When Are the New Islands Being Added?

Temtem developers Crema have said that we can expect new islands to be added over the course of the next year, added one-at-a-time rather than all in one go. In a content roadmap outlined on their site recently, Crema said that we could expect these islands to be added at the following times:

The next year of Temtem has been outlined pretty thoroughly, and it looks like it's going to be busy. | Crema/Humble Bundle
  • Summer 2020 - Kisiwa Island
  • Fall 2020 - Cipanku Island
  • Winter 2020 - Arbury Island
  • Spring 2021 - Unnamed "End-Game Island"

What Will Be on the New Islands?

Details on what exactly to expect on the new islands are rare so far, but there have been some hints and general descriptions from both the developers and characters in the game.

  • Kisiwa: Described as a "sun-drenched savanna," Kisiwa is split into its Western highlands, which contain a lot of Neutral Temtem, and its East desert, which is dominated by Earth-types. We actually showed you how to get to Kisiwa in our guide here, or at least as close as you can get so far.
  • Cipanku: Here the mystic and the mechanical rub shoulders, as Cipanku contains both laboratories that generate Digital-type Temtem, and remote hills of Monks that live with Electric types.
  • Arbury: Mentioned in the game for its prestigious university, Arbury holds a mix of Melee and Mental types, and apparently has some British theming on its design and characters.
  • End-Game Island: Crema have compared this unnamed island to "the Battle Frontier in you know what game", and said that it will be focused on PvE activities where players can be awarded based on their performance in Temtem battles.

How to Get New Islands

As far as we know, there's no intent to block off any islands as paid DLC or to backers of the game, so those who want to get the new islands will only need to update their copies of the game when the updates come out. It's also difficult to say if this roadmap will apply to the Switch version of the game, which was last mentioned to be coming out in the Spring/Summer period. Still, it seems like updates will be pretty regular and pretty substantial along with it, so Tamers can look forward to this being the year of Temtem.

We've got a lot more on Temtem here at USG, guides and otherwise. You can take a look at Mike's opinion of the early game here, or see Mat's story about Temtem selling online for hundreds of dollars.
