CRPG for Consoles!

Pathfinder: Kingmaker is sprawling CRPG based that's been out on PC for a while now, but it hasn't been available on consoles - until now. Later this year, fans of Paizo's Pathfinder will be able to play the full Kingmaker experience on Xbox One and PS4.

Announced during IGN's Summer of Gaming, Pathfinder: Kingmaker will finally land on consoles on August 18th, 2020. The port was originally promised several years ago now. Included in this "definitive edition" are all the DLCs from the PC game, so rest assured you won't be missing anything PC players have.

 
 

For those unaware, Pathfinder: Kingmaker is the product of a successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2018. It received almost a million dollars, which is no small feat nowadays. The setting is based on the tabletop version of the same name.

You can get your hands on Pathfinder: Kingmaker on consoles on August 18th, 2020, which should give players ample time to prepare for the sequel, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.


Quick Take

It's tricky, porting a CRPG to the console. It's definitely a genre that is mainly on the PC, so it's really no wonder why this port took so long. It's hard to say how the game itself will feel and perform without playing it on consoles, but I feel like it would be an extreme hassle, especially in combat. Managing your units in combat with a controller doesn't sound fun? Who knows, maybe Owlcat Games found the winning formula? But I still think it's best left to PC.

Are you going to play this when it comes to consoles? Let us know in the comments below!
