Torment: Tides of Numenera developer inXile has issued an apology, following the discovery that certain stretch goals promised in the game’s have not materialised.
The discovery was made using leaked Achievements from the final game, due 28th February on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The most notable omissions include missing companions – I’ll discuss those in detail further down, underneath a statement inXile has sent me, so I can keep any potential spoilers out of the way – and no Italian language support. If you are an Italian backer and this is a deal-breaker you can now claim a refund.
But the most glaring issue is not the missing content – which some inXile staff members have tried to explain on the company’s forum and on Reddit – but that backers, people who funded the game, are only now finding out, off the back of their own detective work no less. Why didn’t inXile say something before?
