Torment: Tides of Numenera “Servant of the Tides” update adds new companion and enhances the encyclopaedia
From Press Release Email:
inXile Entertainment and Techland Publishing, has announced the release of new content additions that fans have been clamouring for since Torment: Tides of Numenera launched earlier this year. Chief among these features is the inclusion of an additional companion, Oom (“The Toy”).
The additional content is as follows:
- Oom (“The Toy” companion) – 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 cRPGs in gaming history, this science-fantasy RPG explores similar deep and personal topics of abandonment, evanescence, and the legacy we all leave behind. Torment: Tides of Numenera takes place on Earth one billion years in the future, in the rich and diverse Numenera setting created by pen and paper RPG luminary, Monte Cook. Players will experience a game of intricate choices and consequences with thousands of meaningful decisions that will make every playthrough unique.
Torment: Tides of Numenera is available worldwide on PC and for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system as well as Xbox One.
