Developer Owlcat Games is proud to announce the second game in their Pathfinder series, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. While not a direct sequel to the events of Pathfinder: Kingmaker, the previous project of the studio, the game will keep to the classic CRPG genre expand and elaborate on the gameplay elements that defined Kingmaker. The logo and the first key art have been released to tease players about the things to come.
“We are tremendously excited to announce Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous today. With our new game, we are taking everything that made Kingmaker enjoyable and building on top of it. We laid a solid foundation and are going to push the boundaries of the CRPG genre with our next title,” says Oleg Shpilchevskiy, Head of Owlcat Games studio. “We especially want to thank the Kingmaker community for their support because we would not be making this game if it weren’t for them. When Wrath of the Righteous is ready, we cannot wait to see them answer the call again.”
Wrath of the Righteous is based on the Adventure Path of the same name from the tabletop game but includes new characters, plots and elements.
Thank you, everyone, for the support! It is inspiring to receive so many kind words and excited tweets 🙂 It is heartening that all of you are expecting our next game!
But, without our community, we wouldn’t be able to achieve this. Thank you for being with us 😊 pic.twitter.com/d8bFZmMH3m

According to the press release:
It tells the story of a large-scale conflict between mortals and demons where players are invited to immerse themselves in a world under siege from demonic forces. As a vicious invasion threatens the world, the consequences of one’s decisions will forge a unique narrative of their personal battle between good and evil.
To stand against the demonic invasion, the player character and their companions will receive additional powers from the player’s chosen mythic path. These paths vary widely in nature and profoundly impact the storyline of the game, permanently changing the characters and the world around them. Players may choose the path of the immortal lich, wielding powerful spells and commanding an army of undead; the path of the trickster, causing mischief and finding fun even in the middle of the demon-filled abyss; the path of the angel, summoning celestial allies into battle and meting bolts of divine judgment upon foes; or something else entirely.
Some of the Pathfinder RPG classes that didn’t make into Kingmaker will debut in the Wrath of the Righteous. More classes and character options will be revealed in the near future.
The developers promise an improved visual style, a variety of locations including demon-infested wasteland and besieged cities. Wrath of the Righteous’s art will capture the epic fight of the world’s defenders as they struggle to hold the line against the corrupting force of otherworldly entities.
