Salt and Sanctuary Release Date Revealed

Salt and Sanctuary Release Date Revealed

Last updated on April 14th, 2016

Praise the 2D Sun! The much anticipated Salt and Sanctuary from Ska Studios will release March 15th on PS4! The PC version is due to release sometime this summer with the Vita version also in development for a future release. The game will drop on the Playstation Store for the super reasonable price of 17.99 USD, with pre-orders receiving a 10% discount, bringing the price down to 16.19 USD.  It will also be crossbuy, so PS4 owners can play the Vita version as soon as it releases! This 2D conceptualization of the Soulslike genre is the perfect thing for fans of the Soulsborne games to sink their teeth into, especially while they wait for Dark Souls 3!

A doomed sailor is shipwrecked on an uncharted island. In fog-shrouded valleys, where grinning, mossy corpses cling to rusted arms, shambling figures begin to stir. Beneath crumbling, salt-worn structures, labyrinthine passageways lead to unspeakable evil, long forgotten by man.

The 2D hardcore action RPG features over 600 unique items and will be immediately appealing to players who love extensive character building, deep, stylized combat, rewarding exploration and challenging enemies as well as some awesome hand drawn artwork and environments. Initially developed as a single player experience, the game will now feature local Co-op and PvP for you and your favorite couch partner/adversary. Check out our livestream from last night with Ska Studios to get an idea of the goodness to expect:

It’s an exciting time to be a fan of the genre and we can’t wait to play this!

To the Fextralife community members who helped with translations, your names will be added to the credits as soon as the team is able to deploy their first patch, your help was greatly appreciated!

    I was planning on trying to Plat SotFS before DSIII releases. Looks like my timetable just shifted a little.

    Me too. I’m renting it off gamefly now, should be at my house in a few days.

    To hell with that. I’m going to play Salt and Sanctuary right away. It’s my DKS3 anticipation buster and potential insurance policy.

    Sorry, I just edited my post. I meant to say "Plat." I only need the spell collection trophies but I’m not quite finished with a first run (still need to beat Dark Lurker and retrieve spells from two DLC areas).

  15. Avatar PhDChaos says:

    Yes! YEEESSSS!!! Take my money. Oh god, I’ve been waiting for this game. I’m feeling the love this morning. Woohoo!

  16. Avatar ManatuBear says:

    Since Bloodborne there has been no release that interested me and now there are 3 in the same month… this is so unfair!

    Salt and Sanctuary on the 15th
    Day of the Tentacle Remaster on the 22nd
    Dark Souls 3 on the 23rd

    I guess DoTT Remaster will have to wait for the Dks3/S&S hype to run out…
