Oh, autumn. I think the weather is crunchy leaves, snug jumpers, and you’ll want to relax with a good tabletop RPG, or a digital adaptation of a tabletop RPG. Owlcat Games looks forward to my ideal autumn night by giving Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous a September 2 release date. Kickstarter backers are now also available in a second beta, so they can try out some new quests and systems before the game is fully released.
The game is based on the Pathfinder desktop adventure of the same name, inviting players into a world where humans and demons are fighting. This is an indirect sequel to the 2018 isometric RPG Pathfinder: Kingmaker.
Wrath Of The Righteous was crowdfunded on Kickstarter last year, raising a whopping $ 2,054,339 (£ 1.6 million). After all, people certainly love Pathfinders-except for those who wrote our Pathfinder: Kingmaker review, they’re in lore (a concept I probably don’t understand because I’m a lore monster) I thought it was full.
Kickstarter backers now have access to the second beta version of the game on Steam. If you played in the first beta, you should be able to update that file to play the new beta. You can play the first four chapters of the game, try out new side quests, see the new weather system, play with dinosaur pets, and test the Crusades gameplay. The Crusaders system is important for this type of sequel, where players can lead parties, recruit troops, or send troops to fight across the world map.
Keep in mind that the developers are buggy and unsophisticated in some places, as the beta emphasizes that it’s still an unfinished version of the game.
Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous will be available on PC via Steam and GOG on September 2nd.
