Pathfinder: Kingmaker official artwork showing the characters

Pathfinder: Kingmaker is an upcoming singleplayer isometric RPG with a bit of a Neverwinter Nights 2 twist. What I mean by this is that instead of simply wondering the land in search of adventure and glory, you will be trying to establish your very own kingdom in the unsurprisingly hostile Stolen Lands. In order to do this you will need to recruit a variety of companions, dispatch all of the local warlords and their cronies, blaze a path through the uncharted wilderness, and naturally, make plenty of difficult decisions since ruling a kingdom is a bit more complex than hitting stuff with a sword.

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in-game, you're in luck as the developers have just posted a somewhat brief "Features Trailer" showcasing everything Pathfinder: Kingmaker has to offer. Have a gander, it's quite an interesting video:

I know basically nothing about the Pathfinder universe, but even so I must admit I'm genuinely excited about Pathfinder: Kingmaker. The whole castle-managing segment was only a minor element of Neverwinter Nights 2 and yet it still remains one of the most memorable parts of the entire game to me, so I think you can imagine how much the very idea behind Pathfinder: Kingmaker appeals to me. Add to that the presence of Chris Avellone (Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment, Fallout: New Vegas, Neverwinter Nights 2) behind the writer's desk and we're talking about a cRPG with an immense amount of potential!

Whether that potential will end up being fulfilled, I suppose we'll find out soon enough as Pathfinder: Kingmaker will be coming in the summer of 2018. And finally, if you would like to learn a little bit more about Pathfinder: Kingmaker's world and characters, you should head on over to the official website.
