Salt and Sacrifice comes to Nintendo Switch and Steam on November 7
Ska Studios and Devoured Studios announced that souls-like action RPG platformer Salt and Sacrifice is coming out on November 7 for the Nintendo Switch and Steam. It was previously released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Epic Games Store on May 10, 2022. Salt and Sacrifice is the follow-up to Ska Studios's Salt and Sanctuary that initially released back in 2016.
A new free update for the title, "The Traitor's Tomb", is launching alongside the Switch and Steam release. The update adds a new dungeon that contains new bosses, NPCs, and secrets for players to discover. The update will also be released on all the previous platforms it was released on, too.
Salt and Sanctuary will be priced at $19.99 USD on Switch and Steam. It has already been marked as Steam Deck Verified for those that want to play the title on a Steam Deck. Check out the release trailer for the new platforms and more additional information down below.
Salt and Sacrifice, the follow-up to the million-plus selling soulslike platformer Salt and Sanctuary from Ska Studios and Devoured Studios, rises to hunt Corrupted Mages on Steam for Windows PC (Deck playable with Verification planned for launch) and Nintendo Switch Wednesday, November 7, 2023. A free update, “The Traitor’s Tomb,” will also launch on November 7, available to all Salt and Sacrifice owners on PlayStation 5|4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
As Corrupted Mages prowl Altarstone Kingdom and terrorize the realm with horrifying displays of elemental abilities, a collection of conscripted fighters become unlikely champions. Marked Inquisitors, forsaken and condemned souls tasked with hunting Mages as a means of penance, must take up the hunt to both purify the Kingdom and seek redemption.
Select from one of eight character classes, creating a build to suit any and all combat styles. Swing imposing greatswords, roll through enemies before unleashing a flurry of dual-bladed strikes, or sling sorcery while scouring the land for clues leading toward fearsome foes and their wicked magic. Defeat Corrupted Mages and crush their hearts to claim otherworldly flesh and bones to craft into new weapons and armor sets.
Fight through Altarstone Kingdom alone or call upon another Marked Inquisitor for cooperative hunting, with new cross-play support added alongside the upcoming launch. Join myriad factions suited to both PvE and PvP engagements, like the Shroud Alliance, a group dedicated to invading other Inquisitors and assassinating them for ill-gotten gains. Explore an interconnected and detailed world full of deadly enemies and hidden secrets either alone or in multiplayer for a challenging action RPG experience.
Dive deeper into the world of Salt and Sacrifice with “The Traitor’s Tomb,” a free update also launching on November 7. Descend into The Heart of Altarstone, a winding dungeon that increases the base game’s map size by 20%. Seek out the truth behind the Marked Inquisition’s long-buried secrets.
Encounter intriguing NPCs, overcome trials against five new bosses, and collect a wealth of additional armor sets and weapons, like the massive Lawbringer whip-sword. The free update also introduces a new arena mode, allowing daring Inquisitors to test their mettle in 6-player free-for-all PvP matches.
“Since first launching Salt and Sacrifice in 2022, we’ve been hard at work getting the game ready for Steam and Nintendo Switch and preparing “The Traitor’s Tomb” update as a thank you to all of the players who’ve journeyed into Altarstone Kingdom,” said James Silva, founder, Ska Studios. “With the upcoming Steam and Nintendo Switch launch, as well as the free update for all players, we hope that even more Marked Inquisitors heed the call of battle on Wednesday, November 7!”
Salt and Sacrifice will launch on Nintendo Switch and Steam (Deck Verified) on Wednesday, November 7, 2023, for USD $19.99. The game is also available on PlayStation 5|4 and Epic Games Store in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified) and Japanese.
