Torment: Tides of Numenera Trailer Reveals Glaive Class

Published

 on

Techland has released a new trailer for inXile’s upcoming science-fantasy RPG coming to PS4, PC, and Xbox One next year, Torment: Tides of Numenera.

This latest video, the second in a series of three, introduces players to elite warriors of the Ninth World known as  ‘Glaives’.

Brandishing a diverse range of weaponry and offering a balance between might and speed, Glaives are  the only class that can attack twice in one turn. Glaives engage in direct combat and enjoy a high defence rating. Players looking to develop a warrior with slow and powerful attacks, capable of absorbing lots of damage, or one that relies more on speed and agility than brute force should consider making the Glaive their character of choice.

The spiritual successor to classic ’90s RPG, Planescape Torment, Torment: Tides of Numenera is the latest brain-child of renowned D&D module scribe Monte Cooke (Planescape, Labryinth of Madness).

Developers inXile are promising that Torment: Tides of Numenera will feature a large, open world to explore and innovative turn-based combat.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is currently scheduled for release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
