Traitors in Salem is launching on Steam Early Access Beta this Friday, April 22. If the title sounds familiar, that’s because it serves as the follow-up to the social deduction game Town of Salem. The game is being developed by BlankMediaGames, which should come as good news to fans of the original game.

For those who played the original game, the town was in a conflict that had lasted almost a decade and resulted in countless souls being lost. The innocents of the town later banded together and were able to banish the Necronomicon. As a result, the power that the book held over the minds of the townsfolk was erased. While the darkness was indeed sealed, it wasn’t possible to do it forever so once again dark magic is threatening Salem.

The game allows for a maximum of 15 players to go online and use their wits and abilities to find out who the Traitors are, while those on the other side get to unleash their inner evil. Every player gets a role with each one having unique abilities.

For the town members, there are two ways to win which are to deal with all the traitors or finish all the quests to banish the Necronomicon again. For the traitors, they need to protect the Necronomicon at all costs. They can kill town members or convert them to their side.
