((Thanks, Deep Silver!)
If you’re a PS$ or Xbox owner into deep and somewhat complex role-playing games with a bit of town building on the side, but haven’t yet tried Owlcat’s Pathfinder: Kingmaker in its PC form yet, well you’re in luck. Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Definitive Edition is coming from publisher Deep Silver on August 18, 2020. Packing in all six DLC and a new optional turn-based mode that makes the game feel more like the tabletop version, this looks like it’ll keep some of us indoors even longer (which might be a good thing). PC players on STEAM and GOG will be getting that turn-based update as well as a free download in case they want to give the game’s real-time pause-based play a rest for a spell.
A bit of brief official news below the jump. Read on.
We have announced a long time ago that Pathfinder: Kingmaker will come to consoles. And now it is time to reveal the date! On August 18th 2020 Pathfinder: Kingmaker Definitive Edition will launch on PLaySation®4 and the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X as well as PC. The classic RPG will take adventurers to the Stolen lands featuring all previously released content packs as well as a brand new turn-based mode, bringing the game even closer to its tabletop roots. And, yes, turn-base is coming to PC as well!
The game will be available at selected retail stores as well as through the digital stores of the respective platform.
The turn-based option started as a mod and we want to say thank you to the creator of it – Hsinyu. They showed us the way to implement the turn-based system into Pathfinder: Kingmaker and bring it even closer to the tabletop experience.
Well, I now know where most of the last half of August will be going (and then some). Let me go stock up on snacks now, as I very likely may forget to leave the house later. Well, except to pick up the game, as it will be available on a disc as an option and yes, I’m pleased about that.
