Is your PC ready for Mortal Shell? The game's system requirements are now live 

One of the highlights of this year's series of E3 replacement events has been Mortal Shell, Cold Symmetry's take on the Souls-like genre. Here, smooth animations and great visuals are merged with brutal gameplay, where players are expected to master several combat styles to achieve victory. 

Graphically, the game features smooth animations and excellent lighting effects. At this time it is unknown what resolution or framerate the game will target on consoles, or if the game will have upgraded PS5 and Xbox Series X versions later this year. 
On PC, Mortal Shell will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store, at least initially, and require a powerful PC to operate at the game's highest settings. Storage-wise, the game's developers recommend an SSD for game storage and 16GB of system memory. These requirements will become a lot more common as we enter the next generation of gaming. 

GPU-wise, Nvidia's GTX 970 and AMD's Radeon RX 290 are listed as this game's minimum required GPU, while the game recommends Nvidia's newer GTX 1070 and AMD's Radeon RX Vega 56. On top of that, this game's developers recommend AMD Ryzen 7 or Intel i7 series processors. 

While the game's inspirations are obvious, Mortal Shell is more than just a simple Dark Souls clone. As the name suggests, the game's mechanics are tied to the player's Mortal Shell, a lifeless spirit form which players can occupy to enable class features and other abilities. This means that players can assume multiple forms throughout the game and explore a wide range of potential fighting styles. 

In combat, players can be forced out of their Mortal Shell and into your character's original form. In this form, players are one hit away from death, a factor which will make players quickly jump back into their old shell (if possible) or retreat to occupy a new one. Players will only be able to re-occupy a shell a certain number of times, and the more time spent in a single shell will unlock upgrades.
