Development on Pathfinder: Kingmaker continues, with a new beta build released to backers earlier this month. The game is still scheduled for release in late summer, a date which is now fast approaching, and thus Owlcat have announced that they're shutting down crowdfunding - unfortunately, just $20,000 away from the final $1.1M Hellknights stretch goal. The details are in Kingmaker's latest Kickstarter update, which also features a new lore video starring Paizo Creative Director James Jacobs. The five minute video serves as an introduction to both the Kingmaker campaign and the Pathfinder setting in general. The most interesting part is the description of the game's kingdom management aspect, which also includes a few brief snippets of gameplay. Check it out:
We are very happy to bring you a brand new video today! Learn more about Golarion and the Stolen Lands from Paizo's very own Creative Director James Jacobs below!
Perhaps you have friends, who have voiced interest in Pathfinder: Kingmaker, but they're unfamiliar with the lore? Feel free to share this video and help them learn what the setting is all about!
Crowdfunding ends this Friday!
As previously announced, we are about to stop collecting money towards the unlocking of additional stretchgoals. As you all know, we are aiming to release the full version of Pathfinder: Kingmaker in late summer 2018. And that means there has to be a cutoff point, where we stop promising and adding new features in order to give ourselves enough time to complete the game. As of this moment, we're at a crowdfunding sum of about 1,080,000 USD. Unfortunately, this means that Hellknights didn't quite make it in time. Sorry!
Many of you have asked whether Hellknights could be added later via post-release DLC. While we can't promise it at this point, it's a possibility. We really enjoy working on this title and since many of you keep asking for post-release content, we need to consider it. The nature and amount of such content, however, remains to be determined at a later date. Please bear with us!
As our crowdfunding is coming to an end, so is our current offer of pre-order packages. They will be replaced by different pre-order packs, which can be purchased over on owlcatgames.com. Pathfinder: Kingmaker is also getting its very own Steam page in the coming days! A little while later, sometime around early June, pre-orders for Pathfinder: Kingmaker will also come to the Steam Store, followed by pre-orders on GoG within the first half of June.
