“We have been gathering community feedback very carefully in the development of Wrath of the Righteous,” says creative director Alexander Mishulin. “Their support has helped us expand the original scope of the game and create the CRPG experience that we have dreamed of. And we are incredibly grateful for that.”
Based on the celebrated tabletop role-playing game Pathfinder, this game takes place in the Worldwound, a land conquered by Deskari's army of demons. To fight against corruption, players will be able to choose from a host of mythic paths, each of which follows a distinct narrative arc. As Commander, players can become a celestial angel, raging demon, powerful lich, a cunning trickster, otherworldly aeon, a rebellious Azata, a wise gold dragon, an insatiable Swarm-That-Walks, or remain a mortal and walk the arduous path toward becoming a living legend.
The trailer showcases details about crusade mode, along with mounted combat and tactical combat game mechanics. Crusade mode enables players to select their general, change the size of their army, and explore the map of the world.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is now available on all major digital stores including Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG for $49.99. It will also be available on consoles for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions slated for release on March 1st, 2022. Prime Matter, Koch Media’s premium gaming label, will distribute the physical console copies.
