A dark return full of soul, Mortal Shell heads to next-gen consoles next month

Today, Cold Symmetry and PlayStack announced that its fast-paced action game Mortal Shell will head to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X on March 4. The new version will be available as a free upgrade for those who purchased current generation versions of the game, and will take advantage of the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller for the PS5 version, with 4k/60 FPS performance for both consoles.

Following its triumphant worldwide release in August, Mortal Shell — the dark, unrelenting and multiple award-winning action RPG — is ready to possess the next generation of consoles. Developer Cold Symmetry and publisher Playstack are today thrilled to announce that Mortal Shell: Enhanced Edition, a fully remastered version of the game, will be coming digitally to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on March 4.

Mortal Shell: Enhanced Edition provides a superior spectacle of the game’s haunting beauty, with rich, meticulous details never seen before on consoles. Along with gorgeous upgraded textures and razor-sharp 4K resolution, it will deliver an uncompromised 60 frames-per-second gameplay on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

This remaster has been calibrated to take full advantage of the PS5 DualSense controller’s suite of immersive technologies. From the whispering sounds and heartbeat vibrations that resonate from your controller as you approach a new Shell, to the impact you feel in the palm of your hands as you utilize the harden mechanics, this enhanced edition gives PS5 owners a rich physical connection to the game’s dangerous and ruthless world like never before.

Mortal Shell: Enhanced Edition will be available on March 4 as a completely free next-gen upgrade for existing Mortal Shell customers who already bought the game on PS4 or Xbox One. For new customers, this remastered next-generation version will keep to its last-gen launch MSRP of $29.99 (€29.99 / £24.99).

Meanwhile, following the outstanding demand for physical collector’s editions of Mortal Shell, a special limited run is underway. Mortal Shell: Enhanced Edition – Deluxe Set comes with a 140-page artbook showcasing never-before-seen concept art and illustrations created during the game’s development, as well as an exclusive reversible cover and art postcards. The Deluxe Collection’s MSRP is $39.99 (€39.99 / £34.99) and will be available at all major participating retailers this spring across North America and Europe (a standard physical edition will also be available).
