Owlcat Games is no stranger when it comes to the world of Pathfinder and after the wild success of the studio’s Pathfinder: Kingmaker, it’s exciting to see the amazing support the team is receiving with continuing on the amazing lore journey with Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.
With just a few more days left in the campaign, it’s not too late to throw in your support and in turn get some pretty sweet rewards! The campaign has already raised over 1.8 million dollars and is showing no signs of slowing down, so it’s just in the nick of time to jump in on the action and get more loot!
But before diving all in with that wallet, what even is Wrath of the Righteous? For those not familiar with the tabletop campaign, the devs describe the newest gaming adventure the next step for the Pathfinder franchise taking what so many loved about Kingmaker and making it even better.
Players will be able to rise to a position of power in order to combat an army of demons by choosing one of six Mythic Paths:
In addition to the Mythic Paths, players can also control five new classes with the Arcanist, Bloodrager, Shaman, Oracle, and Witch as well as meet a new race called the half-undead dhampir.
Players will then be able to go toe-to-toe with powerful Demon Lords in an effort to shut off access between the Abyss and the world we live in. According to the game’s Kickstarter: “Enjoy the flexibility, richness, and depth of the Pathfinder first edition ruleset. Create any character imaginable by choosing one of ten races, picking a particular class out of the 21 available, each with five archetypes for even greater customization. Gain access to more than a thousand spells, feats, and abilities, and select those that suit your playstyle. Take control of your party formation, help set up a camp, and find a way to victory by combining the strengths of your companions.”
The ability to enjoy this massive non-linear story is being made even more immersive with a “new strategic layer of gameplay” where players can lead the powerful Fifth Crusade armies as the Commander to defeat numerous foes and uncover ancient artifacts.
Right now, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is only coming to PC through Steam and GOG but the team did mention that they were open to other platforms further down the line! Ready to contribute? Check out the official Kickstarter right here before it’s too late! The campaign ends on March 11th!
