ELEX Patch Addresses Quest & Gameplay Issues


Piranha Bytes has released a huge new ELEX patch that is designed to address a large number of quest and gameplay issues. In addition to a more stable game, players can now choose difficulty settings including:

  • Player Damage that tweaks how much damage a player deals (DOH!)
  • Opponent Damage – you guessed — how much damage an enemy dishes out
  • Stamina cost that modifies how much energy is expended per action

From there, a literal laundry list of fixes is show along with some nifty additions such as Chinese language support and dialog fixes.

This is a really welcomed update as ELEX has great core game play but had suffered from annoying bugs that degraded the experience.


Here’s a bit from our recent review:

All in all, if you’re a fan of open world exploration and complex combat, ELEX may be the game for you, though I would add the caveat that you may want to see how things improve over the coming months. There’s already a plan for a Day 1 patch (see below) that may take care of some of the game’s most glaring issues.

Part of me feels guilty for liking something that’s such a mess in many ways, but the bottom line is that ELEX is a game that grows on you. I just wish they’d spent another 6 to 9 months working on it. Still, given enough time and attention, it may become something truly special.
