Torment: Tides of Numenera Releases Epic New Story Trailer

inXile Entertainment has released a new story trailer for their upcoming CRPG, Torment: Tides of Numenera. Check it out:

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.

All is not well though as each time he left a body, a consciousness was left in its place. Initially embracing these castoffs he eventually became indifferent to them. Making matters worse, is his cheating of death brought forth a force called the Sorrow, a being that seeks to bring balance by eradicating the Changing God and the castoffs. As the Last Castoff you will begin the game hunted by the Sorrow and it is up to you to bring resolution to this saga.


Torment may be one of the most philosophical games to come along in a long time, and players are going to be faced with some interesting and dynamic choices. It releases on February 28th, for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
