Owlcat Games has twitterpated the cRPG community with its announcement of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, a new classic isometric game based on the wildly popular tabletop Pathfinder series. The game is a follow-up to Pathfinder: Kingmaker which was released in September 2018. As with the first game, Wrath of the Righteous will be heading to Kickstarter for crowdfunding opportunities. The initiative is expected to launch on February 4, 2020.
To ramp up the excitement for the game, Owlcat has released some new screenshots, concept art, and information about the Crusade Commander feature, a brand new aspect of the game that is specific to WotR. Check out all of the screenshots here.
Developers have an exciting plan ahead for Kickstarter beginning with information about the game’s creative vision, main features and will provide a first look at gameplay through a new trailer. The team wrote, “And with our next project – Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous – we want to bring work with the community to the next level. We will engage content creators, build a new forum for players’ discussions, held detailed surveys during alpha and beta tests, and put emphasis on feedback from our community. You will help us to shape the game, drive our vision and achieve the most daring ideas. And to accomplish this we will launch a new Kickstarter campaign.”
Crusade Commander is an extension of and improvement on the Kingdom Building feature found in the first game. It requires players to make careful decisions for recapturing cities, crafting strategic alliances, and honing relationships with companions. “Recruiting and upgrading one’s armies, capturing and holding strategic points, and exploring ancient ruins to find powerful artifacts are just a few of the many activities that require one’s undivided attention. Of course, companions will try their best to help. We listened to the feedback on the kingdom building and acted upon it to make the most captivating crusade experience possible.”
