'Pathfinder: Kingmaker' Details Upcoming DLC, Season Pass Content

by Rainier on Nov. 20, 2018 @ 9:47 a.m. PST

Pathfinder: Kingmaker is an isometric computer RPG that will take players on a tour through the infamous Stolen Lands, the dangerous and turbulent territories well known within Pathfinder fandom.

The computer RPG will revisit familiar characters and well-known locations of the series’ lore as well as treat 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.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker will challenge players as both adventurers and rulers as they will be able to claim explored lands and carve their own kingdom from the wilderness. Kingdom founding will go beyond simple stronghold-building to become a true reflection of the hero’s character and choices made throughout the game. Each kingdom will be a living thing shaped by alignment, choices, allies and the hero’s ability to lead his or her people.


Publisher Deep Silver and developer Owlcat Games detailed three pieces of upcoming content planned for the classically influenced RPG Pathfinder: Kingmaker, with The Wildcards DLC set to kick things off when it launches alongside the season pass on Dec. 8. Adventurers can now purchase the season pass on Steam or add it to their wishlist on GOG for $24.99.

Owlcat’s additions to the Stolen Lands, Pathfinder: Kingmaker’s lawless fantasy world, will offer new locations, companions, items, and game modes. The DLC will be available together as a one-time purchase via the game’s Season Pass or as standalone reasons to return to the game’s enthralling universe.

DLC #1 – “The Wildcards” (Dec. 6, 2018 - $7.99)

Encounter the Tiefling Kineticist, a new playable character serving as the debut of her race and character class, complete with her own rich and engaging storyline.

Head of Owlcat Games Oleg Shpilchevsky explains, “A new playable race! During the poll to decide which bonus race we were going to add to the game, one particular option was requested a lot \ Tieflings, the people with a drop of demonic blood in their veins. They didn't make it into the base game, but became the natural choice for the first piece of post-release content.”

DLC #2 – “Varnhold's Lot” (targetting February 2019 - $11.99)

Brave the challenges of a new bonus campaign. While celebrating victory at Jamandi Aldori's mansion, adventurers meet another hero of the Stolen Lands: the mercenary captain Maegar Varn. While building a barony in the Shrike Hills and Narlmarshes, Varn and his people are establishing the nation of Varnhold in the rocky foothills of Dunsward.

This new story explores the challenges faced by Varn’s party in its venture, and the consequences of choices made can be exported and implemented into Pathfinder: Kingmaker’s main campaign. This exciting new side story equals the size of one chapter of the game’s central campaign and will take 6-12 hours to complete, depending on preferred playstyle.

DLC #3 – “Beneath The Stolen Lands” (targetting April 2019 - $9.99)

For the days where jumping into an unpredictable gauntlet of combat sounds more enticing than discovering the Stolen Lands’ rich lore, this DLC will introduce a rogue-like randomly generated endless dungeon, complete with a new unique boss. The dungeon offers two options. It can be explored in a separate game or experienced within an adventurer’s main campaign.

Key features:

  • A Living and Untamed World Awaits – Pathfinder: Kingmaker features a dynamic world with highly detailed locations to explore, day-night cycle, changing seasons and weather system.
  • Create The Adventurer You Want - Seven core races and 14 different classes, each with up to 3 different archetypes, with the option to customize characters adjusted to your playstyle.
  • Pick Your Companions Wisely - Up to 11 diverse companions, with individual stories to tell and relationships to build, provide players with a party as complex as they are.
  • Shape The Future of your Kingdom - Shape the Stolen Lands with decisions made either as a wise and righteous king or as an evil tyrant. Players have the power to shape the future of their kingdom and the world beyond.

The game is being developed by a team of industry veterans, with a dozen years of experience (Etherlods, Silent Storm, Heroes of Might&Magic V, Skyforge) and love for pen and paper role-playing games. Assisting the story is narrative designer Chris Avellone, who previously worked on Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment, Divinity: Original Sin II, and many other well-known titles. To ensure that the Pathfinder universe is carefully transferred into a video game, the development team also works in close partnership and under the supervision of Paizo, the creators of the pen-and-paper RPG franchise.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker is scheduled for release on September 25, 2018.
