Imagine an MMO in which your character could permanently die, never to be seen again except in fevered dreams. Welcome to Salem.
Permanent death is the major talking point regarding Salem, an upcoming, free-to-play MMO from Paradox Interactive. Set within New England, players will take on the roles of colonists seeking to make a new life for themselves in the new world. With a unique farming, crafting and building system, and the risks presented by creatures such as Squonks, Hidebehinds and even Witches, players will be given control of their towns in a new twist on the MMO formula. Features include:
- Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game
- Persistent and mutable world
- Crafting, farming and building
- Open PvP combat with permanent death
“Salem is a free-to-play MMO game that is going to add something new to the genre with the concept of generations rather than just a single character through the game,â€ said Tom SÃ¶derlund, Project Lead for Paradox Connect. â€œIf your character is killed in the game, and believe me it can be dangerous in Salem, their descendent has the ability to pick up where your character left off. The concept of revenge and towns policing themselves and even sanctioning hits on griefers is going to be a really compelling aspect. We know weâ€™ll see some interesting things when the community finally has a chance to play Salem later this year.â€
