Released during IGN’s Summer of Gaming event today, the latest gameplay footage of Cold Symmetry and Playstack’s Mortal Shell is here.
A challenging action RPG that takes cues from the Dark Souls series of games, this Mortal Shell trailer showcases a number of the title’s sprawling locales and sinister-looking enemies.
Players will also be able to take a first look at its combat mechanics, which is both strategic and deliberate in its design. In order to get ahead of the competition, players must calculate parries to unleash devastating counterblows, and can also temporarily turn your Mortal Shell into stone to block attacks. For those who would rather play on the offensive, this stone form can add weight to each of your deadly sword swings.
