Torment: Tides of Numenera will be releasing at long last tomorrow, on Feb. 28, 2017! We've prepared this handy-dandy pre-release FAQ for those of you looking for more info.
When’s Torment coming out?
February 28th, 2017. It’ll be on Windows, Mac, Linux, PS4 and Xbox One!
As a backer, how do I get my game key?
You can go to your backer Rewards page on the Torment web site (https://torment.inxile-entertainment.com/user/private/rewards). Look for the “Manage Keys” button under your reward package that includes the game, and you will be able to claim a key.
When are GOG keys available?
GOG are now be available on the backer web site under your rewards! When you claim your Torment key you will get an option for a Steam or GOG key. Note that you will not be able to download the game using GOG until the 28th.
I already took my Steam key to play Early Access, but I want to switch to GOG. Is that possible?
Yes! We will have an option to exchange your Steam key for a GOG key soon.
Do Steam Early Access versions of the game auto-update to the final version?
Absolutely! If you have the Steam Early Access version of Torment, it will auto-update to the release build on the 28th.
Will I be able to continue pledging towards the game?
Pledges towards Torment will no longer be possible on the release date.
Where can I buy the game?
You will be able to find Torment on Steam, GOG, and other digital stores. For consoles, you will be able to find it in stores as well as digitally.
Will my Steam Early Access saves keep working in the final release?
Any saves made after the Tidal Surge update in December should work with the final release! However, any save files from earlier versions (before the Tidal Surge update) are not likely to work, or will experience significant bugs. If you want the most stable possible experience, we advise you to start a new game.
Will save files work across operating systems?
Save files made on PC platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux) should work regardless of the operating system. Console save files (Xbox One or PS4) will only work on that particular console platform.
What languages can I play in?
Torment will support English, French, German, Spanish, Polish and Russian. Of those, English and Polish will also have voice-over support (other languages are text-only).
Will the game have controller support on PC?
Yep! You will be able to play with an Xbox One, PS4, or Steam Controller if you wish.
Digital Goods Questions
Where do I get my digital goodies?
These will be made available on the Torment backer web site, listed under your “Downloads” button under your rewards.
Will my Steam or GOG version include my digital extras?
We're looking into this!
Will every backer reward be available by release?
Most of them! The Concept Art Book, Strategy Guide, Original Soundtrack by Mark Morgan, Pat Rothfuss' digital comic book, all the currently released novellas, and more, will all be available on or very shortly after release.
A few digital rewards, such as Colin McComb’s novella and Planescape: Torment Let’s Play, and the remaining digital comic books, are in production, but didn't quite make it for release. We are working to get those ready as soon as we can and will keep you updated on their status.
I saw some preorder DLC items in stores. Do backers get those?
Yes they do! All our backers get those items on PC.
