BOSTON – Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will soon make the jump from pencils and dice to circuit boards and GPUs. Like 2018’s Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Wrath of the Righteous will adapt a fan-favorite adventure from the Pathfinder tabletop game into an epic PC RPG. And while the overall gameplay hasn’t changed much since Kingmaker, there’s a new twist. Instead of managing a kingdom, this time, you’ll get to control an army.

I went hands-on with Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous at PAX East 2020, and I admired a lot of what I saw. The game is complex, demanding and doesn’t make many concessions for those not familiar with the Pathfinder universe. But, on the other hand, it’s also packed to the gills with playable races and classes, spells, abilities, battle strategies and important choices that can change the course of the story. If Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous asks a lot from its players, it’s because it offers a lot back in return.
