Enhanced Edition comes to PS5 March 4 – PlayStation.Blog
Hi everyone, I’m very excited to tell you all about Mortal Shell: Enhanced Edition coming to PlayStation 5 on March 4th. Myself and the rest of the team were overwhelmed by the positive response to Mortal Shell. Our fans have often asked us if there is an updated version of Mortal Shell available for PS5. I am excited to finally have the opportunity to tell you all about the next generation of the Enhanced Edition.
Before I do that, here’s a brand new Enhanced Edition trailer for you that shows what we’re bringing for the next generation.
From the moment we got our hands on the PS5, we’ve looked at its power and capabilities to find the best ways to bring Mortal Shell to a new generation. Whether you take your first steps in Fallgrim or return to face the most vicious and grotesque opponents, our goal is to step up the immersion and make everything feel more brutal than ever. That means smooth 60 fps gameplay (targeted), crisp 4K graphics (upscaled, with 4K compatible display), improved textures, and DualSense controller upgrades that give you a more physical connection to the game.
From mobs to brutal boss encounters at 60 FPS
As soon as we got Mortal Shell up and running on PS5, we immediately noticed how the 60 fps frame rate made a huge difference. Every dangerous swing of your sword seems so much more fluid now. Even the Ballistazooka – the heavy shoulder-mounted ranged weapon used to fire spears – reacts much faster when you point your reticle at your target.
Explore Mortal Shell with improved textures
It was incredibly important to us that the Enhanced Edition make the most of the advanced hardware on PS5. Our goal was clear: to give players a version of the game that really shows off the PS5’s performance. With a 4K resolution and improved textures, we’re very happy with the difference. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
The textures have been improved in every part of the game to make the game feel extra sharp. Water sparkles, armor shimmers and your tarnished seal shines in an elegant new 4K resolution.
Strategic battle with a DualSense controller touch
Mastering the weight and feel of each weapon and armor in Mortal Shell was crucial as we focused on developing the game. When we heard about the capabilities of the DualSense controller, we knew it would be a perfect fit for a next-gen version.
We can’t wait to hear the whispering sounds and heartbeat vibrations from your controller as you approach a new case, as well as the adaptive trigger feedback when your character takes that final punch and runs out of stamina. Fighting a Brigand Ranger for the first time? Get the edge in combat when you feel the tactile feedback from projectiles shooting past – and the added benefit when one of those projectiles hits you!
Mortal Shell: Enhanced Edition will be available March 4th as a free, next-generation upgrade for existing Mortal Shell players who have already purchased the game on PS4. For new players, this updated, next-gen version will keep its last-gen starting price of $ 29.99 (EUR 29.99 / £ 24.99).
