Torment: Tides of Numenera - Legacy Edition includes:
You are born falling from orbit, a new mind in a body once occupied by the Changing God, a being who has cheated death for millennia. If you survive, your journey through the Ninth World will only get stranger... and deadlier.
With a host of strange companions - whose motives and goals may help or harm you - you must escape an ancient, unstoppable creature called the Sorrow and answer the question that defines your existence: What does one life matter?

Torment Tides of Numenera shares many similarities to Planescape Torment, you take control of a character that you can not customize voice or appearance wise (you can choose gender in this game), your character is pretty much immortal, and much of the game will be spent reading and dealing with different moral and philosophical ways of handling problems and finding out about who and what you are. In many ways the game improves on Planescape by switching to turn based combat which allows for more strategic options and more tactical encounters, removes the mobs of easily killable enemies and allows you to play through the game without fighting at all, dying takes you into an area of your mind where you can find new things to do, and the way that the skills and abilities work in Numenera (though the tabletop rules aren't copied for everything) are more fitting to a text and exploration heavy game like this. The world of Numenera is as interesting as a place to explore as Planescape, and it was created by some of the same people behind the Planescape setting. You can take three companions with you out of a total of six, though two refuse to be in a party together, and all are good characters, their abilities can be used for conversations and actions, they will have things to say during conversations, detailed backstories, and their actions can aid you by leading to different outcomes for certain situations. There are different ways to complete quests, things that can affect later events, and your choice of companions will make the game easy to replay to see different outcomes. If you were a fan of Planescape Torment, if you like the setting of Numenera, or just want a well-written RPG then this will likely be one of the best games released this year. The Legacy Edition includes the game's soundtrack which is of the high-quality people have likely come to expect from games of this style (Pillars of Eternity, Icewind Dale, Baldurs Gate, etc) and the included Novellas are also a good edition that can expand on the game's world. The other additions aren't that interesting but if you want to supported the developers and a great game and are interested in reading more about the world and characters this can be a good purchase.
