Torment: Tides of Numenera is the spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed RPG Planescape: Torment. Sporting members of the Planescape’s dev team, along with RPG talent from inXile Entertainment, Tides of Numenera treads the same thematic grounds as its spiritual predecessor. An old-school, isometric RPG, Tides of Numenera takes place on Earth a billion years in the future called the Ninth World. The game world itself comes from award-winning table-top RPG “Numenera” by Monte Cook – which is good as fans of the old Planescape: Torment must know that the new Torment has a heavy legacy to live up to.
See a trailer fleshing out the premise and background of the game, below. Torment: Tides of Numenera is currently set for the first quarter of 2017 and is planned for PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
