Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous brings back the best RPG action

When you think about fantasy role-playing games, the first one that comes to your mind is Dungeons and Dragons. Many video game creators have used the legendary tabletop RPG to inspire their work, giving birth to jewels like Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Pillars of Eternity, or Pathfinder: Kingmaker. We will focus on the Pathfinder franchise today, which is about to get a new game. Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will launch on September 2 on PC, and it will bring back the best features from its predecessor in an epic adventure based on Pathfinder tabletop RPG ruleset, which is an evolved version of the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 ruleset.



Kingmaker was a refreshing take on the genre, letting you play as the lord of a realm and having to deal with all the problems in the territory while progressing through your own adventuring agenda. That's rather unusual for a fantasy role-playing setting, where you tend to start as a plain hero that grows in power by defeating evil threats in dungeons and collecting treasure. Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous also features an unusual scenario. It tasks you with leading a crusade against a horde of creatures from the Abyss that has invaded your world. Once again, you will have total freedom to achieve your goal of driving them back and putting an end to this conflict however you choose. The game offers plenty of leeway on your methods, and you don't necessarily need to be a holy knight clad in shiny armor. However, you will have to deal with the consequences of your decisions, which will have a wide impact on the world surrounding you.

Of course, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous brings some novelties. For instance, it allows you to swap between real-time with pause and turn-based for a completely different gameplay experience. With 25 classes and 12 races to choose from, the game offers you an unprecedented level of customization for your character. It also features new gameplay mechanics, like mounted combat.



Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will be a favorite of the fans of classic role-playing games without any doubt. The only question now is: what path will you take to drive back the demonic invasion and save your world?
