Following its announcement during Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest: Kickoff Live show last year, Salt and Sacrifice has been confirmed for a 10th May 2022 release on both PlayStation 5 and PS4. A new trailer and PlayStation Blog post accompany the reveal, with the former embedded above. The Souls-like follow-up has the traditional 2D campaign for you to progress through, upgrading your character and defeating bosses along the way. However, the sequel also brings back PvP battles.
That's the subject of the blog post from James Silva, one half of the Salt and Sacrifice development team. There are a range of new attacks to utilise and a grappling hook to get you out of a tight fit. It's all said to be an upgraded PvP experience, but you don't have to engage with it if you don't want to. In fact, Silva promises you won't have to.
In a press release, Silva then expands: "With Salt and Sacrifice, we wanted to create an experience taking everything players loved about Salt and Sanctuary and building upon it in meaningful ways. Whether you plan to face Mages alone, call on friends for co-op, or stalk through Altarstone Kingdom as a PvP invader, Salt and Sacrifice offers something for everyone, and we can’t wait to bring the game to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Epic Game Store on May 10!
