Paradox Interactive has finally let us know that they are ready to have players join in on the intrepid exploring of their free-to-play community driven MMORPG Salem: The Crafting MMO. The game, which challenges players to survive and settle in the new world of colonial North America, is now available during the Open Beta Worldwide.
Now I tried this game out a few months back and was quite surprised at how difficult it is. At the time there was not much of a walk-through, so when you entered the game you kind of had to figure things out on your own. There were a few people doing let’s plays on YouTube so that was the only way I could understand what was going on in Salem. The idea seems fun enough, a sandbox styled MMO that relies less on the traditional structure and instead presents players with a persistent community and the ability to shape their own experiences.
Interested players can download the game at the official Salem the game site.
