Mortal Shell is a gorgeous action RPG that wants you to compare it to Dark Souls. Earlier this week developer Cold Symmetry debuted the first gameplay footage and talked explicitly about its Souls series influences (Quake got a nod, too!). But at this year’s PC Gaming Show, we got a closer look at one of the titular shells, or character classes, you’ll have the chance to possess—watch that trailer above.
In Mortal Shell combat is strategic and deliberate. You must commit your sword only when an opportunity opens. Calculate your parries to unleash devastating counterblows. Temporarily entomb your Mortal Shell in stone to block attacks, or play aggressive and use your stone-form to add brutal weight to your own sword swings.
Title: Mortal Shell
Genre: Action, RPG
Developer: Cold Symmetry
