Mortal Shell, the dark fantasy action role-playing game from developer Cold Symmetry, recently held a beta that got quite a bit of attention: over 350,000 people downloaded the game’s demo, and the beta got upwards of six million views on streaming platforms such as Twitch and YouTube. Emboldened by this success, Cold Symmetry and publisher PlayStack have revealed the game’s release date. Mortal Shell will release on August 18th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as an Epic Games Store timed exclusive (it will come to Steam in 2021).
There’s also a brand-new trailer for the game, which announced the aforementioned release date and also revealed a bunch of ranged weaponry players can utilize in Mortal Shell. Can you say, a portable ballista that functions like a bazooka? How does that even work? I guess you’ll have to play the game to find out.
