Pathfinder: Kingmaker for PC now available for preorder ahead of September release

Pathfinder: Kingmaker, a new classic RPG from Owlcat Games and published by Deep Silver, is coming out on September 25 for PC. It's an old-school pen and paper style RPG, similar to Baldur's Gate of old and the more recent Pillars of Eternity series by Obsidian Entertainment. This upcoming title is ready to preorder on various storefronts.

Development of Pathfinder: Kingmaker continued after securing funding from more than 18,000 backers. The game will be based on the tabletop of the same name, allowing the player to take on the role of an adventurer. Many kingdoms have fallen to evil, but mechanics are at hand to provide adventurers with the means to form a kingdom of their very own.

Veteran writer Chris Avellone is part of the team developing Pathfinder: Kingmaker so one can assume it's going to be an excellent storytelling experience. Other features usually found in games of this type are present, including party members, player choice, and many quests to complete.

There are special editions available if you so chose to support the game further:

  • Noble - $70: includes soundtrack, artbook, and player portraits.
  • Royal - $85: The above plus a map of Stolen Lands, red panda pet, and Chris Avellone adventure module.
  • Imperial - $106: The above plus the season pass.

The base version is available for around $50, though if you buy it on GOG you'll earn just shy of $10 to spend on another game. A season pass will be made available, as is included in the Imperial edition of Pathfinder: Kingdom.
