Techland and inXile Entertainment have released a new trailer for their science-fantasy RPG Torment: Tides of Numenera. This epic cinematic story trailer recounts the lore leading up to the very moment that players begin their odyssey as the Last Castoff -the flesh-and-blood by-product of a megalomaniacal deity known as the Changing God.
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...
The world of Torment: Tides of Numenera is rife with conflict. Although players can avoid or resolve dangerous situations in bloodless ways with deception, persuasion or stealth, sometimes a decision - or even just a bad roll of the dice - will mean that blood must be spilled.
Torment: Tides of Numenera will launch on the 28th of February for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac.
