Planescape: Torment gets an Enhanced Edition

Planescape: Torment

It’s no secret that I think that Planescape: Torment is the greatest game ever made. The writing, storytelling, and characters are peerless and incomparable. I’m super, duper excited to tell you now that the greatest game ever is going to become even greater. Beamdog just announced Planescape: Torment – Enhanced Edition. Check out the launch trailer below:

If you’ve never heard of, or played Torment before, here’s a summary of the game and what it’s about:

“What can change the nature of a man?”

You are the Nameless One, a hulking figure covered in scars and tattoos collected over the course of countless lives—none of which you can remember, but are now coming back to haunt you. You are prodded awake by Morte, a floating skull and keeper of secrets, to embark on an adventure taking the Nameless One from the dirty streets of Sigil into the mysterious Outer Planes and even into the depths of Hell itself.

An Enhanced Experience of the Planes

The Enhanced Edition features the following key improvements:

  • Enhanced Planescape: Chris Avellone, Lead Designer on Planescape Torment, has partnered with Beamdog to curate gameplay updates, bug fixes, and enhancements to best capture his original vision for the game.
  • Remastered Music: The full Planescape: Torment soundtrack has been remastered in-game to add more depth to Sigil and the multiverse.
  • 4K Interface: Sigil has never looked this good! The interface of Planescape: Torment has been rebuilt in high definition with tons of new convenience features.
  • A Planescape For Today: The Enhanced Edition includes modern features such as tab highlighting, area zooming, combat log, quickloot, and more!

Additionally, for the first time, Planescape: Torment is going to be playable on tablets! You can now explore the streets of Sigil and the Nine Hells, philosophise with demons, and negotiate with a world-ending colossus on your morning commute.
