Patch 2.0.2 - Ranked Legacy Season Over

Hey Townies!

We are releasing patch 2.0.2. This patch will be adding a few things with it, and will have a lot of bug fixes as well.

Patch notes on Login

First and foremost one the most important things moving forward is that the patch notes are now viewable on the login screen. This will help all players to stay up to date with the latest changes.

Ranked Off Season

Today marks the beginning of the ranked off season. This means that all Elo is being locked and won't change until the start of Ranked Season 1.

Ranked Rewards Coming Soon

With the off season starting we will be working on getting out the ranked rewards for the "Legacy Season" out ASAP!

Coven Ranked Practice

With the off season starting we will be implementing Coven Ranked Practice. Over the coming weeks we will be looking at the win rates of each faction and role in this mode and looking at the overall balance of this list. We will adjust it as necessary.

Hypnotist Has a New UI

The Hypnotist now has the ability to pick and choose what message is sent to the player that they hypnotize. This means that they have more control over what roles they can counter claim, or what roles they can fake are in the game.

Investigator Results Split

We originally had the Coven and original Town of Salem investigative results show up the same. This confused some people as not all the roles in the list are possible in the original game. The investigative results aren't changing themselves, but the results in the original game modes won't have the new roles included.

Coven Friends

Your friends list now knows who owns The Coven so you more easily make games with them. There will be a small blood moon icon around their online status indicating if they own The Coven. If they don't have this icon it means they don't own The Coven.

Jailor Death Note Replacement

We have received a lot of feedback about taking the Jailor's death note away. We are exploring a way to explain why they executed a player in their note. This will not be something that you can type in as we still don't want you to be able to reveal too much information anonymously.

Various Bug Fixes

We have fixed many bugs and typos with this patch. If you encounter a bug, or a typo, please make sure to let us know!

Happy Hanging!

The Coven Invades the Town of Salem! New Expansion Released!

Big News Townies!

Today we are announcing an expansion to Town of Salem! Town of Salem: The Coven. In this expansion we are introducing 15 new roles, a new faction, exclusive queues, rotating game modes, and tons of improvements to the current game.

The Coven is a new faction of witches that will enter the never ending death fest that is Town of Salem. The Coven will include 5 new witch roles, and the current Witch has taken the role of the Coven Leader! One of the Coven’s greatest strengths is the Necronomicon. The Necronomicon’s ancient powers will amplify the abilities of any witch that possesses it! The Coven will get the Necronomicon on night four of the game with the Coven Leader being the first priority. When the holder of the Necronomicon dies a random Coven member will get the Necronomicon.

This expansion will add a ton of new things, so check it all out the official announcement post here:

About This Game

Purchase comes with the exclusive SteamBot3000 Character Skin with unique death animation, 2,000 Town Points ($8 Value) and you will earn double Merit Points forever!

Town of Salem is a fresh innovation on the classic party games Mafia and Werewolf. It is a game of murder, accusations, deceit and mob hysteria.

How To Play

The game ranges from 7 to 15 players. These players are randomly divided into alignments - Town, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists and Neutrals. If you are a Town member (the good guys) you must track down the Mafia and other villains before they kill you. The catch? You don't know who is a Town member and who is a villain.

If you are an evil role, such as a Serial Killer, you secretly murder town members in the veil of night and try to avoid getting caught.


Town of Salem has 33 unique roles ensuring a different experience each time you play.

Before a game starts, players are put into a lobby where the host can select what roles will be in the game. Players are then assigned roles at random from the list of chosen roles. Players have an in-game role card that explains their role's abilities and alignments. For an in-depth look at the abilities of each role please visit:

Game Phases


The night phase is when most roles use their abilities. For example, Serial Killers stealthily murder people, Doctors heal people who are attacked, and Sheriffs interrogate people for suspicious activity.


The day phase allows the Town members to discuss who they suspect of being an evil role. Once the voting phase starts a majority vote from the town will put someone on trial.


The defense phase is when you plead your innocence to the town. Have a convincing story or find yourself facing the gallows!


During this phase the town will vote on the fate of the defendant. Players can vote guilty, innocent or abstain. If there are more guilty votes than innocent votes the defendant is sentenced to death by hanging!


Players are able to choose their own map (town setting), character, pet, lobby icon, death animation, house and a custom name. The other players in the game will see your selections. There are currently 10 maps, 29 characters, 20 pets, 5 death animations and 20 houses to choose from.


There are currently over 220 unique achievements in the game. Earning achievements will grant various in-game items (however the items for donation rewards are exclusive to Kickstarter).
