Torment: Tides Of Numenera (TTON) Receives February Release Date (VIDEO)
Here’s one for those that love old (and new) school isometric RPGs! Torment: Tides Of Numenera (TTON) is coming out February 28, the release date having been announced alongside the “Day One” edition and the collector’s edition. TTON will be in the eyes of many, a spiritual successor to the amazing and highly role play focused Planescape: Torment which came out in 1999.
This is one that I am incredibly excited for, having been a fan of similar games, such as Planescape: Torment, Baldur’s Gate (1 and 2), Icewind Dale, etc, and a lot of others are excited too, as seen on their kickstarter for the game, having received over $4.1 million dollars in funds. Planescape: Torment was a very story driven game, and very wordy – and it appears that TTON will be doing the same thing as their kickstarter states “Torment will have a strong emphasis on story and character development, which will permeate other facets of gameplay, such as combat and exploration”.
You are the Last Castoff, the final link in the chain of the lives of the being they call the Changing God. He once was a man who discovered a way to use the relics of the ancients to cheat death and skip across the face of centuries in a succession of bodies. But he never knew that his bodies lived on as his consciousness fled, a new consciousness arising in each. Now he has awakened an age-old enemy, the Angel of Entropy, and his days of change are gone as the Angel hunts him and all his works. That includes… you.
The development team behind TTON, inXile Entertainment, seems to be putting a lot of love into this title, working hard to make it look good, and play well, keeping that isometric RPG feel that many people used to love or have grown to love in recent years. In their latest update, Chris Keenan assured people they will do their best to make sure this game is the best it can be before release, writing “Rest Assured that while we have our release date, that doesn’t mean our work is quite done yet. We’ll be using our remaining time to polish the game for you up to the last possible moment.”
Are you looking forward to the new title? Have you played Planescape: Torment? Do you like some of the older RPG’s like Bladur’s Gate, or do you like some of the newer games like Dragon Age (who have recently hinted at the future of their franchise)?
