Team17 and OverBorder Studio announced that their punishing action RPG Thymesia will be launching on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, and PC in 2022.
Set in a hauntingly beautiful world, Thymesia follows the mysterious half-human, half-raven Corvus as he tries to piece together his lost memories in an attempt to save himself and the kingdom he once called home. With punishing combat focused on Corvus’ ability to steal enemies’ plague weapons and use them for himself, perfect parries, dynamic dodges, and aggressive attacks are at the core of the challenges Thymesia has to offer.
Let's take a look at the newly released trailer:
Thymesia Key Features:
Weaponising 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 customise Corvus and try different builds, coupled with the multiple different endings available, means no two playthroughs are ever the same.
