Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous ventures onto consoles this September

Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous

The Crusaders embark for a new realm

Owlcat Games’ Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is making the leap to consoles. The giant RPG will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both physically and digitally on Sept. 29, as well as Nintendo Switch via cloud.

Wrath of the Righteous will also be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, via backward compatibility. Once the console version launches, the Enhanced Edition of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will become the standard version, and PC owners will all get that version for free on Sept. 29.

Owlcat has also announced that The Treasure of the Midnight Isles, the third DLC for this Pathfinder, launches on August 11. This new adventure heads to the Midnight Isles, where horrors and terrors abound. There’s both a standalone rogue-like mode and campaign option available, allowing players to experiment with builds and party compositions if they’d like. Even if a party dies, its progress can help future playthroughs.

The Treasure of the Midnight Isles will be available either as a separate purchase, or as part of the season pass.

Many stories to tell

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is, by all accounts, a massive RPG. It’s got a somewhat-daunting amount of content, not all too dissimilar from other isometric RPGs. But if you’re looking for a console RPG to eat up your time, you could probably do worse. Impressions of the PC version seem mostly positive, and there’s even more on the way with the Midnight Isles DLC.

Owlcat, meanwhile, is also forging on to a new franchise. Last month’s Warhammer Skulls festival showcase confirmed that Owlcat is creating a Warhammer 40K CRPG, Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader.
