At this week’s gamescom event, Paradox Entertainment revealed a few new details during a press conference about the game’s economic system.
“The economy will be based around a store owned by the "game" that players can trade and purchase items from, " explained Björn Johannessen, Creative Director. "When trading you'll receive silver based on the value of the resource traded. With this silver you can then buy inaccessible resources or ones you don't want to spend time gathering. The store will also offer the option to buy silver with real world currency. It's key for us that all items will be purchasable with the in-game silver only, so all players, whether playing for free or not, can buy any item for sale ."
In addition to the new details, the crew served up a new ominous trailer. Check it out after the break.
Salem is scheduled to release in Q2, 2012.
