The Souls-like sub-genre of video games, spearheaded by From Software's Dark Souls, has become a trend in and of itself lately. Several games have adopted familiar mechanics from From Software's dark fantasy RPG classic, paving the way for surprise hits like Team Ninja's Nioh series. Mortal Shell, released last year from indie developer Cold Symmetry, took the Souls-like formula and delivered a dark fantasy setting that honors the sub-genre. Now, a year later, the game is receiving its first major DLC in the form of The Virtuous Cycle.

The Virtuous Cycle is a new expansion to Mortal Shell, introducing a new Shell - which is essentially a suit of armor that gifts players specific abilities and playstyles. Players will also get a brand new transforming weapon. "Scattered across the land are pillars that will bestow new talents for you to inherit. With more than 100 new abilities to discover and combine together - from exotic weapon enhancements to entirely new combat maneuvers - players are free to create and develop their very own combat style," reads the description.
