Paradox Interactive hosted the first Salem live stream today to give players a look at the upcoming free-to-play crafting MMO. The game is set in New England and features farming and building systems inspired by 17th century alchemy, as well as open PvP combat with permanent death. It's scheduled to launch in the second quarter of 2012.
