Team 17, alongside developers OverBorder Studio, have announced that Thymesia will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam on August 9th! Team 17 have also released a new trailer for the game via YouTube, which you can watch below:


As the mysterious masked protagonist Corvus, players will battle through the plague-ridden and blood-soaked streets of Hermes against the unforgiving enemies that now inhabit the once-thriving city. Tasked with uncovering the truth and saving Hermes, Corvus will utilise mysterious plague powered weapons reaved from fallen foes and use them to execute devastating attacks as he overcomes seemingly impossible odds and uncovers the truth hidden in his memories.

What to Expect From Thymesia

To give players an idea of what to expect from the title, Team 17 have revealed some of Thymesia‘s key features, which include:

• Weaponising diseases: Seize diseases from enemies and wield them as deadly weapons
• Fight Your Way: Upgrade and modify Corvus’ basic movements and plague weapons to devastating effect
• 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, enemies are twisted and incredibly hostile, challenging players at every turn
