Today, publisher Techland and developer inXile Entertainment released a new video for RPG Torment: Tides of Numenera that shows off the game’s Nano character class for the first time.

The following overview of the Nanos accompanied the trailer:

Nanos are the sorcerers of the game, blessed with the ability to alter reality to gain an advantage over other character classes. Unlike the use of magic, however, Nanos have an innate ability to tap into ancient, advanced technology (known as Numenera) left by previous civilizations. As their defensive abilities are limited Nanos should be used as ranged characters where they can read the minds of their enemies, unleash a combination of ranged attacks and warp themselves (plus fellow party members) around the battlefield to gain a strategic edge.

Techland also revealed that it will be dishing out two more Character Class videos in the next two weeks, though no future details were provided.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is slated to release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2017. You can check out the new video below:
