Meta Publishing and developer Owlcat Games have released tactical RPG Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous on PC (Steam, GoG, Epic Games Store), for $49.99.

Wrath of the Righteous uses the Pathfinder tabletop RPG rules, which is itself heavily based on Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 edition, and a sequel to 2018’s Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Players create a character based on fantasy classes and races like elves, dwarves, fighters, and wizards, and pick up other ally party members as they adventure, and can engage in either real-time or turn-based combat.

The sequel takes place in Worldwound, a land ravaged by a conquering demon army, led by evil demon lords. Thankfully you have a major advantage with the addition of mythic paths, choosing to become uber-powerful archetypes like dragons, demons, liches, and something known as the Swarm That Walks.

As a battlefield commander, you’ll also be in charge of the armies battling back the demons and exploring the map in a new strategic layer.

“We have been gathering community feedback very carefully in the development of Wrath of the Righteous,” said Alexander Mishulin, creative director, Owlcat Games. “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.”

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is available now on PC, and launching on March 1, 2022 on Xbox and PlayStation. It’s rated M for Mature.
