Mortal Shell is an upcoming Dark Souls clone that's coming to Xbox One and PC soon. In Windows Central's preview, Jordan Palmer wrote, "Frankly, if you wanted a harder version of From Software's classic, Mortal Shell is for you. It captures what made Dark Souls' difficulty so endearing: once you overcome that obstacle that's had you stuck for a while, you get this intense feeling of euphoria and satisfaction. Mortal Shell did an excellent job at this in the bit I played, and I can't wait for the full release to really punish myself."

Many Xbox One X owners have been wondering if the title features Xbox One X enhancements. The answer to that question is a resounding yes.

The resolution doesn't appear to be 4K, but it may be around 1440p or 1800p.
