MORTAL SHELL: THE VIRTUOUS CYCLE DLC Release Date and Trailer
Mortal Shell is getting an excellent new DLC that’ll change it into a new Rogue-lite experience. It is called Mortal Shell: The Virtuous Cycle, this new bit of content will send players back to Fallgrim once more on an ever-changing journey.
When you die, the game will reset, but nothing will be the same as before. The game reshuffles its chances of enemies to keep you on your toes and let you keep guessing. Knowing Mortal Shell’s hard combat, this won’t be an easy ride. The DLC also guarantees more than 100 new abilities to find and connect through exotic weapon improvements and new combat maneuvers.
The Virtuous Cycle will also let players take control over Hadern, once your elusive teacher, they’re now yours to possess as the new fifth shell. Hadern will also be able to be used in the regular version of Mortal Shell as well so there’s another incentive to invest in the content. The character offers their own unique skill tree and a new domain of innate talents.
“Designing and developing The Virtuous Cycle DLC has been a blast,” said Francesco Zacchini, Technical Designer at developer Cold Symmetry. “We have crammed in over 100 new abilities alongside new lore, the transforming Axatana weapon, and Hadern as a playable shell. I can’t wait to see all the ways players are going to break the roguelike mode that we created. I think they’re going to have a lot of fun with that.“
Mortal Shell: The Virtuous Cycle DLC costs $7.99 and will release on August 18th for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG.
