VIENNA, Austria and ESSEN, Germany - June 1, 2017 – THQ Nordic‘s upcoming science-fantasy, open world, action RPG ELEX , developed by Piranha Bytes, creators of the award-winning Gothic and Risen series, will be out on October 17, 2017 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
