      I have been trying to find a release time for the game tomorrow, but have been unable to find one. So could one of you nice, handsome and competent inXile staff tell me? Any timezone is fine (as log as it's stated), I can convert =)

      How do I go about claiming my GoG code?

      I will never play your game till you fix your God Damn Portraits you stupid Liberals!

      There is no reason for you to change those portraits. In fact the only two that work are the main characters and Aligern. The rest are complete and total trash! not only that they almost all look the same. I am going to have to wait till people create mods so I can remove your lack of vision from a game that was supposed to be the Planescape Torment! does that look like your in game characters?

      Does that look like Callistege in the game? No Callistege in the game looks like some old African or some Old Gypsy idiot with things in her hair.

      The character looks horrible!

      and my God what is the deal with all the hand holding in the beginning of this game. It's bad enough that you reveal tons of lore that practically takes away the mystery but you treat the player like F##cking moron!

      Seriously, the ONLY reason something like Baldur's Gate or Planescape:Torment even COULD exist is because they were PC GAMES and not shitty console drones. Seriously, the things aren't that powerful, PCs have the exact same features(plus thousands more) and a modestly priced PC is already more powerful than the upgraded versions of the new consoles. Consoles have killed more of my favourite game series and developers than I care to think about. Sure, I own some, but given the chance to play a game built with a keyboard and mouse in mind or a controller... no questions. And why are so many backers even PS4 fanboys? How did you guys put down Uncharted 7 long enough to see a PC-centric spiritual successor to a wholly PC-only, console-unfriendly game like Torment was having a Kickstarter?!

      Rant done. Seeing as how people spew hate on Kickstarter pages (normally at the developers) I decided to get in on the fun. Hope the PS4 Pro and X-Bone S have a massive recall because they turn their users sterile.

    5. PegasusOrgans-AGL 589 on

      Who backs a spiritual successor, or actual sequel, to a hardcore PC RPG and then expects a console version?! I'm not emailing Nintendo demanding to play Mario on my PC. Why? BECAUSE CERTAIN GAMES BELONG ON CERTAIN PLATFORMS. Why not demand a 3DS version while you're at it?? Hell, nowadays, using a controller w/ a PC is so easy, that it blows my mind people still say this nonsense.

      I play most games on consoles nowadays and if there was an option for a PS4 copy I would have selected it when I backed. With Wasteland 2 there was a long delay between the PC version and the eventual console port, so I was fine with buying the console version afterwards, but if Torment is going to have simultaneous release on console and PC, I'd like to be able to trade my PC backer key towards a PS4 copy, even if it meant paying in a little extra. Please let us know?

    7. TomP on

      I would prefer my key on ps4. Any news on that please?

    8. Paul Bransford on

      It really stinks that we have to choose between GOG and Steam. Why not allow both? GOG is already hooked in to steam and is adding duplicated items as they can, why can't this be one of them? (they call it "GOG Connect")

      Here's another backer interested in switching to a PS4 version. I'd be willing to throw in some more money to that end, if required. My pledge included a version of Wasteland 2 but I ended up purchasing the PS4 version anyway, I just really prefer playing on console when possible.

    10. Matthias on

      there is also the question why there haven't been an update about the console versions before. would have been great to be able to upgrade to a console version...

    11. Matthias on

      @Jack Hepburn Raine: I hope so too. but on the other hand we had it before, that non-backers were able to buy the early access version whereas collectors-backers had to wait because there was no alpha/beta included in that level... I hope it's not the same here, that the CE for non-backers is somewhat better than the version for backers.

    12. Jack Hepburn Raine on

      @MsDemeaner asked same question earlier but they missed that one out when replying, im sure this is the version we will get if backed at that level or an even better version, as they wont want to loose us as backers for POE2 which we have had surveys about.

      I will buy a ps4 version just to have one.
      I need to a video demonstrating the banter between characters. The banter that made Planescape Torment so famous. Mort, the sucubbus, half demon theif etc.
      Your pr is strange.

    14. Maxime Girard on

      Grats on finally seeing a light at the end of a long and adventurous tunnel. :)

      Tis not always easy to work on a crowdfunded project. May this journey bring you more glorious opportunities to share your love of stories and we'll built universes.

    15. MsDemeaner on

      So what is the story here?
      I see items included in the retail version not listed in the Kickstarter CE contents (Traveller Book, Statue. Steelcase). None of these items seem to be listed in any backer lists.
      Will these be included in the KS CE as well? How is the KS CE different from the Retail?
      Why has this not been communicated before? I really hope that those of us that backed this at the Collectors level aren't going to be shafted here!
      Some information please, and soon! I am a little concerned.

      WOOHOO!!! Can't wait to play it !!!

      awesome news.

    18. Maria Adelaide Borromeo

      I also would like to know if the Mac version is coming at the same time, and if I can switch my key to the PS4 version...

    19. They_Called_Him_The_Sans on

      @inXile, I'd once again like to ask you about Mac version of the game...

      have you guys made up with the Codex?

    21. inXile entertainment 3-time creator on

      Hey all, thanks for your questions!

      - Beta update: still coming, we hope to have that available soon!

      - Localized versions: yes, they are coming on final release, you won't need to wait for an update to play them!

      - Console copies for backers: we will let you know if we have any news there!

    22. alcaray on

      Wow, tough crowd!

    23. The Pie Scientist on

      So how about update the beta that was promised to be incrementally updated and not a shit alpha?

      The fact that you have not done makes it look like you have something to hide.

    24. Will Griffith on

      I would love to switch my key to a console as well if that is ever an option.

    25. Muad'Dib on

      Can i still get a refund?
      With all the things that happened (console downgrade, political agenda of McComb, Techland and RPG Codex, Fig), i am no longer interested in the game nor do i want to support inXile.

    26. AGN1964 on

      Thanks guys. I did not think about tracking achievements.

    27. LordCrash on

      What about localized versions? Will they be released on February 28th, 2017 as well or just the English version?

      You should have made it Feb 29, 2017 to troll us. Looking forward to the release.

      GOG is a fine way to house your game collection.

      If you think you might miss the Steam community, then bear in mind two things: 1) there is a perfectly fine GOG community, and 2) the Steam community is just a website that you can visit if you want to, whether you bought the game from Steam or not (we frequently get Steam slummers visiting our GOG boards).

      As far as achievements are concerned, GOG has a way to make them happen. It is a question of getting the developer and GOG staff to spend the time to make them work. It is possible that they will have achievements up and running on day one or there might be a 6 month delay or ???

    31. Stefan >> DEXYD << on

      so I checked my account (for the first time in 2 years or so) to see if my shipping adress was right.
      What is with the 3011 points I seem to have?

    32. Jack Hepburn Raine on

      I take it this collectors box with the statue etc in is what some backers will get?

      There isn't any downside with GOG version. You are using game on you own - without Steam and other knowing that. But if you like steam statistics, achievements, community and tracking - go for it ;)

    34. Runeweaver – Tormented Teacher of WoOS on

      …and there was much rejoicing \o/. My anticipation is over 9000!
      Haven't seen anything of the game so far, other than some *tiny* snippets and screen shots (like the start of the game, where you can apparently die before even staring properly). Really don't want to spoil *anything*.
      And as far as that delay's concerned... the Sagrada Familia *still* is unfinished ;).

    35. Adam Sherman on

      Awesome awesome awesome!

    36. Tor Iver Wilhelmsen

      Well, the game has been so long in development, in that time you probably saved up enough money to buy the console version as well. :)

    37. AGN1964 on


      What is the downside to going the GOG route? DRM-free sounds good.

    38. Kesava Hart on

      I wish I had known it was going to have a PS4 and XBox One release. I would love to upgrade from my steam version to PS4 or XBox one.

      +1 for switching key to console, considering the 2 years delay and many of us backers have changed the gaming platform.

    45. Streamjumper on

      Add my voice to the chorus wanting to know if we'll be able to request a console code rather than Steam. A lot of us don't play PC as much as we used to and would like the option to get the game on our choice of platform (in my case, the Xbox One) which was unavailable to us at the get go. While some might argue that we signed up for the PC version, it can also be pointed out that we were signing up for a game due years ago which had no distribution partnership.

      Good luck for the final stretch.

      I'd love to switch my boxed collector's edition to PS4 format if possible.

    49. Kate Genuist on

      Same here, years later (cough cough) I no longer game on the Mac. I would like to ask for the ability to deactivate a Steam Key and switch to a PS4 console key. I'll even pay the difference if there is one.

    50. Weresheep of Sin AKA Stefan

      Looking at what I can play at the moment on Steam and what I'm expecting from a finished release product ... I hope your internal build is light years ahead of what's on Steam.
