Torment: Tides of Numenera
This successor in name only to Planescape: Torment will take place in Monte Cook's Numenera, which was Kickstarted with a huge success in 2012. As the planescape universe can not be used, none of its characters will make an appearance either.
Numenera is set a billion years in the future. Civilizations have risen and fallen on Earth. Even though the current inhabitants live at about a Medieval level of technology, the leftover remnants of these advanced societies lie all around them. Some of these are extremely helpful: advanced tools, valuable means of communication and learning, transportation, defenses, and weapons. Others are dangerous: genetically altered monstrosities, flesh-warping radiation, creatures transplanted from distant stars, and clouds of out-of-control nanobots, just to name a few. This setting, called the Ninth World, provides all manner of opportunities and challenges to those that call it home.
The details of the game itself will be made known in the near future.
