The dark action-RPG Mortal Shell will be published physically two months after the digital version. Mortal Shell releases digitally worldwide on August 18 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store, while the boxed version is set to launch across Europe and North America on October 2.
“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.”
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, the physical edition can be purchased at major participating retailers, with store pages going live shortly. The PC edition of the physical version does not carry a disc and will instead include a key that can be redeemed on the Epic Games Store.
Last week’s announcement of Mortal Shell’s digital release followed the outstanding response to its Beta, which was downloaded by more than 350,000 players in one week and surpassed more than six million views across Twitch and YouTube.
Mortal Shell will launch on August 18 on the Epic Games Store, PS4, and Xbox One. The PC version comes to the Epic Games Store as a timed-exclusive. A Steam version will release later in 2021.
