Get excited plague survivors. Punishing action-RPG Thymesia will launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on the 9th of August. As the mysterious masked protagonist Corvus, players will battle through the plague-ridden and blood-soaked streets of Hermes. He will be up 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.
The game looks suitably disturbing filled with monstrous bosses. The score is a mixture of macabre and in your face rock and it blends well. My personal favourite aspect of the game is that in it Corvus can weaponise the very diseases of the world to decimate his enemies. The fact they become actual weapons is a design choice I appreciate. Furthermore, I really dig the designs of the creatures. Even in games that are dark and grim, there are splashes of colour that look fascinating.
After defeating Elden Ring, Returnal and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice I have to say I’m falling further in love with the genre. Thymesia has a style and an aesthetic that I totally dig.
Thymesia is currently available to Wishlist on Steam.
