Owlcat Games has announced that the second beta for its classic isometric CRPG, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, will be available to backers who contributed to the title’s Kickstarter or Slacker Backer campaigns in the relevant tiers on May 5 via Steam. Fans who had access to the game’s first beta may simply update their file to participate in the second beta. This last playable version of the game before launch will comprise all content included in the first beta and new content like Crusade gameplay, never-before-seen side quests, a talking weapon companion, the in-game’s final UI design, and more.

The game will expand the property’s universe and immerse players in an exhilarating crusade between mortals and demons. Fans will have the opportunity to steer the conflict and choose from one of nine different Mythic Paths, each with its own unique influence on warfare.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will launch for PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store this summer. Fans may wishlist the game on their preferred platform today or pre-order at owlcatgames.com.

A New Pathfinder Comic Comes to Kickstarter!

Dynamite Entertainment and Paizo Inc. are launching a new Pathfinder comic book. It’s currently being funded on Kickstarter and live right now with lots of cool extra content for fans!

Pathfinder: Fumbus is a 40-page standalone special issue starring the riotous eponymous goblin alchemist. The mischievous goblins of Pathfinder have always been one of the iconic roleplaying game’s most signature features, but now with the new Second Edition ruleset and the added alchemist class, Fumbus takes a starring role in his pursuit to join the Pathfinder Society. With appearances from characters like Seoni, Ezren, and more, it’s a chapter not to be missed!

Writer and lifelong tabletop RPG addict Fred Van Lente has worked closely with Paizo’s creative shepherds to craft this tale alongside returning Pathfinder artist Tom Garcia. They’re joined by the vivid colors of Vinicius Townsend, and lettering of Tom Napolitano.

Just like Dynamite’s previous Pathfinder titles, this comic book comes with extra content that will entice longtime fans of the RPG, with lore and scenario writing that can translate right to one’s next game night. Six whole pages of playable content, including new alchemical and magic items, rules for trapmaking, and a character sheet and stat block for Fumbus himself.

Those same great qualities make the world a perfect fit for comics books. Dynamite has worked closely with Paizo to produce comics for nearly a decade across 11 graphic novels. Many of Paizo’s top internal creatives like Erik Mona and F. Wesley Schneider have contributed to the titles, as well as top creators in the comics industry like Jim Zub (Avengers, Conan the Barbarian), Crystal Frasier (Immortal Hulk, Cheer Up), and Carlos Gomez (Red Sonja, America Chavez). As part of the Kickstarter pledge options, fans can stock up on the previous comics as well.

For collectors, Dynamite is offering a fun glow in the dark version of Tom Garcia’s cover, as well as a limited character sheet variant. Fan-favorite artist Ken Haeser is also doing sketch covers and remark sketches. Those looking for the ultimate Pathfinder haul can turn to the deluxe set, which comes packed with an exclusive custom D20 die, CGC graded copies of the comics, a character trading card, a set of graphic novels, and the gorgeous Seoni statue.

Giochi Uniti and Paizo Announce Pathfinder Arena

Pathfinder Arena

Giochi Uniti and Paizo will release Pathfinder Arena, a new board game set in the Pathfinder roleplaying game’s fantasy fiction Age of Lost Omens setting. The game will be available through a crowdfunding campaign in 2021. 

Pathfinder Arena is a competitive strategy game divided in four stages of challenges between monsters and heroes. In each stage the number and power of monsters increase, while heroes level-up and gather resources to gain new skills, magic spells, equipment and the deities’ favor.

The monsters summoned in the labyrinth never leave their spot, but the labyrinth shape is dynamic, and players can change it by moving the board’s tile. Monsters can then be used to attack other players: there will be only one winner.

You can get updates directly from the Pathfinder Arena webpage where you can also sign up to be notified on the crowdfunding campaign.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker Definitive Edition Comes Out August 18

Owlcat Games and Deep Silver reveal the date for the critically acclaimed launch of Pathfinder: Kingmaker Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One family of devices, including the Xbox One X as well as PC. The classic RPG will take adventurers to the Stolen Lands on August 18th, featuring all previously released content packs as well as a brand new turn-based mode. The game will be available at selected retail stores as well as through the digital stores of the respective platform.

“Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Definitive Edition” Content:

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:

  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker – 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.
  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker – ’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.
  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker – 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.
  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Bloody Mess – The name says it all – adding more blood and gore to the game as an additional option.
  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Arcane Unleashed – DLC adding more magic and spells to the game.
  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Royal Ascension – Includes Soundtrack, Digital Artbook, two in-game portraits, board game module, hi-rez map, and a red panda.
