Salt and Sanctuary originally launched on March 15th of this year on PlayStation 4 as a part of PlayStation’s Launch Party program. As part of that program, Salt and Sanctuary was discounted by 10% if you preordered the game. Well, now the game is on Steam, where you can currently grab it for 10% off it's $17.99 price tag, bringing the price down to about 16 dollars for the next week.
Just last week, the two-man team over at Ska Studios announced that they would be porting Salt and Sanctuary over to PC, but they also stated that they did not currently have a release date for the port and that they would be providing us with more info sometime this month. Well, the game is here, without any prior release date announcement. Today, the game was just on Steam, and the Steam page even still says “we can't say a specific date just yet but very soon, Salt and Sanctuary will be coming to Steam.” The game page on their website isn't updated yet, although their blog does have a very short post on the release. You can pick up the game on Steam here.
Salt and Sanctuary was met with great critical reception, currently holding a score of 85 on Metacritic and was compared mostly to the Dark Souls series. The game appears to have sold well as Ska Studios also announced last week that the game will be receiving a limited physical release for PlayStation 4, and they are also working to bring the game in countries across Asia. However, there is still no word on the PlayStation Vita port at the moment.
This whole situation is pretty strange, but not really in a bad way. One day the game is coming to Steam sometime in the future, the next day it just shows up. It’s also nice to see that you can grab the game at a discount right off the bat, too. Let us know what you think about the surprise PC port in the comment section below!
