Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is another production of the Russian independent studio Owlcat Games, founded by former employees of Nival Interactive (Silent Storm, Heroes of Might and Magic V) and My.com (Armored Warfare). We are dealing with an indirect continuation of Pathfinder: Kingmaker, a classic RPG with an isometric view based on the system of a paper feature game Pathfinder which is a modified version of the Dungeons & Dragons 3.5. The artists again worked on the production with the legendary veteran of the industry, Chris Avellone, the creator of Planescape Torment and Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords.

Plot

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous does not directly continue the feature film of the debut game of the Owlcat Games studio. This time as a group of daredevils we travel through the new, darker region of Golarion, visiting, among others, the wilderness captured by demons, the besieged city of crusaders and the dangerous abyss. The story focuses on the struggle between good (humans and angels) and evil (Lord Deskari's demonic minions).

Mechanics

The action of the game was shown - similarly to Pathfinder: Kingmaker - in isometric view. It is a classic team RPG in which we explore climatic locations, fight opponents in real time against active pauses and complete the main thread tasks and side missions, gaining experience points needed for character development. The game is also full of moral choices, which have a large impact on the rest of the game. In Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous there are new characters, classes (Witch and Oracle), archetypes and races, but in addition to that there are also new characters from the previous installment.

One of the novelties is a mythic progression system borrowed from a table game of the same subtitle, which gives access to extremely strong abilities. They have a significant influence on the course of the plot, permanently changing the characters and the environment around them. During the game you can follow the path of the immortal count ordering the army of the undead, an angel summoning heavenly allies on the battlefield or a trickster dancing joyfully even in the middle of an abyss filled with demons. Each of them has been significantly changed with respect to card solutions and has been adapted to better suit the computer game.

There were also strategic elements in the production, but the new system, unlike the management of the kingdom from the previous version of the cycle, gained in depth and was better adapted to the gameplay and fit into the history of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.

Technical aspects

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is based on the heavily modified Unity engine, known from the previous part of the series. The visual setting was maintained in a darker key, but there was also an improvement in the quality of graphics, including character models, location appearance and spell effects.
