Kickstarted cRPG Pathfinder: Kingmaker gets a release date and new trailer

Find paths and make kings

I completely missed the Kickstarter campaign for Pathfinder: Kingmaker in June of last year, but others obviously didn’t because it raised almost one million dollars! The game now has a release date: September 25, 2018. To celebrate, the team has also launched a trailer with an overview of all of the features.

I’m not sure if I’m in the minority, but I’m very excited to play Kingmaker because it looks like a slammin’ cRPG and not because I have any ties with the Pathfinder system. I hardly even know what that is! But the visuals have impressed me and the trailer listed basically everything I need to see in a cRPG: plenty of classes, spells, and companions!

There are also a surprising amount of versions that you can buy, and pre-ordering also nets some bonuses. Here’s a list:
