Following the reveal of Baldur’s Gate 3 gameplay by Larian, Owlcat Studio’s upcoming cRPG Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous has seen a sudden surge of support on Kickstarter. Over the last few days backers managed to complete Social Goals, reach the Oreads/Spanish localization stretch goal and move onto – and almost complete – 2 extra romances goal as well. Let’s dive in a bit deeper.
By following the company’s Instagram account and subscribing to its Twitter, the players managed to score the last two “stars” needed to ensure that all social bonuses will make it into the game. Here’s a full list:
- Official Wallpaper Pack
- +1 Prestige Class – Winger Witch
- Haircuts and Beard Styles Pack
- Backgrounds based on Pathfinder Second Edition
- More Music Tracks in the Game
- Player Mods Support
- Cameo from Pathfinder: Kingmaker
- And the last but not the least Romance Option with Queen Galfrey, a paladin badass
Time for some more romantic news! Thanks to your dedication and furious support, we’ve finally unlocked the last social goal! That means ALL of the additional bonuses and features from the chart have successfully granted their place in the game, including the most-awaited royal romance option with queen Galfrey herself. We were fascinated to see our fellow pathfinders’ commitment to reach that goal. Congratulations!
Upon reaching the Oreads/Spanish localization stretch goal, the developers from Owlcat Studios have revealed the upcoming addition to the game – provided it receives sufficient funding. The stretch goal will provide two more love interests to the existing four romance options: half-elf Camellia, a shaman, and aasimar Daeran, an oracle and bon vivant.
You can learn a bit more about Camellia and the Shaman class by checking out the related Kickstarter update dedicated to their introduction.
You will meet Camellia in the raging flames of Kenabres. She is a noble, able to maintain her stiff upper lip amidst the chaos that has engulfed the city in the wake of the demon invasion. A talented shaman, she seems eager to lend you her aid and fight under your command, but she won’t tell you much about herself, deflecting your questions with a polite yet fleeting smile. Even her alignment stays hidden, thanks to a special amulet the girl refuses to take off. If you’re willing to put in some effort, Camellia could open up to you, becoming your friend or even a lover.
Until then, a girl must keep her secrets.
Additionally, the team revealed a bit of their working process by showing how in-game events are approached. One of the writers at Bioware once joked about the complexities of writing for games by saying: “Imagine that you have to write a scene where one potentially dead character talks to another potentially dead character about an event that might have happened or might have not.” It sounds absurd but that is the reality of game making.
If you are more into the aesthetics part, the team also shared a bit about the process of creating an atmosphere through sound.
Working on Wrath of the Righteous has introduced new challenges: the key themes being explored have changed, as has the setting. Instead of the green forests and meadows of the Stolen Lands, we’ll be spending most of our time in the bleak wastelands and cities conquered by the demons on the edges of the Worldwound, in corrupted dungeons, and even in the Abyss itself.
Lastly, Owlcat Studios made an announcement of Reddit AMA on March 4th starting at 12 PM EST/ 6 PM CET/ 8 PM MSK. The AMA will take place in the r/Pathfinder_Kingmaker subreddit. Prepare your questions!
We know that you want to know as much as possible about Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Some of you might aim to uncover more knowledge about our previous game – Pathfinder: Kingmaker. And what is the best way to learn about the game than ask a question?
