Good news for those that have been loving Kingmaker as it has evolved over the year; it looks like we are now poised to get Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous out there in the similar vein of it all. Yes, a new adventure path for the IP in digital form is coming as Owlcat Games looks to another of the tabletop adventure paths to bring over to the PC. There are so many that they could take form the Pathfinder IP that we could see these kinds of games flowing out for so many years, and now we know the next in the list. Even if it is all about fighting a war with Angels and Demons, I am sure it will not be overshadowed by other titles that are coming out too…
While it will use most of the features from Pathfinder: Kingmaker we have grown to love, certain parts will be stripped away and other things added in. Obviously, the kingdom stuff will not be overly important here but we will also be seeing various new classes joining the likes of the past ones. So far, we have word that the Witch and Oracle will be joining in to help us fight the forces from the Abyss. A location we can look forward to visiting at some point in the game. Not to mention that we will have a few paths we can walk down with one being a bit more on the Necromantic side. This pleases me greatly.
Given that development is still early on Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous, there is not much more to go on as the team is looking to convert this over into the digital space. Thankfully, it looks like they are bringing back the director and writers from the previous game to help shape this one into the same adventure path you may have already experienced but adding to it yet again. Something that many adaptations generally do not get in a meaningful way. More so when the writers for the tabletop Pathfinder are in the mix and know what should be going on the whole time. It looks like things are shaping up well.
Developer Owlcat Games is proud to announce Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous, a classic isometric CRPG game. Based on the adventure path of the same name, it follows in the footsteps of the previous digital adaptation of Paizo’s legendary tabletop RPG, Pathfinder. The first key art image of the game has been released as a teaser of things to come for the title.
While not a direct sequel to Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous will expand and elaborate on the core elements that made Owlcat’s previous installment successful. New features include the mythic progression system, a new corner of the award-winning Age of Lost Omens setting to explore, and more classes and character customizations drawn from Pathfinder's extensive history. Owlcat will be releasing more details as development progresses so that fans can stay caught up on how the process evolves over time.
Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous is based on the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path from the tabletop game but includes new characters, plots, and elements to entertain even players already familiar with the adventure. It tells the story of a large-scale conflict between mortals and demons where players are invited to immerse themselves in a world under siege from demonic forces. As a vicious invasion threatens the world, the consequences of one’s decisions will forge a unique narrative of their personal battle between good and evil.
Kingmaker’s Creative Director Alexander Mishulin and Lead Writer Alexander Komzolov return to their respective roles, and Owlcat is happy to confirm that Chris Avellone is back on board lending a hand and supporting the narrative team as he did with Pathfinder: Kingmaker.
To stand against the demonic invasion, the player character and their companions will receive additional powers from the player’s chosen mythic path. These paths vary widely in nature and profoundly impact the storyline of the game, permanently changing the characters and the world around them. Players may choose the path of the immortal lich, wielding powerful spells and commanding an army of undead; the path of the trickster, causing mischief and finding fun even in the middle of the demon-filled abyss; the path of the angel, summoning celestial allies into battle and meting bolts of divine judgment upon foes; or something else entirely.
Some Pathfinder RPG character classes that didn’t make it into Kingmaker will make their CRPG debut in Wrath Of The Righteous alongside the returning roster, including — but not limited to — the fan-favorite Witch and Oracle. More classes and character options will be revealed in the near future.
Boasting an improved visual style, Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous will offer a look and feel distinct from that of Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Set in locations including a demon-infested wasteland, besieged crusader cities, and the foul, twisted Abyss itself, Wrath Of The Righteous’s art will capture the epic fight of the world’s defenders as they struggle to hold the line against the corrupting force of otherworldly entities.
Are you excited to be getting another fun Pathfinder experience after Kingmaker or did you get soured on the previous experience?

Could this be the start of many more and all of the tabletop game to be brought over for video gamers? Let us know what you are thinking down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. When we have more to offer up for Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous, we will have it all here. Just be sure to keep coming back for all of that and much more.
