Set against a world ravaged by a plague, Thymesia will challenge players with fast-paced melee combat while they unravel the mysteries that haunt the harrowingly beautiful world.

Thymesia challenges players with fast-paced and brutal melee combat using weaponized diseases.

A kingdom once thriving on the power of alchemy enters an age of calamity. After discovering the price behind alchemy, an attempt to stop the use of it backfired. Within a few days, the kingdom was in chaos and the streets infested with monsters.

The key to understanding all of this is in Corvus’ hands, but he has lost his memory. The truth can only be found within his memories, but every time he dives back in, he only finds more secrets.

At the heart of the story is Corvus, a mysterious character capable of seizing enemy diseases and using them as weapons against his adversaries; players will engage in visceral combat, combining ferocious offensive abilities, perfectly timed parries, and dynamic dodges to take down unforgiving enemies.

Players will also have the ability to customize Corvus to their own play style, upgrading and improving various stats to aid in their journey to recover Corvus’ memories.

Originally planned for December 7, 2021 but delayed until 2022, Team17 and OverBorder Studio have announced that Thymesia will be launching on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S alongside PC on August 9, 2022.

Interested fans can check out a playable Thymesia PC demo during Steam's Going Rogue festival, which runs from May 2nd until May 9th.

Key Features:

  • Weaponizing diseases: As Corvus, players can seize diseases from enemies and wield them as deadly weapons
  • Engaging combat: Players will need to use their entire arsenal to avoid death; dodging attacks and parrying at precisely the right time will be instrumental to survival
  • A dark and deadly world: With a sinister and gloomy backdrop, Thymesia oozes character through its environments and setting
  • Unforgiving enemies: Corrupted by the plague, and mutated into monsters, the enemies are twisted and incredibly hostile, challenging players at every turn
  • Replayability: The ability to customize Corvus and try different builds, coupled with the multiple different endings available, means no two playthroughs are ever the same.

Thymesia is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) on August 9, 2022.
