New gameplay trailer unveils companion cast, Mythic transformations, combat systems, and more
Moscow, Russia, August 10, 2021 — Owlcat Games and META Publishing have released a new trailer for Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, inviting gamers to save a dark and gritty demon-infested world from ruin. After an incredible $2 million Kickstarter campaign and beta release, the console version of the game is set to launch in stores on March 1st, 2022 for Playstation 4 and Xbox One. To celebrate the console release date, a new trailer premiered during Microsoft’s Twitchgaming Showcase: ID@Xbox to reveal the main villain and the companion cast that can help the players on their journeys. In addition, details about new characters, gameplay mechanics, and mythic transformations were shown.
To fight against the demonic invasion, players choose a mythic path, which grants their character a unique set of skills as well as a distinct narrative arc – ultimately leading to their mythic transformation. As Commander, characters can become a celestial Angel, a raging Demon, a powerful Lich, a cunning Trickster, an otherworldly Aeon, a rebellious Azata, a wise Gold Dragon, an insatiable Swarm That Walks — or remain mortal and walk the arduous path toward becoming a living Legend. Mythic transformations allow characters to increase the rank of their chosen path to earn new skills and abilities, but also have a great impact on the world around them including Drezen, the biggest fortress of the game and its capital city.

The trailer showcases details about crusade mode, along with mounted combat and tactical combat game mechanics. Crusade mode enables players to select their general, change the size of their army, and explore the map of the world. It also shows how many movement points that are left, overall combat morale, army strength, and enemy strengths. Animal companions are useful for mounted combat, as they come with their own full-scale progression systems and levels of customization.
Owlcat Games and META Publishing are excited to remind that Pathfinder: The Wrath of the Righteous will launch worldwide on PC on September 2nd, 2021. Pre-orders are available on Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG for $49.99. Playstation 4 and Xbox One versions are slated for release on March 1st, 2022. Prime Matter, Koch Media’s premium gaming label, will distribute the physical console copies.
