After the success of Pathfinder: Kingmaker, creator Owlcat Games got to work on a sequel…Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous. Finding cash was no problem…the crowdfunding campaign ended with over two million dollars raised. Owlcat conducted an alpha test in the spring of 2020, and a beta test last May, and now all things look OK, so the game will be released for PCs on time next month.
But what about consoles? Owlcat says they’ve been thinking about it and have decided to press ahead. The console version of Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous was announced today, with a targeted release date of March 2022.
In Wrath Of The Righteous you’re battling a demonic invasion to save the world of Golarian. As you command your forces and level up, you’ll have the ability to transform into more powerful forms depending on the skills you desire: “a celestial Angel, a raging Demon, a powerful Lich, a cunning Trickster, an otherworldly Aeon, a rebellious Azata, a wise Gold Dragon, [and] an insatiable Swarm That Walks” are all listed as options. — You also have the option of not transforming at all and beating your enemies through brute strength, earning you the class of Legend.
Wrath Of The Righteous includes the new Crusade Mode, which lets players select their general, change the size of their army, and explore the map of the world, with stats like remaining movement points, army and enemy strengths and combat morale clearly displayed. It’s also possible to ride animal companions, who come with their own progression systems and customization options.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will launch September 2 for PC via Steam and GOG, and sometime in March for Playstation 4 and XBox One.
Awhile back publisher Curve Digital and developer Runner Duck released Space Crew — an intergalactic crew management strategy game (it was easier to say “Space Crew”). If you have the game and think you’ve seen everything, you haven’t as of today…Curve and Runner Duck have expanded its content into a
It’s kind of disheartening to see some projects struggle through the Hollywood machine for over a decade, only to finally see release but land with an anticlimactic thud. Projects like Disney’s Treasure Planet, or FX’s Y The Last Man (just cancelled after one season and ten years of development). Sony’s
The Tomb Raider series turns 25 years old this fall, and Square has…pretty much nothing planned in celebration. As a substitute, they’re showing off video games we DIDN’T get..like Tomb Raider Ascension, a survival horror game planned by Crystal Dynamics in the early 2010s. A survival horror Tomb Raider? It’s
There’s now more than one way to play the dungeon-crawling RPG Gloomhaven. Originally born as a tabletop RPG, it soft-launched in video game form on Steam Early Access two years ago. Since then publisher Asmodee Digital and developer Flaming Fowl Studios have been building up its content, and as of
