Due to problems with shipping, the physical release of Torment: Tides of Numenera in Australia has been delayed.
In an email to press earlier this morning, it was revealed that the retail release of Torment has been pushed back to March 15 for all platforms. The reason was due to problems getting stock from Europe into Australia, Kotaku Australia understands.
The delay won’t affect digital copies of the game, and the game’s retail release overseas is believed to be unaffected at this time. “This difficult decision has been made to ensure that all fans have their full access to boxed copies of the Standard, Day One, and Collector’s Edition, including both physical and digital bonuses that come with the game,” a statement said.
Torment: Tides of Numenera will launch digitally for Australians on March 1 on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4 and Xbox One. The game will ship with controller support on PC as well, and those who were playing the game throughout Early Access will be able to continue their saves without issue provided they were made after the Tidal Surge update in December. (InXile advises starting a new game for the most “stable possible experience”, however.)
