Face Your Demons in Supernatural RPG The Thaumaturge on PS5 | Push Square

The Thaumaturge is an upcoming isometric RPG that's caught our eye with its intriguing alt-history setting, concerned with demonic beings called salutors, and coming to PS5 sometime in 2024. It takes place in Warsaw in 1905, and as a Thaumaturge, the player can commune with these dark entities in battle and out against the fearsome Russian Okhrana (the Tzar's secret police), who controls the streets with an iron fist.
It seems like a reasonably exciting blend of mechanics from traditional JRPGs and CRPGs (which you don't often see) combined with a setting reminiscent of the ambitious yet underappreciated Vampyr. The salutors are another interesting element, like Persona's, but with that dark, Polish folklore influence that makes The Witcher's setting so refreshing.
Salutor to you, sir
What do you think of The Thaumaturge? Does the mix of folklore, a pre-modern setting, and a blending of mechanics intrigue you? Let us know in the comments section below.
Khayl Adam is the second best video game journalist Australia has ever produced, and his ambitions of world domination have (thus far) been curbed by the twin siren songs of strategy games and CRPGs. He has always felt an affinity for the noble dachshund, the best kind of dog.
This definitely looks interesting. On the radar for sure.
I'd look out for the review for sure.
I watch ChristopherOdd on YouTube and he’s played a section of this — looks awesome and very unique with its turn based combat.
This is only out for PC on the 20th, PS5 is slated for 2024.
After this I really want a Koudelka remake or part 2 that game had such awsome vibes just like this one I will certainly be looking out for this.
This is certainly something that has me intrigued. The voice acting seems a little stilted, but the gameplay is more important and certainly looks like something that would be of interest to me...
I wish I liked turn-based games. Cause this setting looks real cool to me.
Oh yeay, so soon for PS5? That's good news, since I was already pondering the idea of playing it on PC instead!
Edit: @Khayl are you sure about the PS5 release date? Since it says for PC in the trailer.
I really liked Vampyr. Would never have played it without ps+ tbh
