'Mortal Shell' (ALL) Retail Edition Delayed A Few Weeks

by Rainier on Sept. 25, 2020 @ 2:11 p.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.

Due to unprecedented challenges in the global distribution environment, the release date for the Mortal Shell physical edition has been delayed, its publisher Playstack announced today.

Originally scheduled for a simultaneous global release on October 2nd, it will now ship across several dates in different territories beginning October 23rd.

US:

  • PS4 and Xbox One: Nov 3

Europe

  • PS4 and PC: Oct 23
  • Xbox One: Oct 30

“We sincerely apologise to our fans all over the world who have been eagerly waiting for the physical release. Our number one priority is to get Mortal Shell in your hands as soon as possible, therefore we have decided to release each edition of the game the very moment it becomes available. That in turn means a slightly scattered release. We would like to thank the amazing Mortal Shell community for its support and patience,”said Playstack CEO, Harvey Elliott.

Mortal Shell’s physical edition will feature an exclusive fold-out poster and softback artbook, featuring never-before-seen concept images and character art. Priced at $29.99 (€34.99 / £29.99), this physical edition can be purchased at major participating retailers.
