Paradox Interactive and Seatribe announced the opening of Beta sign-ups for upcoming Massively Multiplayer Online game, Salem. Developed by Seatribe, Salem is set in the New World when pilgrims were the norm and the frontier was still the greatest risk to a person’s health.

Salem is a unique core gaming experience for MMO players and crafting enthusiasts, known best for its Permadeath mechanic where in-game characters succumb to the harsh wilderness environment. Although Salem takes place in a light-hearted gothic setting with a charming and cute art-style, there is also open Player-versus-Player combat.

Salem is a free-to-play MMORPG and scheduled to release in Q3, 2012. Sign up for the closed Beta here:
