Torment: Tides of Numenera

inXile Entertainment and Techland Publishing have added a variety of features since Torment: Tides of Numenera launched. Chief among these is the inclusion of an additional companion, Oom (“The Toy”).  

The additional content is as follows:

·         Oom ("The Toy" companion) – Oom is a living artefact from a prior world, and extraordinarily loyal to you. A shape-changer and guardian, it is somehow connected to the Tides, and it grants the Last Castoff a deeper connection to them. It is also a mystery to be solved. Oom does not speak, and even its thoughts are a strange tangle of alien metaphors. It will drive you to increase your understanding of the Tides, and by doing so, you will learn secrets about its long-lost past.

·         Voluminous Codex – The Ninth World is full of rich lore and characters. The Voluminous Codex will serve as an encyclopaedia of the player's travels, updating with more entries as they proceed through the game, and allowing them to learn more about the places they visit and the beings they meet.
