Torment: Tides of Numenera beta starts later this month

In a Kickstarter update InXile Entertainment have announced that the beta for the upcoming Torment: Tides of Numenera will be starting January 17th. It will also hit Steam Early Access on January 26th.

"The beta will start you right in the beginning of the game and is quite lengthy for an early beta. It covers the game's introductory sequence (some of which you may have already seen a portion of in the alpha) as well as most of the first major location of the game, Sagus Cliffs. Sagus is a very old city that was built on top of ancient structures that predate the return of humanity to the Ninth World. It's split into five main districts: Circus Minor, Cliff's Edge, Caravanserai, Government Square and the Underbelly. As you might expect from a city location, it is rich in lore to discover, characters to talk with and obviously quests to complete!"

While I did back the game on Kickstarter, it was not at a tier that granted beta access. Too bad they didn't do what they did with Wasteland 2, giving everyone beta access. That was fun. I never actually played the original Planescape: Torment this is designed to be the spiritual successor of, but I love me some RPG goodness and this game looks set to deliver.
