Welcome back to Introducing: The article where TBG keep you updated on some of the new and exciting titles on the horizon, today we are happy to share that critically acclaimed developer Owlcat Games started today its Kickstarter Campaign for the CRPG Pathfinder: Kingmaker spiritual sequel Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, In celebration, the studio is happy to share an exciting video showcasing for the first time an animated cutscene and pre-alpha gameplay footage. Let’s take a closer look.
What is Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous?
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is an epic adventure in which players rise to power as one of six Mythic character types: the benevolent Angel, the ravaging Demon, the powerful Lich, the cunning Trickster, the lawful Aeon, and the rebellious Azata. Every choice made during the adventure will allow players to align themselves with a specific Mythic Path. Becoming one of these unique beings greatly impacts the main narrative, grants distinct abilities and affects a character’s appearance.
The new Mythic Paths revealed today include the Aeon, a cosmic judge of balance that can travel to the past; the Demon, an impulsive creature on the verge of losing its self-control and the Azata, a champion of the innocent and unstoppable force of good. Players may ignore these celestial powers and become a Legend—a mortal who doesn’t need help from any deity to inspire people and destroy the demon lords.

In addition to the classes introduced in Kingmaker, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will allow players to choose from the following five new classes: the Arcanist, Bloodrager, Shaman, Oracle, and Witch. They may also play as a new race of half-undead mortals called dhampirs. The number of archetypes per class will increase to five.
