Mortal Shell releases tomorrow

At the eleventh hour an agreement was struck and Mortal Shell will have a physical edition, set to be released in October of 2020. Mortal Shell is an dark action-RPG similar to the soulsborne genre created by FromSoftware.

Mortal Shell is set to release digitally worldwide on August 18th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Game Store. PC editions of the physical game will not come with a disc, but instead a key is used to redeem the title. The boxed version of Mortal Shell is set to launch across Europe and North America on October 2nd.

“The response to Mortal Shell has been energizing and unrelenting,” said Harvey Elliott, CEO of the game’s publisher, Playstack. “Ever since we revealed the project, fans have been continually telling us across Discord, email and social media that they desperately want a physical edition. We are delighted to be answering the community’s call, and we are working on some exclusive extras that will make the boxed version even more special.”

Physical copies of Mortal Shell will include an exclusive fold-out poster and softcover art book, featuring never-before-seen concept and character are. The physical editions are priced at $29.99, and are set to be released at major participating retailers, with store pages going live soon.

Last week’s announcement of a physical release came after the incredible fan response to the beta, which was downloaded by more than 350,000 players in one week. The beta also surpassed more than 6 million views across Twitch and YouTube.

Mortal Shell, created by a small and passionate team of development veterans, will launch August 18th on the Epic Games Store, the PlayStation Store, and Xbox Games Store. The PC version comes to the Epic Games Store as a timed-exclusive. A Steam version is set to be released later in 2021.
