Moscow, Russia, February 25, 2020 — Owlcat Games has announced its plans to add Spanish localization to Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, the highly anticipated classic isometric CRPG whose successful Kickstarter campaign has raised more than $1.3 million so far. Based on Paizo’s famous tabletop RPG and the adventure path of the same name, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will have players choose from one of eight different Mythic Paths, lead a crusade, and become a hero in a world overrun by demons. Fans have an opportunity to help the campaign achieve its twelfth stretch goal before it ends on March 11.

“Currently, our script for Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous contains more than 1.2 million words,” says Owlcat Games’ Head of Studio Oleg Shpilchevskiy. “This translation is a complex task that we want done right so Spanish-speaking people are pleased with the final product.”

Achieving this stretch goal will also allow Owlcat Games to introduce a new race called Oreads, the stoic and contemplative descendants of outsiders from the Elemental Plane of Earth. In addition to the rewards listed on Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous’ Kickstarter page, backers who support the campaign today will have an opportunity to vote for another non-human race: ratfolk, catfolk or kitsune (“fox folk”). A new race of half-undead mortals called dhampirs will also appear when the game launches in June 2021.

Stretch goals that backers have unlocked so far include two new Mythic Paths (Swarm-That-Walks and Gold Dragon), two new classes (Warpriest and Skald), evolving animal companions, a “thiefling” companion named Woljif Jefto, a select soundtrack performed by a symphony orchestra, one more archetype per class and new features such as mounted combat, dismemberment, and Double Reactivity.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is an epic adventure in which players rise to power as one of eight Mythic character types: the benevolent Angel, the ravaging Demon, the powerful Lich, the cunning Trickster, the lawful Aeon, the rebellious Azata, the ruthless Swarm-That-Walks, and the merciful Gold Dragon. The title will feature an extremely flexible character building system with 24 classes to choose from and six archetypes per class. The game is designed to be played in real-time with pause (RTWP), but will also feature a turn-based mode (TBM), that will allow players to experience a play session almost identical to the tabletop version.

Owlcat Games thanks all the backers who have contributed to the campaign so far. Additional details regarding Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous‘ Mythic Paths, new features and crowdfunding goals can be found at the game’s Kickstarter page. The campaign will run until March 11.
