inXile Studios have released their long, long-gestating CRPG, Torment: Tides of Numenera.

A "spiritual" successor to the greatest CRPG ever made, Planescape: Torment (1999), Tides of Numenera is set in Monte Cook's Dying Earth/Book of the New Sun-inspired pen-and-paper RPG setting, Earth a billion years in the future where technology and magic have become indistinguishable. Colin McComb, one of the creative geniuses behind the Planescape D&D setting and a writer on Planescape: Torment, is one of the lead designers on the new game. Chris Avellone, the creative lead of Planescape: Torment, also contributed quests and prose to the new game, as has bestselling fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss.

So far Torment: Tides of Numenera has wracked up some excellent reviews. It is available now on PC, X-Box One and PlayStation 4.
