Team17 and OverBorder Studio have announced that punishing action-RPG Thymesia launches on PC on 7th December. Set in a once thriving kingdom now fallen to chaos, only the mysterious plague-masked Corvus – a half human, half raven hybrid – can unlock scattered memories and unravel the mysteries that lurk among the plague infected shadows.
Charged with the possession of a pair of ravening weapons that can seize the plague from enemies and harness the abilities for himself, Thymesia‘s shadowy protagonist is a ferocious adversary for the monsters that lurk in the gloom, combining acquired plague powers with perfectly timed parries and dynamic dodges to smite them.
As Corvus, players can seize diseases from enemies and wield them as deadly weapons, but they will also need to use their entire arsenal to avoid death; dodging attacks and parrying at precisely the right time will be instrumental to survival. With a sinister and gloomy backdrop, Thymesia oozes character through its environments and setting, which are filled with twisted and incredibly hostile enemies. Players can also customise Corvus and try different builds, and coupled with the multiple different endings available means no two playthroughs are ever the same.
