Temtem, developer Crema’s massively multiplayer riff on Pokémon, will exit early access and get its full release on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC on September 6.

Temtem, you may recall, entered Steam Early Access in January 2020, selling over half a million copies in its first month of release. Since then, Crema has steadily expanded the game’s core creature-collecting and battling action – introducing new Temtem, new islands to explore, and new social and competitive features, not to mention launching an access version. anticipated for PS5 – and the 1.0 update is finally in sight.

After more than two years in Early Access, Temtem is already quite feature rich, with its pre-release version including the bulk of its story campaign across the Airborne Archipelago, well over 100 Temtem to catch, cooperative play, competitive multiplayer, clans, housing, trade and tournaments. However, its final version promises a number of new additions.
