Patch 2.2.0 Ranked Season 2 Begins!

Hey Townies,

Today we will be starting Season 2 of Ranked! Since last season was kind of a bust we didn't change much in terms of balance as we didn't have any good data to go off of. We will be using the data we get from this season to make improvements to roles, the role list, and more for Season 3. Below is everything that is coming with this patch.

Ranked Season 2 Begins!

Season 2 is going to be starting, and with that we are going to be doing a hard reset of rating. This means that everyone will be starting at 1200 rating when they do their placement matches. Sadly because of the bugs that plagued Season one we weren't able to gather any trustworthy data, this means that balance changes for this season are a bit light.

Balance changes

With the lack of trustworthy data the only changes that will be coming with this season are a small investigative results change. We will be swapping the Witch and Amnesiac in their results. The Survivor, Vampire Hunter, or Witch result was a bit unfair for the Witch in non-Coven ranked games. With the Witch being in a result with Lookout and Forger the Witch should have an easier time in ranked games, and the Survivor, Vampire Hunter, and Amnesiac result will just not be possible since these roles are not possible in those games.

New Cosmetics!

Jack Frost, the Spirit of Winter is now Salemified!

And of course Jack never goes anywhere without his trusty pal, Iceberg!

New Login Background

Bug Fixes!
  • Fixed a bug that would cause the Pirate to die to a dead Pestilence if they selected to duel Pestilence during the day that Pestilence was hanged.
  • Fixed a bug where as the Trapper if you placed a trap on a player the night they died to the Vet that the trap would persist. This would mean the Trapper would have to deactivate his trap to be able to place one again.

New chapter in the Witch's story!

Off Season Begins

Hey Townies,

Today is the end of Ranked Season 1. We will be running a short off season, but will then start Season 2. During the off season your rating will not change if you win or lose a game. There won't be many changes done to Ranked for Season 2 as most of our data from season one is not exactly accurate due to all of the issues. When Season 2 does start we will be doing a hard reset for everyone back to 1200 rating and wiping everyone's career high stat so that it can, once again, be a true measure of skill. We hope this season will be better, and we will be paying closer attention to issues related to ranked in the future. We want to thank you all for your help in finding the issues that plagued Season 1 so that we can make Season 2 a great one.

Rewards for Season 1 will distributed shortly after the patch. Due to us ending the season months earlier than planned the rewards will be another set of new lobby icons related to each tier below and some Merit Points based on what tier you reached. Next season we will have much cooler rewards.

0-999 rating Bronze

1000-1399 rating Silver

1400-1599 rating Gold

1600-1799 rating Platinum

1800-1999 rating Diamond

2000+ rating Master

Bug Fixes:

We fixed an issue with both Lookout and Spy that was causing the order in which names were displayed for their abilities to use priority ordering the same way the voting issue did. This should now be random as well.

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).
