Developers Ska Studios and Devoured Studios have announced that. The game will be released sometime in the first quarter of 2022, including on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
The sequel to Salt and Sanctuary is yet another soul-like platformer. In the game, criminals in the Alterstone Kingdom are given two choices for their punishment: the death penalty or being employed by the government. Some choose the latter. As Marked Inquisitors, they must hunt for wizards.
Players can choose from eight different classes – Highblade, Paladin, Assassin, Cleric, Dualist, Fighter, Ranger or Sage – and participate in the Magebane Rite. This ritual makes one Spellmarked, putting one in a sort of state between life and death.
In the game, players explore sinister villages, tombs and swamps. There are twenty different types of wizards to hunt and players have grappling hooks to move quickly. In addition, one can create new weapons and tools with Runic Arts. The game can be played alone or via drop-in drop-out co-op.
