Temtem makes its console debut exclusively on PS5

Early Access for the massively multiplayer creature-collection starts December 8.

After eight months on PC, and over 19 million Tems tamed, Temtem is making its console debut exclusively on PlayStation 5, with Early Access beginning on December 8. The game will feature crossplay between the PS5 and PC communities. 

Temtem makes its console debut exclusively on PS5

If you haven’t read our announcement post yet, here’s a quick recap: Temtem is a massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure where you seek adventure in the lovely Airborne Archipelago alongside your Temtem squad. Players can catch every Tem, challenge other tamers, customize their house, or join a friend’s adventure in a full co-op experience.

What to expect from Early Access 

The world of Temtem is divided into six main islands. Players can access four of them at the start of Early Access. Temtem’s main campaign will carry you through these islands in a journey spanning more than 30 hours, in which you’ll be able to capture over 100 unique Tems!

The whole campaign is playable in co-op, and since Temtem is an always-online world, you’ll constantly meet other players around you and will be able to battle, trade, or just chat and get to know fellow Temtem tamers.

You can pre-order Temtem today at a discounted price and receive an exclusive in-game title, PSN avatars, and Early Access on December 8! 

Competitive, customization and aspirational activities 

Once you’ve completed the story campaign, what you want to do next is up to you: there are plenty of activities and features to focus your attention on. If you’re a competitive Tamer, you can test out your skills in ranked matchmaking battles featuring competitive rule sets. These encounters demand strong tactics and strategic thinking to win. Don’t expect luck to save you. Skill is the defining factor of the best players.  

If you prefer to live your online life stylishly, you can focus on fully customizing your character or even your own house. In Temtem, each player can have their own home located in Atoll Row, an infinite neighborhood where players can walk through and visit every house in the game with no load times.

Temtem also offers some more activities, catered to the more hardcore players out there. Attempt to take on Dojo leaders in new increasingly difficult battles in weekly challenges, hunt for ultra-rare, specially colored Temtems called Lumas at the Saipark, or fish for one of the many (10,368 to be exact!) variations of Koish at the Nuru Lodge.  

Why jump in during Early Access? 

With each major Island update to Temtem the base price will increase. After full release Temtem will flatten out at $44.99 / €37.99 for Standard and $64.99 / €54.99 for Deluxe. Meaning, the earlier you buy in, the cheaper the game will be! 

Additionally, players with the Deluxe Edition that dive in early will receive an exclusive pack of camouflage cosmetics, including a uniform, bandana, and backpack.

What’s coming after Early Access?  

Temtem will continue to receive updates periodically while being in Early Access until we reach 1.0. Some of the features that you should expect in the coming months are:

  • More story content: Two brand new islands that will guide the player to finishing the game’s story arc.
  • Dozens of new Temtem, including three very special mythical Tems.
  • New multiplayer features like the trading house that will allow server-wide trading or the long-awaited clan wars.
  • More aspirational activities for the most dedicated players, including a whole new island dedicated to end-game activities and a hardcore game mode.

Stay tuned for major island updates as we’ll be increasing the size of the game all the way through Early Access.

  • Been waiting for this!

  • can i avoid pvp in this game or is it forced?

    • Can avoid completely. I have the PC version and nothing forces it on you. Optional extra. Also to note co-op is literally pretty free. You and whoever can do what you want and team up for battles etc. Pretty nice honestly.

    • This is single player game, but you cant avoid the horde of npcs in linear corridors that will stop you every 5 steps

  • I’ll be getting this version as I bought the PC version and got no friends on it. I hope this gets a physical release

  • Am I seeing double or are there two exact same Product Version images on the page?

    • Yea 2020 seems to be an awkward position for deluxe editions. Demon’s Souls and now TemTem are trying to sell a game for $20 more for a few digital goods. The value isn’t there

    • Demon’s Souls Deluxe Ed gives a ton of things.

      2 exclusive armor sets

      2 exclusive weapons

      1 shield

      1 ring

      9 various items (souls/upgrade materials)

      1 Soundtrack

      Pretty hefty for a $20 Deluxe upgrade imo. Certainly a fair bit of content.

    • A “hefty amount of content” is 1 weapon, 1 shield and 2 sets of clothes all taken from enemy models, 1 ring which you never see, and a few crappy upgrade materials. All that appear in the game anyway.

      Ok then.

      All that that kind of “content” has as value is the one removed from any respect the publisher had.

  • Been following this for a while and remember reading about how the game came about. Looks so good. Won’t be jumping in early purely because I’ve gotten bitten by promises of most stuff down the line in so many games now and they’ve not worked ouot for one reason or another that I’d rather just wait it out and pay full price once it’s there. Will be hard to resist, but a few skins and a tiny discount aren’t enough to tip me over the edge if actual missing out on the game itself won’t.

  • Wow…. a whole $1.50 discount for being a beta tester

  • How I about pre-ordering this can’t seem to find it in os store

  • Will trophies be obtainable during early access?

    • Probably not.
      I unlocked trophies for Rogue Company like 1-2 weeks before open beta started and not earlier.
      Depends at which state Temtem will be.

  • Is there going to be a physical release or only digital?

  • Sony please allow us to gift games to our friends!

  • Is there a physical copy?

  • Super hype for this game! I played it on Pc and had the time of my life on it!

  • So, Early Access is only available if you put an order in?

  • Chciałem zapytać, czy na konsole PS5 będzie gra po Polsku ?

  • Been looking forward to this game. Love monster catchers & hope this will be a good and worthy Pokémon alternative for PS. The fact that we get to have an Early Access game is dope. Hope that means we’ll get more Early Access games on PS5.

  • So let me get this right: $20 extra only gets you a couple camo items? What a ripoff. That should be $5 extra at the most.

  • This is the wrong move, i paid 29.99 for this game on steam and wasnt worth my time, too grindy and just bottlenecking everything to hide the lack of content. After 9 months every change has been for the worst, i dont see why this is ps5 exclusive, maybe ps4, but for whta i see in my pc, doesnt need a ps5 and will not be a good port, is not enhanced as no mans sky, this will be disapointing for at least 12 months untill they finish it and remake their mechanics to be less grindy and fix the breeding which is just designed to be a money sink, im a sony fan since ps2, but this game is not good. I would rather see a new silent hill/metal gear than have temtem as a ps5 exclusive
