Salem is a free-to-play, sandbox crafting MMORPG from Seatribe and Paradox Interactive. Set in a fantastical New England, the game allows players to take the role of colonists and build their homesteads in the wilderness with unique crafting, farming, and building systems. Salem features a cute, gothic art style that offsets its hardcore permadeath rules and open PvP combat.

  • Persistent World | Find a spot for your homestead in the wilderness of Salem's open, persistent and changeable world.
  • Deep Crafting | Engage in Salem's deep crafting, farming, and building systems to create your own homestead.
  • Open PvP and Permadeath | Make friends in the wilderness to increase your strength in numbers, or engage in open PvP with Salem's permadeath ruleset, but beware that other players can track you down!

Character Wipe & Server Reset Announced

Character Wipe & Server Reset Announced - Salem News

Salem players have been informed by the development team that, in preparation for a large update, all characters will be wiped and that servers will be completely reset. Because of extensive reworking of several in-game functions, the team felt this was the better option. Players will not lose purchased items or items gained by preordering Salem. The wipe is expected to take place approximately two weeks from now.
