'Temtem' Leaving Early Access, Gets Release Date And Launch Content Details - Trailer

by Rainier on May 24, 2022 @ 3:31 p.m. PDT

Inspired by Pokémon, Temtem is a massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure.

On a set of floating islands known as the Airborne Archipelago, happy humans and magnificent creatures known as Temtem live in harmony. Some people hear whispers of a nefarious organization that would rather use these animals for labor and war. Be a hero and set out to find and catch Temtem, train and foster unbreakable bonds with them, and stop this shadowy group before they can cause any harm.

After creating a character, journey across six vividly stylized islands. Temtem’s beautiful cartoony art-style and sweeping music inspire a sense of nostalgic adventure. A fully co-op campaign encourages friends to stay side by side throughout the whole game. As a massively multiplayer game, there are always other players wandering about. Join them in befriending critters soaring in the skies, rummaging through the bushes, and splashing about in ponds. After starting a respectable collection, it’s time to fight!

A deep, competitive battle system removes all random factors to ensure an even playing field. Level up, learn new abilities, find weaknesses, and exploit them. Skirmishes always play out with two Temtem on each side and up to four players can clash at once. Temtem is built for tournaments and as such has a pick-ban system. Instead of coming into each battle with a set team, players each ban one of their opponents’ Temtem so competitors must always remain adaptable.

Humble Games and Crema announced that following a successful Early Access release, Temtem will be officially launching on September 6, 2022.

At launch, Temtem players will be able to experience new features, such as Seasons, the final island of Archipelago and rewarding new weekly quests.

Starting today, prospective tamers can pre-order the digital and physical versions on PC via the Humble Store and Steam, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, with Nintendo Switch pre-orders to be available soon. A Digital Deluxe version, which includes the complete game and cosmetic bonuses is also available for pre-order today.

In addition, for fans that can’t get enough of Temtem, a carefully curated bundle of Temtem essentials will be available for purchase separately from the game with the Temtem Collector’s Edition. The bundle will include a statue diorama, replica Temcards, enamel pins, and more!

New Features Coming to Temtem at Launch:

  • Seasons: After the launch of 1.0, we’ll release seasonal updates and a Battle Pass with free and premium awards tracks.
  • Endgame Island: The final island will be added, completing the Airborne Archipelago. This island will feature new activities through which you can test yourself as a Temtem tamer, new places to shop, and new areas to explore with friends.
  • New quests: Engage in weekly quests, which will be updated regularly post-launch

Key Features:

  • Story Campaign: Journey across six vivid islands and embark on the adventure of becoming a Temtem tamer while fighting against the evil Clan Belsoto.
  • Online World: The days of traveling solo are over; in Temtem the world is a massively multiplayer one. Tamers from around the world can join and you will be able to see them around you, living the adventure with you and fighting to become the best Temtem tamer.
  • Co-Op Adventure: You will be able to join forces with a friend any time and work together towards your next goal. Catch new Temtem, complete a Route, or face off against a Temtem Leader; all while fighting alongside your friend in dual battles!
  • Housing: Buy your own house at Atoll Row and decorate it your way. Buy new furniture, color your walls and you’ll be ready to invite your friends over!
  • Customize: Customize your character to stand out from the crowd and get new cosmetics while you battle other tamers. Pick a silly hat, a comfy sweatshirt, some pants and you’re ready to go! Or maybe you prefer to wear a full-on cosplay of your favorite Temtem?
  • Competitive: Start by choosing 8 Temtem and the pick and ban phase will begin. Take turns with your rival to pick your Temtem and ban theirs. When all the decisions are made and the turns are ended, you will end up with a squad of 5 Temtem and the battle will begin.
  • Always Growing: New content is constantly being added to Temtem, new events, new missions, new cosmetics, new Temtem, and new ways to play!

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Temtem is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam / Humble Store) on September 6, 2022.
