Which is a fairly broad window, but we think we can safely say this close to Q1, 2022, Thymesia, from publisher Team17 and developer Overborder Studio, will release at least beyond that given it's simply stated as "2022" for its re-positioned release date. Though we're always happy for a game to spend more time in development, especially when it's a precision-based venture in the Souls-like genre camp.
It's also really cool when you sit back and watch a genre unfold in ways and through different developers than maybe first intended. The jury will be out on Thymesia until we can let loose our Souls experts on it, but from where we currently sit, it's definitely on that quickly-filling manifest of games to watch in 2022.
Here's a bit more from the -like devs:
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.
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.
