Owlcat Games has announced that the Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Inevitable Excess DLC release date has been delayed, owing to a need to better balance the encounters in this content pack.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is the newest game in Owlcat's series of CRPGs. It launched late last year, following up on a beta that debuted earlier in 2021. Since launch, the developers have been focusing on its first post-launch DLC Inevitable Excess.
Inevitable Excess will be a high-level DLC that provides players with challenging encounters. Those of you who are already playing the core game will be able to import your character and their companions; otherwise, you can create a new high-level character in order to jump right into this new content. The DLC was supposed to launch tomorrow, but Owlcat Games has just announced that it's pushing back the launch date of this DLC.
When is the Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Inevitable Excess DLC Release Date?
The Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Inevitable Excess DLC release date is now Thursday, March 3, 2022. That's a little more than two weeks after its originally-planned launch date of February 15.
"[...] some of the new battle encounters we designed didn’t convey our intentions properly, and we felt like the new enemies and their mechanical features needed more balancing," read a Steam News post (via Reddit). "And so, with a heavy heart, we have to admit that we need additional time before we can let you play this DLC."
While it may be disappointing to have to wait a little longer, it's understandable that Owlcat Games wants to ensure the best experience possible for its players. For now, you can buy the core game Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous for PC starting at $49.99 or your regional equivalent via the game's official website. The console versions of this game are expected to launch later this year.
