There are a lot of folks excited about the upcoming Souls-like Mortal Shell. Its beta was downloaded by 350,000, and the excitement over its recently revealed launch date is palpable. So much so, in fact, that due to popular demand the game is getting a physical launch, developer Cold Symmetry announced today.
A new post over on the game’s official website explains:
“We’ve been stunned by the sheer amount of people who have asked for a physical edition of Mortal Shell. so we’re delighted to reveal that a boxed version of Mortal Shell is now in production!”
As you’d expect, production of the physical copies this close to launch means that they won’t arrive in tandem with the digital edition, which releases roughly two weeks earlier.
Here’s the breakdown:
- Digital edition: Aug. 18 (PC, PS4, Xbox One – Worldwide)
- Physical edition: Ot. 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One – Europe and North America only)
Mortal shell’s physical edition comes with an exclusive fold-out poster and softback artbook, featuring never-before-seen concept images and character art. priced at $29.99 (€34.99 / £29.99), this boxed edition can be purchased at major participating retailers.
