How to get into the Mortal Shell Beta

Mortal Shell is a brand new Souls-like game from indie developer Cold Symmetry. While it’s not available for purchase just yet, there is a beta available that’ll let you get a feel for the game before its official release later this year. Wondering how to gain access to the beta? Here’s what you need to know!

On July 4, Cold Symmetry announced that the beta for Mortal Shell is now open and available to everyone on PC! To start playing, all you need to do is head over to the game’s official page on the Epic Games Store.

Once you’re on the page, hit the “Get” button and redeem the Mortal Shell beta for free. After that, install the game on your computer and you’re ready to start playing! Not quite sure what Mortal Shell is? Here’s a quick description from the game’s Epic Games Store page!

“Mortal Shell is a deep action-RPG that tests your sanity and resilience in a shattered world. Your adversaries spare no mercy, with survival demanding superior awareness and precision. Possess lost warriors, discover hidden sanctums, and face formidable foes.”

Note that the Mortal Shell beta is only available on PC through the Epic Games Store. According to Cold Symmetry, there’s no beta planned for consoles like Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at this time due to the deadlines they’re trying to meet and the resources available to them.

This makes sense given the fact that Cold Symmetry is an indie studio made up of just 15 people. They have a lot of work to do in order to get Mortal Shell ready for launch in the near future!

Mortal Shell is expected to release sometime in Q3 2020 for the Epic Games Store, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. If you fall in love with the game during the beta, you can pre-order Mortal Shell on the Epic Games Store for $29.99.

For PC gamers who prefer Steam over the Epic Games Store, you’ll be happy to hear that Mortal Shell is also getting a Steam release, though you’ll have to wait a little longer for it. Right now, Mortal Shell is listed as “Coming 2021” on Steam.
