Torment: Tides of Numenera now delayed until 2017 for Linux, Mac and PC

Torment: Tides of Numenera now delayed until 2017 for Linux, Mac and PC

Torment: Tides of Numenera the Kickstarter-funded RPG from #InXileEntertainment. Hence expected to release for Linux, Mac and Windows PC, is now rescheduled to release in the first quarter of 2017. InXile just #announced the #details yesterday on Kickstarter.

Up to this point InXile had been working on a late 2016 release, where CEO Brian Fargo outlined in Kickstarter update that “we could crunch and rush to get the game out around November.” Now it seems that doing so “would lead to a less polished game,” affecting the localization work that is currently going on with InXile.

Torment: Tides of Numenera has also grown to around 1 million words – bigger than the Bible – and we feel that getting a good quality translation of such a deep narrative experience is very important for a large percentage of our players. Therefore, we will be turning to professional localization services to achieve the best experience possible. With the game content complete, we have already begun locking down our text and breaking it into batches for localization, so progress is already being made,” says Fargo in the update. Aside from localizing the text, InXile is working on the game’s systems, artwork, quests and such.

InXile pushed back the release of Torment: Tides of Numenera at previous occasions, including the game’s $4.19 million Kickstarter campaign, when the studio outlined the project would miss the original launch date of December 2014 by “a few months.” Then in June 2014, InXile delayed Torment to late 2015 in October, then studio said the game would arrive in 2016. And in all technicality, it is here and fully plyable, but still in Early Access with no Linux build in sight.

“We know it’s frustrating to wait a little longer, but we’ve come this far. I remember the pain of moving the release of Baldur’s Gate 1 effectively into January in much the same way, but that ended up being the right move and we all know how fondly it is remembered today. These types of trade-offs are never easy, but from day one it’s been our goal to make Torment: Tides of Numenera the masterpiece you deserve,” said Fargo.

To make-good for the delay, InXile released Torment: Tides of Numenera‘s existing beta version yesterday to all Kickstarter backers, those that contributed at that level which included a copy of the game.

To go along with the digital versions on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Torment: Tides of Numenera will be available at retail worldwide thanks to Techland Publishing. The first game Torment: Tides of Numenera has announced for its new Techland Publishing label. The boxed retail product “will be enhanced with a number of physical and digital bonuses that will ease players into the unique world of Numenera and further increase their immersion in the story,” outlined Techland in a press release.

The final push against the alien invasion commences with the #action #racer The Collider 2 #launched on Steam this week. In this high-stakes game of reflexes, players will attempt to destroy a colossal mothership looming over the planet. With a fleet of high-tech starfighters at their disposal, players take on a series of near-suicidal missions to destroy the alien invader from the inside. They will take down reactors, collect sensitive data, and avoid lethal defenses all while maneuvering through the vents of the enemy vessel at near light-speed velocity.

Collider 2 and Linux?

We just tried installing Collider 2 on Linux, so there is an active build, but “missing executable”. Given that this is a Techland release, we expect to see a full native release soon.

The Collider 2 launched this week on Steam for $9.99 / €9.99 / £6.99 with full VR support included.

No offical word yet whether a Linux release will be available at launch.
Techland did release Dying Light for Linux and Windows PC, so being that Unreal Engine 4 is being used for The Collider 2 development, odds are we should see a native release.
Not to mention the original Collider was released for Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

The Collider 2 will be available on Steam April 19th. Stay tuned for more details.
