Torment: Tides of Numenera, the role playing game currently in development by inXile Entertainment, has been in development for some time and it finally be released this year. If you really cannot wait to play the game, you will be happy to know that Torment: Tides of Numenera will be hitting Steam Early Access later this month.
With a new update on the Torment: Tides of Numenera Kickstarter page, the team confirmed that Torment: Tides of Numenera will be hitting Steam Early Access on January 26th, with eligible backers having the ability to access the beta a few days earlier, from January 17th.
inXile Entertainment has also shared some details on the Torment: Tides of Numenera beta hitting Early Access. According to the team, the beta will allow players to experience the beginning of the full game and explore a variety of locations, including the first major location of the game, Sagus Cliffs.
The beta will start you right in the beginning of the game and is quite lengthy for an early beta. It covers the game's introductory sequence (some of which you may have already seen a portion of in the alpha) as well as most of the first major location of the game, Sagus Cliffs. Sagus is a very old city that was built on top of ancient structures that predate the return of humanity to the Ninth World. It's split into five main districts: Circus Minor, Cliff's Edge, Caravanserai, Government Square and the Underbelly. As you might expect from a city location, it is rich in lore to discover, characters to talk with and obviously quests to complete!
Torment: Tides of Numenera will be released sometime this year on Steam. The game will hit Early Access later this month, on January 26th.
