The Next Chapter in the CRPG of Pathfinder has reached Beta!
Owlcat Games has announced that the first beta for its classic isometric CRPG, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, is now available to backers who contributed to the title’s Kickstarter or Slacker Backer campaigns in the relevant tiers.
Fans are able to play the first four chapters of the game – over 50 hours of content – and broadcast their play on Twitch and on YouTube.
The first three chapters may be streamed on Twitch and YouTube.
Fans may play through chapter 4, but will be prompted with a message alerting them not to stream before their experience begins.
In celebration of the beta’s launch, the studio has unveiled details on an interactive “Choose Your Own Story” Community Quest and released the opening animated video. The quest events are to be determined entirely by the community and set to begin on Twitch this Friday, February 5, at 2 PM CET / 5 AM PST.
Players can also play through the Mythic progression system and choose one of six Mythic Paths (nine will be featured in the final game): Angel, Azata, Lich, Demon, Aeon, and Trickster.
Each path impacts the title’s main narrative in a unique way, though major developments will occur in later chapters.
Mythic abilities like devastating spells and powerful buffs may be experimented with however fans wish.
Players will be able to navigate through all the content with an up-to-date, redesigned UI.
Wrath of the Righteous’ second beta – set to arrive this spring – will comprise more content, including features promised to Kickstarter backers.
