The story of any lengthy role-playing game can often get lost in the many dozens of hours its spread across, but with a handy 'Story Trailer' for Torment: Tides of Numenera, you should have no trouble starting off on the right foot.
Billed as a spiritual successor the 1999 release of Planetscape: Torment - of which is technically set witin the universe of Dungeons & Dragons - InExile's continuation has been a long time coming.
The 2-minute long comic-book style trailer does an impressive job of outlining the core storyline of the upcoming title. Spinning the tale of an immortal man being hunted by the god of balance, you're the last by-product of his skin-shedding, body-hopping powered method of reincarnation - you're another one of the husks on the hit list of the 'The Sorrow' who was awakened to put an end to The Changing God's consistently successful efforts to cheat death.
What's Inside Each Of Torment: Tides of Numenera's Three Different Launch Editions?
Though the Changing God has kept his old bodies close at hand once they've developed life of their own, you are a little different. Unshackled and fresh out of the gate, you're still marked as one of the illegal Castoffs of the immortal man and hunted by the Sorrow deity attempting to put things right - but how do you go about fighting for survival? Thousands of dialogue choices and plenty of brawling!
Torment: Tides of Numenera launches in just short of 3 weeks time. February 28, to be exact. Check out the Special Editions in the link above.
