Action RPG Pathfinder: Kingmaker is getting a sequel this year, with Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Check out the first look.

Path of wrath

The game might not have been a blockbuster, but 2018’s Pathfinder: Kingmaker did receive some critical acclaim when it launched. The game introduced a fan-favorite fantasy world to the gaming landscape, in adapting the Pathfinder tabletop title.

And apparently, it did well enough to warrant a sequel. That happens this year, spinning out of publisher Koch Media and its new Prime Matter studio. Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous’ main set piece is a massive lost-fortress called Drezen.

Check out the developer diary, digging into the fortress bit more.

A linchpin of the Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous story, players learn about the city early in the game as they interact with people who witnessed its siege and claim to be responsible for its loss 70 years ago. The Queen directs heroes to take back the fortress – by any means necessary – and the assault’s starting location is highly influenced by the choices players make and the advice they follow. The fortress changes constantly depending on the Mythic Path you choose and decisions you make throughout the game.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is head to the PC first, landing on September 2nd. Console aRPG fans won’t have to wait too much longer to play though, as additional platforms are scheduled to play host to the game this autumn as well.
