Stress test & end of Alpha dates

Happy new year tamers!

2020 is shaping to be a very busy year for Temtem. We’re very excited to share with you everything we have ready for the next coming months, but that news will have to wait a bit because today we need to talk about the Alpha and the upcoming Stress test.

The Alpha is reaching its end

After 13 months of continued support and non-stop access to the Temtem Alpha, the time of farewell is coming really soon. As we work on moving forward with the public Early Access launch for Temtem we need to stop the Alpha access so we can work freely on improving the server and doing the final touches to get everything ready.

Alpha will close on Jan 9th @ 10am PST / 1pm EST / 7pm CET.

After this date, players won’t be able to log in to the server.

Stress test dates and FAQ

Just before launching publicly, we want to run a stress test to properly test everything out. The stress test will help us test the maximum capacity of our servers and will also allow us to identify potential problems before going public.

These tests are going to be distributed between different days and timeframes:

  • Jan 11th @ 10am-2pm PST
  • Jan 17th @ 11am-1pm PST
  • Jan 19th @ 9am-11am PST

What is the stress test?

It is a public and free test for Temtem. We want to run this test in order to have a better estimation of how the servers will behave on launch day.

As a user, participating in the stress test will allow you to take a first look at Temtem before the game is released and in the process, help us out.

How do I sign up?

You can sign-up using your email on

You will be contacted during Jan 9th and Jan 10th, and you will be given a Steam key which you can redeem for test access.

If I play during the stress test, will I own the game when it launches?

No. The Stress test key will only grant access during the stress test hours. In order to keep playing Temtem when the game is released on January 21st, you’ll need to buy the game.

Will progress made during the stress test be kept on the release?

No. Everything will be wiped out from the server before going into the Early Access release.

Are there any limits on available content during the stress test?

No. Everything currently available on the Alpha will be available during the stress test (the campaign, co-op, pvp, trading…).

I am a backer. Do I need to get an invitation?

No. If you currently have access to the Alpha, you’ll get access to the stress test. You will be able to use the same player you currently have and the same installation you have for the Alpha.

Will progress done during the Stress Test carry forward when the game launches?

No. Everything will be wiped before launching the game into Early Access.
