Mortal Shell screenshot 2

Here are 40 minutes of gameplay footage from the Dark Souls-inspired action RPG, Mortal Shell

The preview embargo for Mortal Shell has been lifted, and a number of gameplay videos have surfaced online. Thus, we’ve decided to share a video that shows 40 minutes of gameplay footage from this upcoming Dark Souls-inspired action RPG.

The following video gives us a glimpse at the game’s weapons, shells and bosses. It also packs some fighting sequences, so be sure to watch it.

The combat in Mortal Shell promises to be strategic and deliberate. Players must commit their sword only when an opportunity opens. Players will also have to calculate their parries to unleash devastating counterblows. Furthermore, they will be able to temporarily entomb their Mortal Shell in stone to block attacks, or play aggressive and use their stone-form to add brutal weight to their own sword swings.

As we’ve already reported, Mortal Shell will be timed-exclusive on the Epic Games Store. You can also find the game’s PC system requirements here.
