Backers can get it first
Torment: Tides of Numenera has been taking its time, but the beta will be out before long.
All eligible crowdfunding backers will gain access during the week of January 17, 2016 (exact date TBA). Then, on January 26, the beta will see a wider release via Steam Early Access.
InXile’s Brian Fargo describes this upcoming build as “quite lengthy for an early beta,” noting that it covers “the game’s introductory sequence (some of which you may have already seen a portion of in the alpha) as well as most of the first major location of the game, Sagus Cliffs.”
For those of you who have kept up with Torment throughout its production, are you still excited?
