Salt and sacrifice
- The next installment of the soul-like platformer, Salt and Sacrifice, received a new trailer during the Future Games Show with a PvP trailer.
- The trailer showed Alterstone Kingdom, a place where “criminals serve as marked inquisitors” according to the press release. They face an endless cycle of hunting mages in order to “cleanse the corrupted land”. But the Marked Inquisitors also face another threat which is the invasion of other players.
- Players will be able to engage in PvP battles and join multiplayer factions like Shroud Alliance and Blue Heart Runners to call on allies for dynamic encounters.
- For those who are not interested in PvP, they can avoid these kinds of threats from otherworldly invaders by not summoning an ally. If you want to cooperate with a friend and explore together, you can use a password system to allow those you want to join your world.
