Owlcat Games announces that the highly anticipated Kickstarter campaign for its classic isometric CRPG, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, has launched today. In celebration, the studio is happy to share an exciting video showcasing for the first time an animated cutscene and pre-alpha gameplay footage. Based on Paizo’s famous tabletop RPG and the adventure path of the same name, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is estimated to arrive June 2021 for PC Windows via Steam and GOG. Details on the game’s three new Mythic Paths, new classes, and a new race have also been revealed.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is an epic adventure in which players rise to power as one of six Mythic character types: the benevolent Angel, the ravaging Demon, the powerful Lich, the cunning Trickster, the lawful Aeon, and the rebellious Azata. Every choice made during the adventure will allow players to align themselves with a specific Mythic Path. Becoming one of these unique beings greatly impacts the main narrative, grants distinct abilities and affects a character’s appearance.
The new Mythic Paths revealed today include the Aeon, a cosmic judge of balance that can travel to the past; the Demon, an impulsive creature on the verge of losing its self-control; and the Azata, a champion of the innocent and unstoppable force of good. Players may ignore these celestial powers and become a Legend—a mortal who doesn’t need help from any deity to inspire people and destroy the demon lords.
“Our Kickstarter campaign will allow our team to flesh out each Mythic Path with exclusive story branches and abilities that influence the game world,” says Alexander Mishulin, Creative Director of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. “It will also allow us to produce more content like new classes, races, and companions.”
In addition to the classes introduced in Kingmaker, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will allow players to choose from the following five new classes: the Arcanist, Bloodrager, Shaman, Oracle, and Witch. They may also play as a new race of half-undead mortals called dhampirs. The number of archetypes per class will increase to five.
Additional details regarding Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous‘ Mythic Paths, new features, and crowdfunding goals can be found at the game’s Kickstarter page. The campaign will run until March 11.
