Piranha Bytes has released the first patch for its latest action RPG, ELEX, that fixes some crashes for systems with more than 16 logical CPU cores.
Now release a patch to fix the animation system.
Is this worth getting, reviews were terrible and thats a long list of bug fixes
I never once had a problem with the game in regards to technical issues on PC. I played the entire game, completed every quest I found - took about 60 hours. Like with many patches, these fixes aren't a global issue. Some people have problems others don't. In short, this game is hard to recommend. If you want to play the game as a shooter - then there's a chance you'll enjoy it if you're into open world RPGs. The problem comes if you want to play as a melee character (like I did). The game isn't balanced. Armor doesn't appear to work at all in this game. Stamina management is a pain in the ass. It takes way too much stamina to dodge, and melee damage requires sequential hits as a damage ramp-up mechanic. By the end of the game, I was as tanky as I could be. I had max health, armor, and stamina for my character. Any fight where I wasn't 1v1, it was a frustrating situation of instant death, reload, instant death, reload - then get lucky and avoid a ranged attack and win the fight. The end boss, I literally killed in 3 melee hits (yes melee is THAT powerful), but since armor doesn't work you're at a constant disadvantage to the gameplay mechanics. All that said, it's still a fun game. I can 100% understand why critics didn't like it overall. It can easily be frustrating to play, especially when you're wielding that melee weapon and not a bow, gun or rocket launcher.
Best written review I've seen for this game.
