Playable in both mortal ShellIn Hadern’s main campaign and The Virtuous Cycle, Hadern’s unique skill tree unlocks a new realm of innate talents, from dagger mastery to an intimidating ability to absorb punishment.
Also unearthed in the expansion is the Axatana, Fallgrim’s most venerable weapon. In your hands, the Axatana flexes at will, assembles itself into a supreme heavy ax when the moment calls, and detaches into lightning-fast double katanas when you wish. You can unlock unique movesets for both modes.
Mortal Shell originally launched in August 2020. Kai rated the game a 7.7 out of 10:
More in line with From Software’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice than a traditional Soulslike, Mortal Shell offers a short and sweet take on the hardcore action RPG formula by focusing the player to get tougher and push the offensive to create the perfect defense to create.
