Latest ELEX Gameplay Trailer Details the Cleric Faction

THQ Nordic has released a new gameplay trailer for the Action RPG ELEX. This time, we learn more about the Cleric Faction. The followers of Calaan, the Clerics live in the thought to be inhospitable Ignadon, a volcanic region that was affected by the impact of the meteor.

Watch the Cleric Faction’s trailer below:

There’s a bit more written information about the Clerics, as well:

The site of the meteor’s impact, Ignadon is driven by constant volcanic activity. Thought to be devoid of life, Ignadon was the perfect hiding place for the Clerics to grow in power. Followers of the god Calaan, the Clerics see the consumption of Elex in any form as a sin. Instead they use Elex to power their machines. Guardians of Magalan’s technology, the Clerics put their faith in Calaan, plasma weapons, mechs and the power of industry. From the ashes shall rise a new Magalan even more advanced than before.
