Citing “overwhelming demand,” the development team of upcoming action-RPG Mortal Shell has decided to turn its previously closed beta into an open one. The beta is now freely available on the Epic Games store. Previously available only to a select few, the beta includes “the outskirts of Fallgrim and the Abandoned Chamber,” whatever those are.

Mortal Shell is a clearly Dark Souls-inspired action-RPG that attracted attention earlier this year for its quite stunning visual design. The followup gameplay trailer kept us caring because it did show some fairly compelling material. The game itself has a focus on all kinds of dark fantasy terrors, talking about sanity-blasting horrors and resilience in the face of a broken world. “Your path is guarded by adversaries, devoted to inscrutable gods,” says the game description, “Behold creatures both pitiable and grotesque and muster your courage and face them down.” That honestly just kind of sounds like opening social media.
