The Wildcards, Owlcat Games' first DLC for Pathfinder: Kingmaker, was delayed a week and is out today (once again colliding with an Obsidian release!). As stated in last month's season pass announcement, The Wildcards adds a new race - Tieflings, a new class - Kineticists, and a new companion - Kaessi the Tiefling Kineticist. It's not a big DLC, but then Owlcat seem to have enough work on their hands as it is. Maybe that's why there's no release trailer, which is weird because even the Bloody Mess free DLC got one. I'll just post the description:
Living channels of elemental energy, tamers of wild power - who are they? Kineticists, masters of occult elemental skills.
A mysterious stranger crosses the threshold of your barony - marked with the blood of devils, gifted with the power of the elements. Who is she? Discover for yourself!
This new DLC for Pathfinder: Kingmaker includes:
- A new playable race. During the poll to decide which bonus race we were going to add to the game, one particular option was requested a lot (besides the winner - Aasimars): Tieflings, the people with a drop of demonic blood in their veins. They didn't make it into the base game, but became the natural choice for the first piece of post-release content.
- A new playable class. They master the raw power of the elements, channeling it into their wild talents to manipulate the world around them. Kineticists are living conduits of primal energy, deadly both in close and ranged combat.
- A new companion. If you combine a race with a class, you get a character. Welcome your new companion, the Tiefling Kineticist who comes, just like every other companion, with her own storyline. She could also be a romance option and may hold one of the positions in the Kingdom.
The Wildcards is available now on Steam and GOG for $8. Alongside the DLC comes a new hotfix, which you can read about here. Kingmaker's second major patch was also supposed to come out this month, but has been delayed to mid-January.
