New trailer for Torment: Tides of Numenera showcases its strategic Xbox One RPG combat

Torment: Tides of Numenera is an upcoming role-playing game (RPG) that will take place in a future setting where science and technology are considered esoteric and magical. The title is being developed by the same team who were responsible for Wasteland and the original Fallout games, inXile Entertainment. Slated for launch on February 28, a new trailer has been published that showcases combat, skills, "cyphers", and some gameplay mechanics.

The thematic successor to Planescape Torment, a highly rated classic RPG, players will be able to enjoy a quick look into the old days of adventuring. It's not only possible to fight and clear your path, but dangerous situations can be resolved or even avoided. It all comes down to the roll of the dice, which could lead you to spilling blood or losing one's life and entering into a maze-like realm called the Castoff Labyrinth. The choice is yours.

There are some interesting mechanics featured here for sure. We're excited to see the game launch on February 28 and will certainly be picking up a copy to venture into the future. The title will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

  • Planescape Torment is one of the greatest games ever made and it looks like its successor is in good hands. This one is a definite buy for me.
  • A Torment successor...? Awesome!!! Hope it'll run on an i5 Surface Pro 4...
  • Agreed, only replace the 4 with a 3.
  • Good looking trailer and looking forward to this one.
  • I am so very excited about this game, as it has a lot of fun systems...It's also the Spiritual Successor to Planescape: Torment. The aesthetic of this game are absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to experience the story for the first time.
