Temtem How to Play Early Access & Alpha

If you're wanting to play Temtem as soon as possible, we're taking a look at how you can get started in Early Access or Alpha! It might be a bit too late for one of these methods, but you will be able to join up and catch and collect Temtem very soon.

Temtem is a monster catching game that has quite a few similarities to the beloved series, Pokemon. It has been making a bit of a name for itself because it's an MMO version of that type of game, as well as it being able to be played coop. If you've been pining for a game like that then you are in luck! It will be releasing into Early Access on January 21st, 2020.

Temtem Alpha

Backers of the game on Kickstarter and a temporary pre-purchase via Discord allowed people to get into the Alpha of the game. These are no longer available unfortunately, and you cannot get into the Alpha. While this is no longer available, you will be able to join in on the fun via the Early Access.

Temtem Stress Test

If you want to jump into the game a bit early without having to pay, you can sign-up for the Temtem Stress Test! This is a three day event that will take place prior to the Early Access. If you want to get in on the fun, head to this link and put your name down for a chance to be involved with it.

Codes have been sent through e-mail, and each person that received one was given an extra. If you weren't able to get one, check the Temtem Reddit or Discord for people giving them away!

Temtem Early Access

The Temtem Early Access is set to be release on January 21st, 2020! You will be able to purchase this via Steam. There's no official price yet, but the pre-order from Discord cost $35 USD. We would expect that the price is going to be very similar to that, although nothing has been confirmed yet.

The Early Access looks like it will include coop, which was just added in a recent Alpha patch. There will be three islands available to explore of the six that are planned to be released in the full-game. It looks like there will be 76 Temtem species that can be obtained in Early Access, and there will be over 160+ once the game is fully released.
