Pathfinder: Kingmaker Definitive Edition Coming to Consoles!
Brand new turn-based mode and all DLCs available August 18, 2020
Larkspur, Calif. (June 11, 2020) – Owlcat Games and Deep Silver officially announce the critically acclaimed RPG Pathfinder: Kingmaker will be coming to consoles this August as Pathfinder: Kingmaker Definitive Edition. Pathfinder: Kingmaker Definitive Edition will feature all previously released DLC content packs as will introduce a brand new turn-based gameplay mode. The new turn-based mode lets players experience the entire storyline and all previously released DLCs with a whole new approach. Pathfinder: Kingmaker Definitive Edition will launch on August 18 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox One X (MSRP $49.99).
“The turn-based mode brings the game even closer to the tabletop experience, providing the players with more precise control over the battlefield,” says Oleg Shpilchevskiy, Head of Studio at Owlcat Games. “Our point was to have both modes – real-time with pause and the new turn-based mode – in a perfect co-existence so players can smoothly switch between both to adjust the gameplay at any time to their needs. It settles the long-running debate among the fans which mode is better for Kingmaker since they can go from an action-oriented real-time combat style to a more tactical one within a single encounter.”
About Pathfinder: Kingmaker:
Pathfinder: Kingmaker takes players on tour through the infamous Stolen Lands, the dangerous and turbulent territories well known within Pathfinder fandom. Kingmaker revisits familiar characters and well-known locations of the “series” lore and treats players to brand new adventures, deadly foes, and unforeseen twists and turns. Fans of the fantasy pen-and-paper RPG will experience its epic, heroic universe in new ways while computer RPG gamers will discover their favorite genre in a more contemporary light, in stunning 3D graphics that bring the universe to life.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker will challenge players as both adventurers and rulers as they claim explored lands and carve their kingdom from the wilderness. Kingdom founding goes beyond simple stronghold-building to become a true reflection of the hero’s character and choices made throughout the game. Each kingdom is a living thing shaped by alignment, choices, allies, and the hero’s ability to lead his or her people.
Features of Pathfinder: Kingmaker Definitive Edition:
The Wildcards – Intrepid explorers of The Stolen Lands can discover a new playable race the Tieflings, harness the power of a newly playable class Kineticists, and booster their party with the companion the Tiefling Kineticist, who brings her own and rich, engaging storyline.
“Varnhold’s Lot” – Just as you were claiming your first title, another hero of the Stolen Lands became a baron too: Maegar Varn, captain of the Varnling Host mercenary band and rightful ruler of Varnhold. In this DLC, you join Varn as his general, and experience Varnhold’s valorous history first-hand. Playing a full new storyline that runs parallel to the main story, players will import the results of this adventure to their main story, facing the consequences of their choices when moving forward with their main party and storyline.
Beneath The Stolen Lands – Valiant adventurers meet with the self-proclaimed protector of Golarion and discover what secrets lie buried beneath the Stolen Lands, in a shifting labyrinth of madness where nothing is what it seems as they defend the lands against one of the most deadly enemies the world has ever seen. Enter the dungeon as your main character. Alternatively, you can wait for an invitation from a mysterious protector of Golarion as you play through the main story. The pre-set version of the dungeon is included in the main campaign, allowing you to use your character and companions to conquer the Tenebrous Depths.
Bloody Mess – The name says it all – adding more blood and gore to the game as an additional option.
Arcane Unleashed – DLC adding more magic and spells to the game.
Royal Ascension – Includes Soundtrack, Digital Artbook, two in-game portraits, board game module, hi-rez map, and a red panda.
Current owners of Pathfinder: Kingmaker on PC will receive the turn-based mode feature in a free update around August 18th.
