Jax returns to a Magalan he could never have imagined in Elex II, now available for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
Player choice takes on a whole new meaning in Elex II as Jax comes to know a Magalan now inhabited by five distinct factions that are locked in a persistent war: The Berserkers, Morkons, Albs, Clerics, and Outlaws must all be made allies, but each could not be more different from the other. The Clerics are overly righteous and highly technical boasting some of the most feared weaponry on the planet. The Clerics splinter cell, known as the Albs, have developed magical powers through consuming massive quantities of Elex. The Berserker’s magic is regarded as perhaps the strongest as they rely on it alone for battle. The Morkons and Outlaws each bring their own brand of viciousness to planet Magalan, though the Morkons are far more calculated in their actions.
These challenging relationships must be navigated in addition to battling ravenous wildlife and otherworldly creatures such as Rock Dragons, Night Shadows, and Ice Trolls. A true action RPG, Elex II also requires exploration, skill development, equipment and resource acquisition, as well as successful interactions with vendors and teachers.
In the role of Jax, players will also have the opportunity to create their own faction, further expanding on the Elex II story. All of this in an effort to save Magalan from the mysterious creatures from the sky that are threatening the planet with complete destruction.
