If this is your first time hearing about Embers of Mirrim, here is a brief description of the game and its features:
An ancient power forges together two distinctly different creatures into one versatile hero charged with restoring peace and balance to the world.

Infusing these moments with “splitting” gameplay and a powerful narrative offers more than the sum of its parts.
