Torment: Tides of Numenera main character surrounded by beasts

Torment: Tides of Numenera is an upcoming story-focused RPG heavily inspired by Planescape: Torment. As you might expect given its pedigree, Tides of Numenera will allow you to solve your problems in a variety of ways, be that through stealth, diplomacy, or sheer brute force.

The peaceful and dialogue-heavy way of solving quests was already featured in one of the previous videos, but if diplomacy ends up failing you're going to have to take matters into your own hands... quite literally. So if you're wondering what the combat is all about, then the most recent video is for you. It doesn't really delve deep into the mechanics themselves, but it should still give you a good overview of all the various aspects of combat. Have a look:

Torment: Tides of Numenera is currently in Early Access, and with the official release set for February 28th I would recommend waiting before grabbing yourself a copy. This isn't because Tides of Numenera is bad, as you'll see in my beta review I actually think its pretty damn good, but there some annoying bugs and issues that might negatively affect your playthrough. As such, its probably for the best you let the developers first finish the game before diving in.
