Salem: More About Perma(Kinda)death

Paradox Interactive has revealed a few more details about permadeath in its recently announced MMO, Salem. While it's true that characters that die in the world can never be resurrected, players will have the option to create a "descendant" to take up where the recently deceased left off.

"Salem is a free-to-play MMO game that is going to add something new to the genre with the concept of generations rather than just a single character through the game,” said Tom Söderlund, Project Lead for Paradox Connect. “If your character is killed in the game, and believe me it can be dangerous in Salem, their descendent has the ability to pick up where your character left off. The concept of revenge and towns policing themselves and even sanctioning hits on griefers is going to be a really compelling aspect. We know we’ll see some interesting things when the community finally has a chance to play Salem later this year.”
