Dev Owlcat Games releases new info on classes, companions and lore.
Become introduced to the rich universe of Pathfinder as a newcomer or explore famous locations familiar to any fan of the original tabletop game. Players are invited to go on a grand adventure and meet original companions and familiar characters, ready to accompany them on their arduous journey. Adventurers witness how their decisions affect the environment and the people inhabiting it. They establish a kingdom to bring peace, hope, and prosperity to the land or take everything for themselves and plunge it into darkness.
The game is being developed by a team of industry veterans, with a dozen years of experience (Etherlods, Silent Storm, Heroes of Might&Magic V, Skyforge) and love for pen and paper role-playing games. Assisting the story is narrative designer Chris Avellone, who previously worked on Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment, Divinity: Original Sin II, and many other well-known titles. To ensure that the Pathfinder universe is carefully transferred into a video game, the development team also works in close partnership and under the supervision of Paizo, the creators of the franchise.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker’s main features include:
- A Living and Untamed World Awaits – Pathfinder: Kingmaker features a dynamic world with highly detailed locations to explore, day-night cycle, changing seasons and weather system.
- Create The Adventurer You Want – Seven core races and 14 different classes, each with up to 3 different archetypes, with the option to customize characters adjusted to your playstyle.
- Pick Your Companions Wisely – Up to 11 diverse companions, with individual stories to tell and relationships to build, provide players with a party as complex as they are.
- Shape The Future of your Kingdom – Shape the Stolen Lands with decisions made either as a wise and righteous king or as an evil tyrant. Players have the power to shape the future of their kingdom and the world beyond.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker will be launching for PC, MacOS and Linux this summer. We’ll keep you updated with more info as it comes.
