Publisher Playstack and developer Cold Symmetry have announced today that action-RPG Mortal Shell will arrive on Xbox One later this month on August 18th (via Gematsu).

"Awakening as an empty vessel, you will enter into a shattered and twisted world where the remains of humanity wither and rot," says the game's description. "Implored to do the bidding of the mysterious 'Dark Father,' you must traverse this tattered landscape and track down hidden sanctums of devout followers."

Mortal Shell will feature a non-linear campaign with deep upgrade paths and "haunting" foes. The game enjoyed a very successful beta on PC last month, acquiring over 350,000 players.

Mortal Shell is a deep action-RPG that tests your sanity and resilience in a shattered world. As the remains of humanity wither and rot, zealous foes fester in the ruins. They spare no mercy, with survival demanding superior awareness, precision and instincts. Track down hidden sanctums of devout followers and discover your true purpose.
