Obsidian Entertainment and Asmodee Digital have announced a new content update for role-playing card game, Pathfinder Adventures, will be released next week. The Rise of the Goblins campaign introduces two new characters, Poog and Ranzak, as they go through the first of more adventure decks to come.
Pathfinder Adventures Lead Producer, Ryan Rucinski, had this to say of the new campaign:
“We have wanted to explore the world of Rise of the Runelords from the goblin perspective for some time now. Now, with the game being available on PC, we felt it would be a great piece for our first bit of content post-launch. The goblins have a different approach to their play style and we are sure that Pathfinder fans will be very pleased with what we’ve done.”
The Rise of the Goblins will be available for $8.99 as content that will work in both the PC and the mobile versions of Pathfinder Adventures. Not only will it bring along Poog, Ranzak, and an adventure deck of their own, but it also includes goblin designs of all of the iconic Pathfinder characters as well as a unique set of dice.
I got my hands on Pathfinder Adventures just a week ago and found it to be a pretty faithful adaptation, giving it a score of 7.5 out of 10, as “ultimately, Pathfinder Adventures is an enjoyable way to play Pathfinder by yourself, and is a pretty solid card-based RPG. Obsidian did a fantastic job of making sure the game plays as well in digital as it does on tabletop. ”
Dedicated fans of tabletop roleplaying and card games will feel right at home playing Pathfinder Adventures, developing their characters, acquiring amazing items, overcoming dastardly villains, and uncovering secret mysteries, all with a roll of the dice. Pathfinder Adventures allows players to play how they want and personalize their deck to take down the strongest of enemies. Challenges abound in Heroic and Legendary difficulty levels that reap higher rewards. The destiny of the adventurer is in the cards!
