inExile has released a new story trailer for their upcoming science-fantasy RPG Torment: Tides of Numenera.
Here is inExile’s official description
“A billion years in the future a man discovered a way to cheat death. A seeker of knowledge and wisdom, his ultimate goal was to leave an unforgettable mark on the world. In his quest for everlasting legacy, he discovered ancient technology – the Numenera – that allowed him to transfer his consciousness to a body of his own design. Thus he became known as the Changing God.
In a bid to escape death, the Changing God inadvertently awakened a fearsome, ancient beast known as The Sorrow – a terrifyingly powerful guardian of balance, bent on destroying the Changing God and all of his Castoffs.
It is at this point that the dramatic events of your birth unfold and your story to answer who you are, and what your legacy might be, begins…”
Torment: Tides of Numenera is another CRPG inspired game from inExile that build on what they did with previous works. That means the same focus on narrative, player choice and tactical turn based combat.
Perhaps the most unique aspect of the game is the way death is handled. Rather than a game over, when a player falls in combat they are sent to a Labyrinth within their own mind. This labyrinth is filled with jungles, stairways and ruined cities. As the player explores this labyrinth they are met with reflection of companions, connections to past lives and new powers.
Torment: Tides of Numenera launches February 28th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
