Torment: Tides of Numenera trailer shows off the combat-focused Glaive class

Torment Glaive

Torment: Tides of Numenera just got a new trailer showing off a combat-heavy class called the Glaive. These martial artists are the heavy and speedy hitters of developers inXile’s world.

Glaives are described as “champions of this world” who wield abilities far beyond any normal human armed with sharp steel.

You can either have your Glaive focus on Might, giving you access to the heaviest weapons and armour, or you can go for Speed and arm yourself with daggers and ranged weapons for a more rogueish build. If you don’t want to commit, a middle ground is also possible.

Glaives are a class designed for going on the offensive. “You deal the strongest attacks and can sustain the greatest damage,” the trailer says. “And you are also the only class that can attack twice in one turn.”

Check the class out in the trailer above.
