Pathfinder: Kingmaker is receiving a season pass with three incoming DLC packs, starting in December
Pathfinder: Kingmaker has had a lot of work done since its launch in September. Several hotfixes and one giant update later, the game is inarguably in a much better place than it was at release, when I couldn't even finish my review playthrough of the game. It seems like the team at Owlcat is finally able to shift slightly away from bandaging up their original launch and move onto post-release content, and they've announced a season pass containing three DLC packs to be released between now and next summer.
The first DLC, The Wildcards, is coming in just a couple weeks, and focuses on adding a new Tiefling companion and related quests to Kingmaker. The following expansions include a new campaign chapter and then a procedurally generated dungeon of sorts. Here is a slight description of each incoming DLC and an estimated timetable for their respective releases, per Owlcat:
DLC #1 - “The Wildcards”
Ardent adventurers of The Stolen Lands will soon have the chance to play the first new DLC! Featuring a new playable race Tieflings, a new playable class Kineticists, and of course combining a race with a class, you get a character! Prepare to welcome your new companion, the Tiefling Kineticist who comes, just like every other companion, with her own rich and engaging storyline.
Oleg Shpilchevsky, Head Of Owlcat Games explains, “A new playable race. During the poll to decide which bonus race we were going to add to the game, one particular option was requested a lot (besides the winner - Aasimars): Tieflings, the people with a drop of demonic blood in their veins. They didn't make it into the base game, but became the natural choice for the first piece of post-release content.”
DLC #2 - “Varnhold's Lot”
A new bonus campaign. While celebrating your victory at Jamandi Aldori's mansion, you've met another hero of the Stolen Lands: the mercenary captain Maegar Varn. While you're building your barony in the Shrike Hills and Narlmarshes, Varn and his people are establishing their own nation of Varnhold in the rocky foothills of Dunsward. What did they have to face? Play this new story, and export the consequences of the choices you've made there into the main campaign! This exciting new side story is about the size of one chapter of our main campaign and will take 6-12 hours to complete, depending on your playstyle.
DLC #3 – “Beneath The Stolen Lands”
A new game mode. Sometimes you want to play a story with memorable characters, rich lore, and a complicated set of choices and consequences. But then there are days when you just want to grab a sword, cast some spells, and destroy a horde of monsters! This DLC will introduce a rogue-like randomly generated endless dungeon, complete with a new unique boss. You can explore it in a separate game, or as a part of your main campaign. How deep can you go?
The Season Pass and the first DLC “The Wildcards” is due to be released on December 6 2018.
