'Mortal Shell' Gets Closed Beta Date, Shows Off Gameplay - Trailer

by Rainier on June 12, 2020 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

Mortal Shell is a ruthless and deep action-RPG that tests your sanity and resilience in a shattered world.

As the remains of humanity wither and rot, zealous foes fester in the ruins. They spare no mercy, with survival demanding superior awareness, precision and instincts. Track down hidden sanctums of devout followers and discover your true purpose.

Awakening as an empty vessel, you will enter into a shattered and twisted world where the remains of humanity wither and rot. Implored to do the bidding of the mysterious “Dark Father,” you must traverse this tattered landscape and track down hidden sanctums of devout followers. There, in Mortal Shell’s most hallowed grounds, you must overcome formidable foes and harvest the sacred glands. You won’t be truly alone when the dead litter your path: Scattered across this land are the remnant anima of lost warriors who can be inhabited to gain their unique abilities and knowledge of weapons.

The Dark Father is desperate for you to complete your task — but to what end?

Your adversaries spare no mercy, with survival demanding superior awareness, precision and instincts. Possess lost warriors, track down hidden sanctums of the devout, and face formidable foes.

This new trailer centered around Eredrim, one of the game’s four Shells, whose path is resisted by formidable and awe-inspiring foes.

Mortal Shell's closed beta will commence July 3, 2020 and will last one week.

Players can sign up to participate in a limited closed beta on the game's official website.

Mortal Shell is set to take center stage again this week, with another scintillating gameplay video and all-new trailer scheduled to take place during the PCGaming Show on Saturday.

"We're excited for you to begin your perilous journey through the melancholy world of Mortal Shell," said the founders of Cold Symmetry in a joint statement. "We made this game for you, those who enjoy persevering through lands of sorrow, discovering your own purpose."

Harvey Elliott, Chief Executive of Playstack said: “From the moment we first met Cold Symmetry we foresaw how Mortal Shell could achieve something quite extraordinary: capturing the hearts of one of the most impenetrable game audiences in the world. It’s common in publishing to claim that a game has exceeded expectations, but on every possible metric Mortal Shell has done this.
