inXile Entertainment and Techland revealed today the latest trailer for their upcoming, highly-anticipated science-fantasy RPG Torment: Tides of Numenera, the thematic successor to one of the most critically revered and in-depth CRPGs of all time.

According to the press release:
“A billion years in the future a man discovered a way to cheat death. A seeker of knowledge and wisdom, his ultimate goal was to leave an unforgettable mark on the world. In his quest for everlasting legacy, he discovered ancient technology – the Numenera – that allowed him to transfer his consciousness to a body of his own design.

It is at this point that the dramatic events of your birth unfold and your story to answer who you are, and what your legacy might be, begins…”
Torment: Tides of Numenera releases on February 28th!
