And here's a press release with some extra information:
Moscow, Russia, September 10, 2021 — Owlcat Games and META Publishing announced with pride that Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous has surpassed 250,000 copies on PC alone during its first week of sales. As well as seeing more than double the number of concurrent players during the first weekend enjoying the game compared to Kingmaker launch! But it’s not just all exciting numbers, players and press alike have given overwhelmingly positive feedback.
“For a long time, we’ve been working extremely hard on making Wrath of the Righteous everything we originally conceived at the start of development and even more after the phenomenal support during the Kickstarter campaign. We wanted this to be a landmark moment for CRPG fans, pushing the genre into new spaces, with mechanics that tried to give players an experience that brings the flexibility and freedom found in Tabletop adventures,” says Creative Director Alexander Mishulin. “We’re glad that players and critics are really feeling that we’ve given them that and even more. We truly are overwhelmed with the response”. As with every video game launch, there are still issues to solve. Owlcat is already working around the clock to resolve these and give players a truly friction-free experience. With 3 patches already released and more coming every week, the team isn’t slowing down now that the game is live.
“This is truly a big moment, no doubts here. And it’s only the beginning! We’re determined to give players what they expect, and I’m genuinely blown away by the energy the Owlcat Team is putting into fixing the issues players are reporting. It’s really awesome to see!” Says Ilya Salamatov, CEO of META Publishing. “It goes without saying that we’re listening to the community incredibly closely, so please keep your feedback coming, as it’s invaluable to us.”
Meanwhile, Owlcat teamed up with Creative Director at Paizo James Jacobs to create a video that dives into the background lore of Wrath of the Righteous - to help ease some players into the Pathfinder setting overall, and give a bit more insight into the Worldwound itself.
