Thymesia is a new Souls-like game in which the player will use the power of death and disease to defeat their enemies. Here’s everything we know about Thymesia.
Thymesia is an upcoming action RPG that shares more than a few similarities with Dark Souls and Bloodborne. The game is part of the Soulslike subgenre of games but is being developed by OverBorder Studio and published by Team17.
While the game has a lot in common with FromSoftware’s Souls games, it also has a lot of original ideas when it comes to combat and storytelling. The game’s playable character, Corvus, is said to bring death and disease to their enemies, but why? Here’s everything we know about Thymesia.
Thymesia is very similar to Bloodborne, but has many original ideas.
Does Thymesia have a release date?
Thymesia will release on August 18, 2022. The game was scheduled to arrive on August 9, 2022, but was delayed by a week in July.
Originally announced as a PC exclusive, Thymesia is now released on pc, PS5and Xbox Series X|S. It is not yet known whether the game will be released on PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch.
Thymesia’s announcement trailer can be viewed below:
Gameplay and Settings
Thymesia looks a lot like a cross between Dark Souls and Bloodborne. While Corvus, the game’s protagonist, looks like a fighter from Bloodborne, the combat is more reminiscent of Dark Souls 3. The trailer shows Corvus duality with knights and other enemies as in Dark Souls, rather than slicing up hordes of enemies like in Bloodborne.
The name Corvus and the clothes the character wears both refer to crows and instantly reminded us of what plague doctors wore in the Middle Ages. Of course, these crow masks represented death and plague and that’s exactly what Corvus will use in Thymesia to their advantage.
The game will feature “an intricate plague weapon system” in which the player can “harness the power of disease and find the truth in your own memories.” So it seems that Corvus is bringing and possibly even spreading the plague.
It also sounds like Corvus will try to uncover the truth about their past during their quest. The word thymesia is derived from the Greek word for memory, so we think memories will also play an important role in the game.
