Developer Owlcat Games today announced Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, a classic isometric CRPG game. Based on the adventure path of the same name, it follows in the footsteps of the previous digital adaptation of Paizo’s tabletop RPG, Pathfinder.
While not a direct sequel to Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Wrath of the Righteous will expand and elaborate on the core elements that made Owlcat’s previous installment successful. New features include the mythic progression system, a new corner of the Age of Lost Omens setting to explore, and more classes and character customizations drawn from Pathfinder’s history. Owlcat will be releasing more details as development progresses.
