What is Salt and Sacrifice?
Salt and Sacrifice is a 2D action platformer with precise, technical combat and a strong narrative. Salt and Sacrifice is the sequel to the popular title, Salt and Sanctuary. Salt and Sacrifice expands on the realm of Salt and Sanctuary, where players will get to discover a new period of time, a new world, as well as taking on a new responsibility. Specifically, as a Marked Inquisitor.
What is a Marked Inquisitor? He/She is known to be a condemned criminal who was spared by the hand of justice with the condition of serving in the unending war against Mages: twisted, hopeless creatures of elemental malice for a lifetime. In other words, you are tasked with hunting down large threats such as the Mages that roam the world.
Developer and Publisher Ska Studios introduces a familiar yet refreshing take to the sequel by adding new mechanics, additional game features such as a Co-Op mode for both local and online play, imrpovements to certain aspects of the game such as inventory management, combat, characters, and many more.
Will there be Classes?
Yes, in a written article during one of Ska Studios' interviews, they have mentioned 8 starting Classes that features the Highblade, Paladin, Assassin, Cleric, Dualist, Fighter, Ranger, or Sage. It also looks to it that these classes only indicated a set of equipment such as Weapons, Armor, Accessories, and Items, as well as Skills that you will be starting with when you start the game and after Character Creation. As you progress, it is still up to you on how you mold your character by creating your own build that features a set of equipment, skills, and stats. Or by improving your character's stats.
What is the Story About?
Salt and Sacrifice expands the world of the first game, Salt and Sanctuary. In Salt and Sacrifece, you play as a Marked Inquisitor who is tasked for a lifetime to kill Mages who roam the world and pose a threat to society. Salt and Sacrifice is set in a new period and new setting, within a kingdom known to be Alterstone.
Here, you will need to prepare for each excursion at Pardoner’s Vale, a hub filled with friendly Inquisitors. Set out and roam eerie villages, tomb temples, and swamp kingdoms, to pillage the remains of Mages to craft new equipment with Runic Arts, granting Inquisitors unprecedented new abilities, as well as to search every decrepit corner across multiple maps for powerful melee weapons, deadly ranged weapons, and protective armor and charms.
Is there Co-Op?
Yes, Salt and Sacrifice reveled in the announcement trailer that there is a co-op feature that allows you to invite and play with a friend online or via local play. Apart from that, Ska Studios showcased as well in a written article during one of their interviews that they have added a Summoning feature where players can use a summon item to call and ask for aid from random players who are online. If Salt and Sacrifice follows a similar feature to games like Dark Souls or Demon's Souls, it is possible that summoned players can either assist the player or turn against them and kill them.
