Mortal Shell: The Virtuous Cycle, the expansion for sleeper hit Mortal Shell has confirmed it’s release date as August 18th with a new trailer.
The Virtuous Cycle expansion will add a roguelike mode that will shuffle the world to make sure no two playthroughs are the same, as well as adding new abilities, a new shell and a new weapon into the mix.
- Randomisation of enemy encounters
- Hadern shell and new skill tree
- Axetana – a new weapon, capable of shifting between an axe and a pair of katanas
- More than 100 new abilities, adding tons of play style options and enhancing replayability
This looks like an astute move from Cold Symmetry, capitalising on the continuing popularity of roguelike games and giving players a chance to experience Mortal Shell in different ways, whilst adding additional content.
Looks like it’s time to revisit the game, as I admit I did get stuck on the last boss and never went back. Better brush the cobwebs off of my Hallowed sword and journey once again into Fallgrim.
Mortal Shell: The Virtuous Cycle will be available 18th August for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG.com, costing £6.99.
