'Pathfinder: Kingmaker' Beneath The Stolen Lands DLC And Enhanced Edition Dated - Screens

by Rainier on May 23, 2019 @ 3:40 p.m. PDT

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.


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.

Some of our shrewder fans have already figured out that we like to release things near the end of the month. Such was our plan for “Beneath The Stolen Lands”, our 3rd DLC, as well. However, after postponing it for a month from late April to late May, we’ve realized we now had 2 releases lined up one after the other in the space of a week. For this reason, we’ve decided that it would make more sense to release both the DLC and Enhanced Edition on the same day, June 6.

Just to remind you what it's going to be like:

Beneath The Stolen Lands Key Features

  • Enter a massive dungeon with a party made from scratch. Begin your adventure to the Tenebrous Depths with a party of newly created characters. Start the game from the main menu and experience the descent into an endless rogue-like dungeon
  • Explore the near-infinite possibilities of building a Pathfinder character. Try out different builds to perfect your tactics at your leisure. Create a band of adventurers able to overcome any danger!
  • Defeat is but a new beginning! Dying in an encounter enables additional benefits for your next playthrough
  • Unlock new items to buy across multiple playthroughs. The number of item slots traders have depends on how far you have been able to descend during all of your previous forays combined
  • Enter the dungeon as your main character, alternatively you can wait for an invitation from a mysterious protector of Golarion as you play through the Main Story. The pre-set version of the dungeon is included into the main campaign, allowing you to use your character and companions to conquer the Tenebrous Depths

From day one, we’ve set it as our goal to tirelessly improve our game based on your feedback and insight. We’ve pored over comments, scoured the forums and scrutinized your survey answers – and then rushed back to start fixing, polishing and expanding. Today, we are happy to announce the fruits of our labors: an Enhanced Edition of “Pathfinder: Kingmaker”, free to everyone who already owns a copy of the game! Not only is it a culmination of all the previous patches and fixes. Featuring all-new classes, items and abilities, numerous quality-of-life features and multiple balance adjustments, this is the ultimate way to play the game!

The Enhanced Edition will launch on June 6.

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 currently available for PC (Steam).
