Fans of Infinity Engine-style RPGs should be aware that Torment: Tides of Numenera, the 'spiritual successor' to the excellent Planescape Torment, is being released for Mac, PC and Linux systems at the end of this month.
You must gather your party before venturing forth.

Kickstarted this but waiting for the inevitable Director's Cut.  Besides, I have to get through Blood & Wine, Pillars of Eternity: White March, and Wasteland 2 first...

Fortunately this is also releasing for the PlayStation 4 so I have it wish listed for that.

I'm kind of surprised they are releasing it for consoles. I wouldn't think such a text-heavy game world work well on a TV.

Bigger text. That said, I am overdue for new glasses and console gaming has made this painfully evident at times when I have to sit up to see better when initially learning the controls for games.

Wasteland 2 and Divinity: Original Sin are available for consoles too. I read something the other day about Path of Exile coming to PS4 also. Wasteland 3 is planned for consoles. Divinity 2 is an unknown as far as I can tell for now but hopefully the first game did well and it will make it's way to consoles as well.

Lots of RPG goodness and it is very cool to see so much to choose from. Pillars of Etenity is notably absent from the list unfortunately however.

Do we know a DC is comming? Because then I'll also wait.

So far my favorite game to come from Kickstarter has been Divinity: Original Sin, and the "DC" of that changed quite a few things.

No, but DLC definitely is (they had to cut stretch goals. Any DLC will be free for Kickstarter backers.) Wasteland 2 had one, so I'd say the odds are good.

Should one have played Planescape: Torment before getting into this one?

No, it's not a sequel, but what they call a spiritual successor. The setting is completely different, but it shares some themes and ideas with PS:T.

What Janichsan said, but also: you should play it anyway. One of the best games ever made.
