Salt and Sanctuary headed to PC

The 2D Souls-like has a page on Steam, bearing a release date of 'Soon 2016.'


Wrap up your eighth trek through Dark Souls 3's kingdom of Lothric, then trade in your souls for salts and shimmy into the second dimension when Salt and Sanctuary arrives on PC later this year.

"As you may know, we launched Salt and Sanctuary on PS4 March 15th," developer Ska Studios wrote on the game's Steam page. "We can't say a specific date just yet but very soon, Salt and Sanctuary will be coming to Steam."

Salt and Sanctuary has been turning heads since before it sliced and diced its way onto PS4 earlier this year. The game takes place on an island shrouded by fog, and puts a nifty spin on many of Dark Souls' abilities, but on a 2D plane. Players can roll behind enemies by tumbling through their legs, and the combat is intricate in its own right, with over 600 weapons and lots of spells to choose from.
