After many requests by the community, it looks like Mortal Shell will receive a physical edition after all.
The news was shared on Twitter earlier,
“We’ve been stunned by the number of requests for a physical release of Mortal Shell. Today we’re delighted to answer those requests. Mortal Shell physical edition is coming October 2, shortly after the digital release on August 18.”
The official site provides additional information. It looks like the boxed version will actually arrive a little later than the digital version of the game. This is simply down to the time necessary for production of the physical edition.
Here’s how the releases break down per region. The digital edition will release on August 18 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One worldwide. The physical edition will release on October 2 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in Europe and North America only. The physical edition will also include a fold-out poster and softback artbook and will be priced at $29.99 (€34.99 / £29.99).
Do note, there is no disc in the PC physical edition. Instead, there’s a key which you can redeem on the Epic Games Store. IN case you missed it, here’s why Mortal Shell will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC.
