Tamers everywhere, it’s time to meet your friends, Temtem up, and set out on a new adventure – Temtem1.0 is out on Xbox Series X|S today!
If you’re unfamiliar with the vibrant and adventure-filled world of Temtem, there’s no better day than today to experience it for yourself. In Temtem, you journey alongside your Temtem squad and join players from around the planet on a massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure. Together, you’ll explore the Airborne Archipelago – experiencing the story campaign, catching new Temtem on Omninesia’s floating islands, battling other tamers on the sandy beaches of Deniz, trading with your friends in Tucma’s ash-covered fields, and exploring every corner of Temtem’s dynamic online world.
Xbox Series X|S players can enjoy Temtem in 4K and 60 fps, which is a great way to appreciate all the little details of the Archipelago. And if you want to journey with a pal, you can also invite your friends through Xbox’s friend system, and the game will do its best to pair you up on the same shard of the server.
There’s lots to discover – and if you’re wondering where to begin, here are five pointers to help you get your journey started in the right direction.

Crystle is a cute but tough Temtem that looks like the Archipelago’s smaragdine turtles, but is actually closer to minerals than to fauna. The cheerful and fun loving Smazee was bred for generations as a playmate and babysitter for children, but is a capable fighter when push comes to shove. Finally, the clever Houchic is empathic and intuitive, capable of understanding the subtleties of mentalism.
While it may seem like a hard decision, and you may be tempted to do a bunch of research before you make your choice, don’t sweat it too much – each will prove to be a great introductory companion, and you’ll be able to tame them all later down the road.
Stock Up on These Supplies
The shops around the Archipelago sell lots of different handy items, but there are a few in particular you’ll want to take along with you as soon as you can. Balms will heal your injured Temtem and help them stay in the fight, while Smoke Bombs will transport you back to a recent safe spot if things get particularly rough, or you just want to take a break. (Oh, and if you find yourself in a pinch at the beginning of the adventure, Aina will heal you in your home if you talk to her.) And always be sure to carry a healthy stack of TemCards, which you’ll use to…
Capture as Many Temtem as You Can!
In addition to the satisfaction of collecting, you’ll open up more options for squad synergies that can give you an advantage in battle (sometimes quite a powerful one!), which can mean the difference between victory and defeat. Keep your…
