Fans of Ska Studios’ stupendous 2D Souls-like Salt and Sanctuary need to prepare to do a small cheer; the developer has actually revealed that a follow-up, Salt and Sacrifice, is concerning PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC early next year.Salt and Sacrifice, just like its predecessor, sports side-scrolling exploratory platforming and measured combat. This time, nevertheless, gamers, in the function of a Marked Inquisitor, can select from among 8 classes-Highblade, Paladin, Assassin, Cleric, Dualist, Fighter, Ranger, and Sage – as they battle their way through the world of Alterstone Kingdom.
“Track down over 20 types of Mages in deserted towns, dungeons, tomb-temples, and more,” describes Ska in its statement. “Ransack their remains to forge new weapons and armour with Runic Arts and end up being even more powerful for the battles ahead.”
Perhaps the greatest addition, though, is online co-op. This signs up with the regional co-op and solo play seen in Salt of Sanctuary, and lets 2 gamers resolve the whole project together. “Unlike Sanctuary, which only granted progress to the main gamer,” discusses Ska on the PlayStation Blog, “Salt and Sacrifice allows both players to share progress.”
You can get a taste of Salt and Sacrifice’s gameplay in the statement trailer above, and the game itself is arranged to release on PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC in “Q1” 2022.
