Pathfinder: Kingmaker Is Bringing A Definitive Edition To Consoles


Pathfinder fans will soon be able to explore the definitive edition of Pathfinder: Kingmaker over on the PS4 and Xbox One this August

The time is finally here, as console gamers are going to get a chance to finally sink their teeth into Pathfinder: Kingmaker with a release of the game on August 18th over on the PS4 and Xbox One. Only about two years after Owlcat Games and Deep Silver brought it to the PC. There is no shame in that at all, just that console gamers had to wait and are now getting a definitive edition for Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Yes, that means all of the usual upgrades and DLC additions that the PC gamers had, but it looks like there will be a bit more. In fact, there is going to be a new feature mixed in that I wished was in the original release.

Shifting this style of game from the PC to console was going to have a bit of an issue with the control scheme but in this version of Pathfinder: Kingmaker we are getting a true turn-based system added in on top of the original pause system that they implemented. I have a feeling this is why the upcoming Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous is going to have that mixed in the base game and I could not be more excited. That and the ability to go back and replay all of the DLC campaigns and the core one to try to build that perfect kingdom that I have yet to be able to build sitting around a table with dice.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker — Definitive Edition

Pathfinder: Kingmaker takes players on tour through the infamous Stolen Lands, the dangerous and turbulent territories well known within Pathfinder fandom. The computer RPG revisits familiar characters and well-known locations of the "series" lore and treats players to brand new adventures, deadly foes, and unforeseen twists and turns. Fans of the fantasy pen-and-paper RPG will experience its epic, heroic universe in new ways while computer RPG gamers will discover their favorite genre in a more contemporary light, in stunning 3D graphics that bring the universe to life.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker will challenge players as both adventurers and rulers as they claim explored lands and carve their kingdom from the wilderness. Kingdom founding goes beyond simple stronghold-building to become a true reflection of the hero’s character and choices made throughout the game. Each kingdom is a living thing shaped by alignment, choices, allies, and the hero’s ability to lead his or her people.

The Definitive Edition features all previously released DLCs:

  • The Wildcards: Intrepid explorers of The Stolen Lands can discover a new playable race the Tieflings, harness the power of a newly playable class Kineticists, and booster their party with the companion the Tiefling Kineticist, who brings her own and rich, engaging storyline.
  • Varnhold’s Lot: Just as you were claiming your first title, another hero of the Stolen Lands became a baron too: Maegar Varn, captain of the Varnling Host mercenary band and rightful ruler of Varnhold. In this DLC, you join Varn as his general, and experience Varnhold’s valorous history first-hand. Playing a full new storyline that runs parallel to the main story, players will import the results of this adventure to their main story, facing the consequences of their choices when moving forward with their main party and storyline.
  • Beneath The Stolen Lands: Beneath The Stolen Lands, valiant adventurers meet with the self-proclaimed protector of Golarion and discover what secrets lie buried beneath the Stolen Lands, in a shifting labyrinth of madness where nothing is what it seems as they defend the lands against one of the most deadly enemies the world has ever seen. Enter the dungeon as your main character. Alternatively, you can wait for an invitation from a mysterious protector of Golarion as you play through the main story. The pre-set version of the dungeon is included in the main campaign, allowing you to use your character and companions to conquer the Tenebrous Depths.
  • Bloody Mess: The name says it all – adding more blood and gore to the game as an additional option.
  • Arcane Unleashed: DLC adding more magic and spells to the game.
  • Royal Ascension: Includes Soundtrack, Digital Artbook, two in-game portraits, board game module, hi-rez map, and a red panda.
