The sequel to the massively popular Salt and Sanctuary, which has sold over a million copies, is on PlayStation and PC right now! This 2D soulslike comes from Ska Studios and Devoured Studios. An official description of the game reads; ‘Become a Marked Inquisitor, a condemned soul tasked with hunting fearsome corrupted Mages as the ultimate act of penance for past crimes. Enter Altarstone Kingdom and see firsthand how Mage-controlled displays of elemental magic have choked the life out of a once-mighty land. Shape the fate of the forsaken Kingdom as one of eight character classes, and take up arms to hunt Mages, purify the land, and earn a chance at redemption once and for all.’
You set out from Pardoner’s Vale, where hunters all make their names. You may master the tools of a set of different classes and fight through areas full of challenging foes, rare materials and a host of new armaments. Earn Salt from defeated enemies to upgrade your stats and spend black starstones to unlock skill tree upgrades to make your way in this dark kingdom.
As well as this is a multiplayer element, which is described as such; ‘Embrace fate as a Marked Inquitor and engage in online multiplayer for cooperative Mage hunts or devious PvP invasions. Invite friendly faces to the Pardoner’s Vale Cooperation Board using a password system or summon random partners to the hunt using a Golden Candle. Join factions for expanded multiplayer options, like the Shroud Alliance, whose agents use the mysterious Page of Curses to invade the world of other Inquisitors for PvP fights, and the Oathbound Watchers, an outfit dedicated to aiding those invaded by other players.’
“Salt and Sacrifice builds upon the foundation that made Salt and Sanctuary a fan-favorite soulslike,” said James Silva, founder, Ska Studios. “As a game largely developed by two people, we’ve worked tirelessly to build an experience that offers meaningful combat, exciting multiplayer options, and more. We can’t wait to see you all in Altarstone Kingdom!”
