Pathfinder’s upcoming video game, Wrath of the Righteous, promises to put you in charge of a keep, an army, and indeed, the very destiny of the world.
With the release date of the legendary video game adaptation of Pathfinder’s Wrath of the Righteous adventure path speeding rapidly toward us (September 2nd!), the fine folks at Owlcat games have unveiled a new trailer showcasing the different features of the upcoming game. With mounts ranging from horses to triceratops, and a system for building your own army encampment, and the promise of really taking those “epic levels” and running with them, this game looks like it’s going to be amazing. Check it out.
The realm of Sarkoris was destroyed when Areelu Vorlesh, a scholar and practitioner of forbidden magics, opened a rift to the abyssal planes of existence, and hordes of demons invaded the world of Golarion. Led by the evil Demon Lords Deskari and Baphomet, the abyssal forces crushed all who stood against them, turning Sarkoris into a demon‑infested land now known as the Worldwound.
Join the Crusade against the demonic invasion and rise as a new hero wielding unimaginable powers in this classic CRPG. The fate of this world lies in your hands.
Take part in grand adventures and fight no ordinary opponents, but formidable demons, extraordinary enemies call for an extraordinary hero! Choose your path and come to embody an Angel or a Demon, a merciless Lich or a wily Trickster, a superhero Azata, or law incarnate — an Aeon. Each path will allow you to improve your hero in unique ways, adding a new layer to character development and making your hero and their allies a true match for their powerful enemies.
We want you to feel the scale of the conflict in Wrath of the Righteous with the Crusade system—a new strategic layer of gameplay built specifically for this adventure. At a certain point in the game you will be granted command of the Fifth Crusade: a grand push against the demons. From that point on, you venture forth not only with your party, but by recruiting troops and their leaders. Gradually you will build up armies of thousands and march them across the Worldwound to seize back the territories and their treasures from the enemy.
Over the course of the adventure you won’t just level up and go through the usual cRPG party-based battles. You’ll start a fortress, lead an army, and eventually embrace one of the big Mythic Paths that grant you power beyond most mortals. You might become an Angel or a Lich or a Devil or Aeon or any number of epic-level monsters that shape worlds themselves.
If you want a big setpiece experience, Wrath of the Righteous looks incredibly promising. And with its release (on PC) less than a month away, there’s a lot to be excited about.
