On June 6th, 2017, The Coven Expansion was released. This expansion included 16 new roles (Plaguebearer and Pestilence counting as two), a new faction known as the Coven, and new rotating game modes.
In Version 3.3.0, the Hypnotist and Ambusher became available in Classic, leaving the Coven Expansion with 15 exclusive roles.
If you own the Coven Expansion, anyone in your friends list will know that you own the Coven Expansion, due to the RoleIcon Coven.png red crescent moon around your status. You will also be able to see Coven Expansion roles when browsing the Role Library.

Coven Classic - Introduction to the Coven Expansion, including a similar role list to its Classic counterpart.

Coven Ranked Practice - Practice game mode for Coven Ranked, replacing Mafia with Coven and Witch/Executioner with Neutral Killing/Neutral Evil.

Coven All Any - A chaotic game mode where the entire role list is Any.

VIP Mode - One of the Townies is the VIP. The Town knows who the VIP is, while everyone else doesn't. If the VIP dies, the Coven wins. Whispering is not allowed in this game mode.

Lovers Mode - Most players are paired with a Lover. They can whisper to each other privately. The Lovers win with eachother, regardless of faction. If one of the Lovers dies, the other will die of a broken heart (except Pestilence).

Coven Town Traitor - One of the Townies is now a Coven member. They know who the Coven is and now must kill the Town. If the Traitor is the last Coven member alive, a countdown of 3 Days will start. During this time, if the Traitor is not found, the Coven will win automatically.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I play with these 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 (Classic) version of Town of Salem.

When do the rotating game modes switch out?

These game modes usually swap out every Tuesday at 10:00am CST. There may sometimes be a delay.

Why can I not enter a Coven Ranked match?

There are not enough players attempting to play Coven Ranked at the time you are playing.

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.

Dates of when the expansion has been free to try:

  • February 16th-19th of 2018
  • November 23rd-26th of 2018
  • December 14th-17th of 2018
  • January 25th-28th of 2019
  • March 22nd-25th of 2019
  • May 24th-27th of 2019
  • February 21st-24th of 2020
  • March 6th-9th of 2020
    Coven Free Ticket.png

On the 29th of January, Coven Tickets were added to the game.

Coven tickets have now been granted to all users who qualify.

Users get 3 Coven tickets per 25 games played up to a maximum of 250 games played.

Each Coven ticket allows for 1 free game of the Coven.

Tickets are consumed similar to scrolls in that they are only consumed when a game ends, thus in the event of a server restart or server crash your ticket won't be consumed.

This allows for one game of any Coven mode, and over 250 games will give a maximum of 30 tickets. Previously played game will count towards gaining Coven Tickets e.g. if you played 50 games, you will receive 6 Coven Tickets. Leaving a game that was entered with a Coven Ticket will use up your ticket.

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 June 6th of 2017, BMG closed off the PTR and released the expansion on Steam.
  • On July 20th of 2017, the expansion was released for the browser version.
  • On October 14th of 2018, the expansion was finally released for the mobile version.


  • Prior to Version 3.3.0, the Ambusher and Hypnotist were Coven Expansion roles, but have since then escaped the expansion.
  • The Witch is the only Classic role that is not playable in the Coven Expansion game modes. This is because the Coven Leader performs the same night ability as the Witch.
  • Juggernaut was not announced originally when the expansion was announced. BlankMediaGames only announced the release of a secret role. The role was found out soon after by players who rolled it. Juggernaut is also the first and only role in the game that cannot be put onto a role list, but can only rolled by putting in Neutral Killing, Random Neutral or Any.
