Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition official promo art and logo

If you ever wanted to get into oldschool PC RPGs and see why fans constantly rave about them, you're in luck as Beamdog has just recently released a remastered version of arguably the very best one - Planescape: Torment. The Enhanced Edition brings with it support for modern resolutions, numerous quality of life changes and bug fixes, a bunch of new dialogue written by Chris Avellone himself, better music quality, and the list goes on. Long story short, its the same RPG you might remember from your childhood, just slightly spruced up.

You can check out what the Enhanced Edition looks like through the recently posted launch trailer which I'll embed right below. The video unfortunately doesn't feature as much actual gameplay as you would expect, but it should still give you a good idea of what you're getting into. Have a look:

As you'll quickly learn by browsing through any of my RPG reviews I consider Planescape: Torment to be one of the best games ever made, but even so, it is important to acknowledge its flaws. While there are a variety of small issues that definitely add up over the course of a playthrough, the biggest problem with Planescape: Torment is the simple fact that combat is garbage. Its imbalanced, clunky, and more often than not simply boring, so if you were hoping for something like Fallout or Baldur's Gate I'm afraid you're out of luck. If you're in it for the story, characters and exploration, however, you'll find more than enough positives in Planescape: Torment to completely disregard its flaws.

If you would like to learn more, or just grab yourself a copy, you should head over to either the official website or Steam.
