Salem, A F2P Permadeath MMORPG Announced

Reporting from a Paradox Interactive press conference, a story on PC Gamer has details on Salem, a newly announced free-to-play MMORPG set in New England during the colonial era when suspected witches were used as firewood. They say the game is due sometime this year, and they make note of a fascinating aspect of the game's concept, permadeath: "The game puts emphasis on a player-driven world that promotes crafting skills. Even more interesting, when your character dies he’s gone forever, leaving all your creations to be pillaged by other players." A Salem video interview with Bjorn Johannessen explains how this works. The trailer also follows.

no shit - it needs to have a hardware element with electrodes wired directly into your pain receptors, so you can feel the harsh taste of every impact, cut, severance, etc.
