New Patch for ELEX Released Today

Looks like THQ Nordic, and Piranha Bytes, have heard some of the complains about their most recent game, and they have been hard at work fixing it.  They have also added some new features for gamers to check out. 


Here is some of the information they passed on to us (it’s a long list):

Xbox One:

  • Improved resolution for XBOX
  • increased quality on XBOX with 1080p display

New Difficulty Settings:

  • Player Damage: damage dealt by the player (chicken)
  • Opponent Damage: damage dealt by your Opponents (double chicken)
  • Stamina cost: modifies the stamina cost for your actions (TRIPLE CHICKEN!!!!)


  • Added FXAA T2x and SMAA T2x anti-aliasing techniques


  • Improved Angrim’s routine behavior, when he should have a small-talk with Zerwas. (Works only if Zerwas hasn’t already talked to the third Berserker)
  • The map targets regarding the research papers of the Clerics will now be updated correctly if the player has the task to obtain them for the Claws.
  • Fixed some Duras ques targets
  • Fixed a bug with Eva and a letter
  • Fixed illogical dialogue with Connor regarding his recruitment for the Clerics, fixed map targets for Connor and Xander in terms of Connor’s recruitment
  • Fixed issue where player can get stuck in a dialogue with Karl (only new game)
  • Gondar’s key can now be found near his corpse
