Owlcat Games and Deep Silver have announced a Pathfinder: Kingmaker season pass for three big updates in the form of paid DLC. Since it released in September, Pathfinder: Kingmaker has been pumping out hotfixes and updates to fix the large number of bugs that were present on release. With these three DLC announced, it's good to see that they are clearly committed to supporting the game for quite a while yet.

Coming out on December 6, the first DLC is titled The Wildcards, and will include several new features. The Tiefling is a new playable race of demonic descent. A new class will also be added - the Kineticist, which is some sort of elemental power conduit, useful in both close and ranged combat. The final addition to The Wildcards is a new companion character, which is - you guessed it - a Tiefling Kineticist, complete with her own story and quests.

What class is the huge golden guy? I want to play that.

Varnhold's Lot is the second DLC, due for release in February 2019, and will feature a brand new extra campaign. It's set directly after the events of Pathfinder: Kingmaker. You'll meet a new player in the Stolen Lands, a mercenary captain called Maegar Varn. He's establishing his own nation of Varnhold (check out the ego on this guy) in Dunsward but has run into trouble. That's where you come in. Interestingly, the choices you made in your normal campaign will carry over into this one.

 

The final DLC, named Beneath Stolen Lands, will come out in April of next year. It includes a game mode with a randomly generated dungeon with a new unique boss. The idea is for the player to be able to replay this dungeon over and over without getting bored. This game mode can be played as part of a campaign or as a standalone game.

The Season pass is available for purchase from Steam for $24.99/€24.99/£21.99, and from GOG (price not yet determined).
