effect apart from unlocking skills? I stupidly spent my first 20 attribute point in Cunning hoping to create a talker character and not only there doesn't seem to be any effect, I can't train any skills without a secondary attribute. I guess I'll start over.

    Nights are WAY too bright. I can't distinguish between night and day, which ruins my retro Piranha Bytes experience. Is this mod any good? https://www.nexusmods.com/elex/mods/55?tab=description

    Don't. The German and international versions actually have completely different scripts, the English version is not a translation.

    Nope.

    So what's the main difference between English and German scriptwise? What do you miss out on playing English?

    Do Elex 2 does exist and may very well come out next year?

    Next year is already better than this one then

    Well, weapons have steep attribute requirements.

    I can't rep, so thanks for the answer.

    I can't believe a legendary studio like PB would allow a travesty like this. Seems like something Hideo Kojima would come up with as a joke.
