The Temtem early access launch date is here and now PC players can get a taste of the Pokemon life without the need to leave the safety of our rigs – few. There are a few PC Games like Pokemon, but this one looks like the closest we may get. Even more so, it looks like Temtem offers the challenge that Pokemon Sword and Shield doesn’t.

Temtem takes us to the airborne region of Archipelago and tasks us with capturing and training temtems so we can take on Temtem dojos (not gyms) and other tamers (not trainers). There are MMO elements, too, and you’ll see other player-controlled tamers roaming the lands. You can even join in their adventure and help them out. Or, if it’s more your speed, you can customise your home to make it sincerely yours.

If this sounds like your kind of thing, you’ll be happy to know that you can give the multiplayer game a whirl before its eventual release. So, here’s how to get involved in Temtem early access.
