Torment: Tides of Numenera release is not too far away, and developers continue to publish videos about different gameplay mechanics. This time it’s combat, which you can evade in most of the situations. But if you are a little unlucky or made a bad decision, bloodshed needed to be done. In this case, you gain full control over your party members and their special powers. Maybe, you’ll even be able to persuade enemy to resolve situation peacefully – developers made some characters available to talk to even in the middle of combat.

Not the least role in combat is devoted to Cyphers – this one-time use devices hold some great unique powers. But you must be careful – main hero can have only limited amount of them, and if you exceed it, bad thing can happen. They range from stats reduction to great explosion – not the best way to die.

If you are dead in battle, in Torment: Tides of Numenera this is not the end – you can go through the mazes of your sub consciousness, return to life and even become stronger in the process. Isn’t this great?

Torment: Tides of Numenera will release on February 28th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
