Pathfinder: Kingmaker, the party-based RPG from Owlcat Games and Deep Silver is going to expand with a free Enhanced Edition and another DLC.

They say it's going to include plenty of "gameplay-enriching content additions" along with the usual quality of life improvements to existing features, new abilities and ways to build your character, a new Slayer class, new items and weapons, improved balance especially in the beginning and last two chapters, an improved kingdom management system, an increased variety to the random encounters on the map and so on.

Also, releasing at the same time is the new Beneath The Stolen Lands DLC which will include a massive dungeon to explore, available for new characters and it will be inserted into the main campaign too. Sounds interesting, they say in this DLC that death is only the beginning as you unlock stuff for your next attempt. Both the update and the DLC will be live on June 6th.

I've still yet to give it a go, after it launched with major flaws in the Linux version and so the Linux build was delayed on GOG I just completely forgot to ever go back to it. Quite luckily really then, since this free Enhanced Edition sounds like it might actually be worth the wait. To be clear though, the major launch problems were since fixed.

You can pick up your own copy of Pathfinder: Kingmaker on Humble Store (on sale!), GOG and Steam.

I gave it a try as soon as it was playable on Linux. It really felt like a true successor to the Baldurs Gate games. Great roleplaying! I just decided to wait a little more, because they still worked on it so much. Now it seems the right time will be soon..

I actually ended up removing it from my wishlist based on the reviews. I may well take another look after enough people have had their hands on the update.

I've been meaning to pick this up at some point. Looks fun but at the same time I'm drowning in RPG's I need to get through right now anyways.

The Linux version has gotten better but it could really benefit moving to Vulkan.

PS. The Linux version still had the wrong audio driver file last time I checked (check steam discussions for link to PoE2 one)

True successor to Baldur's Gate games? *sigh* How can I ignore that? I'll have to take a peek at some fresh takes.

I would like to try this game, but reviews are not inspiring. liamdawe maybe you could look deeper and tell, is it worth it's money and time. And is it really as buggy, as reviews say it is.

If you liked Baulders Gate/Icewind then you will LOVE pathfinder.

What makes the game special to me is, that it feels a lot more pen and paper like than say Pillars of Eternity to me. For me it's more adventuring and less game mechanics. I waited so long to play it when it's really ready.
