Action RPG Thymesia Headed to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC in 2022

OverBorder Studio and Team17 have announced that their action role-playing game Thymesia will release for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in addition to the previously announced PC version. The game was expected to release in December 2021, but will now release in 2022 for all the aforementioned platforms.

“We know this will come as a disappointment to many, but our goal is to release Thymesia in the best possible state, and to do this, we need a little longer to work on the finishing touches,” OverBorder Studio wrote in a Steam update. “It is important to us as game developers to put out something we’re proud of, and we can’t wait for you to enjoy the experience we’ve created next year when it’s fully ready.”

Thymesia is set in a once-thriving kingdom that descends into chaos in an attempt to stop the practice of alchemy. An official overview reads:

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.

Key features include:

  • Harness the Plague – Seize the disease from gruesome bosses and wield them as weapons. Give them a taste of their own medicine. This is the only way to survive this desolate kingdom.
  • Embrace the Raven – Shift into your raven form during battle. Throw your feathers like daggers and execute enemies with the swiftness of a raptor.
  • Fight Your Way – Upgrade and modify your basic movements and plague weapons. Build your very own play-style and prepare for the challenges in your way.
  • Shattered Memories – Recover your memories through adventures. With different choices you’ve made and items you’ve collected, you’ll get different endings. Stitch together your own truth.
