Sufficient individuals have been asking Owlcat Video games “What’s subsequent?” that the developer of Pathfinder: Kingmaker and Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous put collectively a web site to tease a solution that query: whatisnext.owlcat.games (opens in new tab). Head there and you may see a looping animation of three planets and an asteroid subject, with a concentrating on show overlaid on it. Certain seems like they’re heading into area (man).
The conclusion followers are leaping to is that Owlcat’s subsequent recreation will swap the tabletop RPG Pathfinder for its sci-fi sibling, Starfinder. First revealed in 2017, Starfinder builds on each the foundations and setting of Pathfinder, solely as an alternative of wizards and rogues it has lessons like technomancers and biohackers, and along with elves, dwarves, and so forth, you is perhaps an android or an alien who seems like a jellyfish.
Starfinder takes place in the identical photo voltaic system as Pathfinder, however far sooner or later after a mysterious occasion has made Golarion, the world the place many of the Pathfinder adventures are set, disappear, and wiped everybody’s recollections of it. No crossovers, I am afraid.
Assuming Owlcat continues to adapt revealed journey paths because it did with Kingmaker and Wrath of the Righteous, Starfinder has loads to select from. Horizons of the Vast (opens in new tab), wherein the gamers settle an uncharted planet, looks like it will be a very good match—it is the identical setup as Kingmaker solely with alien dinosaurs and a portal to the moon. In contrast to the Pathfinder campaigns it does not take player-characters all the way in which to max degree, however there’s one other journey path known as Devastation Ark (opens in new tab) designed for high-level play that might be bolted onto it.
Earlier this month, Owlcat cryptically tweeted a hint (opens in new tab) about what it is engaged on subsequent: “An historic world with a riven coronary heart. Discover the trail to it – and its riches will likely be yours! However paths there are two, and each will cloak you in shame, and neither is what it appears..” Which does not actually clear issues up, however there you go.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous remains to be receiving common updates, with a recent patch (opens in new tab) containing fixes for each the bottom recreation and its DLC. Amongst its modifications, a personality who may participate in a dialog at camp after they had been lifeless will not try this any extra, and “Small ghouls now not carry enormous bows”.
