About the Game:
In Alterstone Kingdom, captured criminals face two choices for their punishment: death or service. Most opt for execution, but a brave few choose to live life in penance as Marked Inquisitors. These wandering wrongdoers hunt wicked Mages, devouring their hearts to prevent them from terrorizing the Kingdom any further.
Customize a Marked Inquisitor’s crime, look, and class. Choose from one of eight starting classes – Highblade, Paladin, Assassin, Cleric, Dualist, Fighter, Ranger, or Sage – then partake in the Magebane Rite. Imbibe the sacred drink, speak the words, and come away from the rite. Spellmarked, in a flux state between life and death. Free from mortal fears, the Inquisitors vow to spill the blood of Mages to put an end to their cruelty.
Prepare for each excursion at Pandoner’s Vale, a hub filled with friendly Inquisitors. Set out and roam eerie villages, tomb temples, and swamp kingdoms in single player or drop-in drop-out online co-op. Find clues and track down more than 20 types of Mages, including Pyromancers, toxic Venomancers, and abominable Corpumancers. Wield grappling hooks and pursue them, then slay them in brawler-style side scrolling combat.
Pillage the remains of Mages to craft new equipment with Runic Arts, granting Inquisitors unprecedented new abilities. Search every decrepit corner across multiple maps for powerful melee weapons, deadly ranged weapons, and protective armor and charms. Join multiplayer factions, including the cooperation-focused Dawnlight Order and the player-killing Shroud Alliance.
Salt and Sacrifice will be available for PS4, PS5, and PC for USD $19.99 Q1 in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese.
