A new roleplaying game (RPG) has launched on the Xbox One today that could satisfy gamers looking for something a bit different. Named Torment: Tides of Numenera, the game is set in a world that’s part science fiction and part fantasy and boasts a branching story tree which adds consequence to the usual RPG dialog boxes. Here's the official game description:
Explore Earth one billion years in the future in the science-fantasy setting of Numenera. Discover the Ninth World built on the bones of extinct, hyper-advanced civilizations and leave your own mark on it. Make thousands of essential choices, face the consequences, and meet death incarnated as you seek the answer to the ultimate question: What does one life matter? Torment: Tides of Numenera is a thematic successor to one of the greatest RPGs ever created. The new game explores similar deep and personal themes of life, mortality, and sacrifice, challenging players to take intellectual stances and make moral decisions.
