Revealed at this year’s E3, we’ll be getting Mortal Shell‘s “The Virtuous Cycle” DLC later this month! Developer Cold Symmetry have announced that the DLC will arrive August 18th, and will also be coinciding with Mortal Shell’s debut on Steam.
The Virtuous Cycle “reinvents your journey through Fallgrim and beyond as adversaries cycle and shuffle upon each death.” New in the DLC are pillars that will bestow over 100 new talents for you to inherit, allowing you to create and develop your combat style as you see fit.
The DLC also grants players command over Hadern, once your elusive teacher, now yours to master as the fifth possessable Shell. Playable within both Mortal Shell’s main campaign and The Virtuous Cycle, Hadern’s unique skill tree unlocks a a wealth of new talents, from dagger mastery to an ability to absorb damage.
Also be on the lookout for Axatana, Fallgrim’s most venerable weapon. In your hands, Axatana will either assemble itself into a supreme heavy axe, or split into lightning-fast dual katanas. Both stances come with their own unique movesets.
In addition to Steam, The Virtuous Cycle will arrive on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store for $7.99 USD.
