‘Salt and Sanctuary’ gameplay early details

Developer Ska Studios posted new gameplay footage, which is ten minutes in duration. And it’s an in-game clip that is currently still in development.

The gameplay shows armored warriors sliding, smashing, and wall-jumping as well. The setting involves spooky, ghostly warriors and giant glowing wizards. During the clip, they also throw fire.

In the sequel, players will find themselves in a 2D, side-scrolling environment. You can choose one of these eight classes: Highblade, Paladin, Assassin, Cleric, Dualist, Fighter, Ranger, or Sage.

However, the latest gameplay clip doesn’t give any look at the new skill tree.

Salt and Sanctuary will support single-player and drop-in. Along with that, it will also include drop-out multiplayer and multiplayer factions. The latter will feature co-op-based Dawnlight Order and player-killing Shroud Alliance.

Players also had the option of wielding two weapons for additional power and shields to defend.

The game had RPG concepts like origins, classes, and stat development. And of course, there was a skill tree as well, providing tons of combinations.
