Salem is one of the freshest concepts weÂve seen come to the MMORPG this side of 2010. ItÂs also a study in contrasts Â Puritans meets the black arts, a familiar New England meets a fantastical past steeped in folklore and Native American influence, and a lighthearted style meets truly hardcore game concepts. Join Ten Ton Hammer for an early preview of Salem : Puritans, Permadeath, and Open PvP in a Fantastical New England.
Magic will likewise be in the game Â it wouldnÂt be Salem without witchcraft Â but Bjorn explained that magic wonÂt be overt, if no less creepy. ÂPlayers wonÂt be casting fireballs at each other,Â Bjorn noted. ÂItÂs impact will be far more subtle, like turning your neighborÂs cowÂs milk to blood.Â Such actions will undoubtedly have socio-economic impact.
