And yes: Mortal Shell beta access is coming, the best place to gain access is the Mortal Shell discord, which is here: We’ve played the demo through and spent two hours getting to grips with two of the mortal shells, Harros and Tiel, for this Mortal Shell preview. We talk you through Mortal Shell combat, and it’s unique harden ability, and how the two characters handle differently. The most pleasant surprise putting together these Mortal Shell impressions was how each character brought something new to the mix.
These are hands-on impressions, but only of the early area of the game, and a modified version of it at that. It’s not a full Mortal Shell review, just a preview, but we really enjoyed what we played of it. Matthew thinks it looks particularly shiny – this is Mortal Shell gameplay (PC) – but hope it doesn’t look too dark and dank in the video. Cold Symmetry have created a striking world with some great monster design – we were particularly proud to be able to take down the first Mortal Shell boss fight.
So, what is your Mortal Shell reaction? Will this scratch the itch while waiting for Elden Ring? Let us know in the comments.
