I enjoyed the city you could help run in the first game. The factions were all kinda pricks.

The good news in ELEX 2 is you don't have to join any of the "pricks" if you don't want to . There will be a factionless path.

I'm quite curious how that will work out with regard to the skills, character development or equipment like armors since the choice of the faction and character progression have traditionally been closely intertwined in PB games.
The equipment thing should be rather trivial to accomplish if there is equipment that is about as good as the faction armor/weapons but what about the skills?

Will there be an extra tree for factionless characters or will they make it so you can acquire skills from all faction skill trees but the cost (learning points or whatever) will be much higher like double or three times the regular rate?

PB aren't exactly known for subtlety and I think it is already pretty clear that the so called 6th power by Adam Dawkins (the Hyrbid) may be related to the factionless path. So maybe that is where you will get your skills and equipment from? But then again it is not truly factionless if you still have to kind of side with Dawkins and the 6th power, right?

It should be interesting to see how all this will play out…

Had me laughing when I saw the new Morkon faction seem to be just as 'prickish' as the others. Why is so hard for PB to create a faction that anyone would want to join?? Like @Hastar said, the people in the little town were cool.

Do we know if the game recognizes what faction you used to be in with ELEX 1? It sounded like some of them were referencing past events in the trailer.

I don't think so. There's no save importing that I'm aware of. Most of the quests in Elex 1 were available regardless of which faction you were part of. Some choices were made canon.

Very nice… now how about an optional first-person perspective, and fully-redefineable keys/mouse please ? Thanks…

Looks like they have gone for the cheapo voice actor company again unfortunately. Sounds really bad. Not that I'll care that much but the western journos will hate it or call it quaint jank as a result. Just always thought from their point of view if they invested a little more on the english voice over work and translation they would probably do a lot more business.

I'm a day 1 buyer, but torn between cleric and alb factions. I went cleric in Elex, so I'll await further information from the FAST players who will have finished the game long before I have to make a choice!!

lol, I don't think the voice acting is that bad, overall. Sure, a few voices are below par, but some of them sound good to me.

And to be honest, I kinda like the overall vibe, its goofy, but in a funny and interesting way. Maybe instead of goofy, I should say "offbeat".

It doesn't put me off the game, though I do still have concerns over the flying aspects.

But I liked the factions, how there are many different distinct ones, sure they are kinda goofy, but entertainingly so. And I liked the flying dragon-like things, and graphics and world look pretty good.

Question for you Elex experts. I enjoyed the beginning of the game, but felt shoe-horned into joining the first faction that was at the start of the game because getting to the other areas seemed really difficult because of it being a Gothic game.

However, I read that if I picked a faction, I couldn't change later, which effectively put a stop to quest progression (and gear upgrades, so it seemed).

I ended up bouncing off it after about 10-or-so hours at that point, having done all the quests up to a certain point, but struggled to open other areas of the maps.

In earlier games (I finished all the Risens) you can join most factions and then decide / jump to what you wanted. Elex seemed more restrictive so I never progressed as far as I would have liked.

Any thoughts as to whether Elex2 will be better in this regard? (Or did I miss something with Elex 1)?

Unfortunately I think after only 10 hours of play you didn't have a high enough level character to go anywhere on the map. I know on my play through I felt that all of the factions were kind of dickish so I bounced around to all of their locations and did all the quests before finally settling on the cleric faction. But I was like 50 or 60 hrs of play time at that point.
One thing I know I really enjoyed with Elex I was the fact that it was so fun to explore, there were all sorts of hidden goodies located almost everywhere if you were willing to put the effort into looking for them.
I'm definitely looking forward to Exex II as I had a lot of fun playing the first one.

I felt the opposite.
Going from one area to another was very easy with the jet pack. There was never a need to fight the wildlife. I went to each of the factions before making a decision.

@Irien Yeah, you definitely missed something. Elex isn't any different than their earlier games in that way. Choosing your faction doesn't lock you out of most quests. There are very few exclusive quests that I can recall.

Also, you can't change your faction once you join one in the Risen games. I think you're just remembering how doing quests for one didn't lock you out of the others. Elex is the same way.

I'm liking the look of the game. Not all that crazy about the flying bit, though. I'd have to play a while to see if it's just a cheap trick to attract new players. The jet-pack in E1 was just enough for me.
I maxed out nearly every quest before choosing my faction. I like to take my time exploring. Not a speed runner by any stretch. I played quite a while even after finishing the main quest/game. Still stuff to find and do.

Voice acting doesn't worry me a bit. As long as it isn't terrible, I can just watch an old Godzilla movie. Below-average voice acting sounds wonderful after an hour watching one of those!

Well lets be reasonable. Its less about the content and more that your Ti-83 Plus won't be able to handle the graphics.

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!
