Purchasing the Coven Expansion
Players may purchase the expansion for $5.00 USD on Steam. Players must own the base game on Steam in order to be able to play the Coven expansion. Once the player owns both and has logged into the Steam version of the game, the player will be able to freely play the Coven expansion on Steam and also on the browser.
How to purchase the browser version:
- Log into the game with the account you wish to own the expansion
- Enter the game's "Shop"
- Select the "ACCOUNT" tab
- Select "Info" for the Coven Expansion
- A menu will display "UPGRADE YOUR ACCOUNT"
- Under "WEB PREMIUM", select "MORE INFO"
- Select "WEB PREMIUM + COVEN EXPANSION", unless you already own Web Premium, in which you'd select "COVEN EXPANSION" instead
- You will be re-directed to a site with payment options
- Complete the payment
On October the 14th, Coven became playable on the mobile version also. A bundle is purchasable and would reward the buyer with the phone-ix pet also.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I play as or with these new roles if I don't own the expansion?
These new roles are only playable in the expansion and cannot be played with in the traditional version of Town of Salem.
When do the rotating game modes switch out?
These game modes usually swap out every Tuesday at 1:00am CST. There may sometimes be a delay.
Why can I not enter a Coven Ranked match?
Currently there are not enough players attempting to play Coven Ranked.
Will players be able to try out the Coven for free?
|“||We might do free weekends at some point in the future but it wouldn't be a super regular occurrence.||”|
- On February 16th-19th of 2018, all users were able to play the Coven expansion free of charge.
Why isn't this expansion free?
|“|| None of the Coven roles (meaning all 15 roles in the expansion) are going to be added to classic. Coven will have a ranked mode so you aren't going to be missing out on anything. I think there will be little reason to continue playing classic unless you want to remain F2P or you are playing with friends that don't own Coven. We are trying to move away from F2P (microtransactions) and focus more on a freemium model (free version and paid version). With a freemium model we can spend a majority of our focus on just creating the best play experience possible and hoping a decent percentage of users pickup the Coven. With F2P we were forced to spend too much of our focus on cosmetics, sales and analytics. If there is a positive reaction to the Coven (15-20% conversion would be awesome) you can expect to see a big shift. We will pull back on promotion popups and microtransaction systems. We would much rather be spending our time making a great game that is worth $10.
Another big change you can expect to see is in the player base. Banning toxic users and multi-accounters is an unwinnable battle in F2P unless you force new accounts to go through a boring early leveling experience which of course hurts your new user experience and retention. With a freemium model everything changes. Multi-accounters will have to pay $10 per account and then have all of them banned in one swoop. You won't see much of that in the Coven. Additionally toxic users are going to get suspended or banned and realize that they need to play nice or lose all of the value in their account and wallet. We already have plans in place to bring on more judges for the trial system and to prioritize Coven reports. We hope to suspend/ban toxic players within 24 hours or less. Word will quickly spread through the Coven community that your account won't last long if you aren't respectful of other players.
On the 16th of May 2017, BlankMediaGames (BMG) made an announcement which told of the future expansion. On May 17th, the Public Test Realm (PTR) opened up, allowing users to freely test the expansion using the browser version of the game until June 6th of 2017.
In the PTR, users had noticed a mystery role which BMG had announced earlier. This was to be a surprise. However, the community had noticed scrolls available in the shop for this mystery role, and quickly learned of its name, which is the Juggernaut. The Juggernaut scrolls were later removed from the shop, though players may still obtain these scrolls by purchasing a bundle which contains 3 of every scroll.
On July 20th, the game was released for the browser version.
