Torment: Tides of Numenera has you inhabiting the refuse body of a technomage god.
Torment: Tides of Numenera showcased its quest mechanics, combat, character classes, but so far the story has only been hinted at in previous trailers. The newest story video, which looks a whole lot like it might be the intro cinematic for the game brings you up to speed on some major starting plot points.
It's no accident that inXile is revealing more juicy story bits. Numenera's 28 February 2017 release date is just around the corner and most fans of Torment that don't already own the early access or backer version of the game will most likely care about the story more than anything else.
