Piranha Bytes' upcoming action-RPG ELEX will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017, publisher Nordic Games has confirmed. The game had previously been slated for release in late 2016/early 2017.

First revealed last July, ELEX is described as an open-world action-RPG set in a "post-apocalyptic Science Fantasy universe" full of "original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action". It'll also feature jetpacks, Nordic says, allowing for "full vertical exploration".
