Mortal Shell – Best Graphics Settings

If you like the Dark Souls series then you will most probably like Mortal Shell too. Mortal Shell is a action-RPG that follows the footsteps of Dark Souls. Your path is guarded by enemies that are very difficult to beat. You must dodge, parry and do everything you can in order to survive and move forward.

Since Mortal Shell has some decent selection of settings to tweak. We decided to fiddle with them in order to figure out the perfect combination of settings that would help players, especially those who own low-end rigs.

The developers of Mortal Shell might call it an Indie title but it looks nothing like one. It has AAA feel to it. Since Dark Souls games are deeply loved by people, I can imagine Mortal Shell being quite a popular game. Now, not all of them are sitting with a high-end rig. That is the reason why we tested the game on a very basic and mediocre gaming PC.

It is always recommended to run a game on a medium end gaming rig if you want to find out the best combination of graphics settings for the game. There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards. Because lets be honest, every single game will run smoothly on a RTX 2080 ti or a RX 5800 XT.

Benchmark Results

Minimum FPS Maximum FPS Average FPS
48 FPS 78 FPS 58 FPS

Since Mortal Shell does not have any option to run Benchmark tests, we used Fraps and we ran the test for 60 seconds.
