Paradox Interactive have announced that the open beta for their upcoming MMO Salem has begun.
In Salem, players take on the role of colonists populating The New World. You can craft items, and more notably, engage in perma-death based PvP combat with one another. You read that right…in Salem, dying means losing your character completely.
The developers have adopted a minimal-constraint approach to the game’s community, allowing them to do pretty much anything they want beyond the confines of the one developer-built settlement. Over the course of the closed beta, the developers said that a full-fledged barter-based economy has developed alongside gang rivalries and vigilante justice. Needless to say, they’re pretty excited to see what players will make of the open beta.
Head on over to the official site to participate in the open beta for this innovative MMO.
