Having received tremendous critical acclaim, including several perfect scores, inXile Entertainment and Techland Publishing has been hard at work to include a number of content additions that fans have been clamouring for since the long-awaited spiritual successor to Planetscape: Torment,  Torment: Tides of Numenera launched. Chief among these features is the inclusion of an additional companion. We’ve been testing out the update for several hours now and it also alleviates a lot of the stuttering the Xbox One version experienced. The additional content is as follows:

  • Oom: Oom is a living artefact from a prior world, and extraordinarily loyal to you. A shape-changer and guardian, it is somehow connected to the Tides, and it grants the Last Castoff a deeper connection to them. It is also a mystery to be solved. Oom does not speak, and even its thoughts are a strange tangle of alien metaphors. It will drive you to increase your understanding of the Tides, and by doing so, you will learn secrets about its long-lost past.
  • Voluminous Codex: The Ninth World is immense, full of rich and exciting lore and characters. The Voluminous Codex will serve as an encyclopaedia of the player’s travels, updating with more entries as they proceed through the game, and allowing them to learn more about the places they visit and the beings they meet.

Developed by the creators of the all-time classic Planescape: Torment, one of the most critically revered titles in gaming history, this science-fantasy game explores similar deep and personal topics of abandonment, evanescence, and the legacy we all leave behind. Torment: Tides of Numenera takes place on Earth 1 billion years in the future, in the rich and diverse Numenera setting created by luminary, Monte Cook. Players will experience a game of intricate choices and consequences with thousands of meaningful decisions that will make every playthrough unique.
