Obsidian Could be Developing a Pathfinder Game
The beans might have been accidentally spilled on one of Obsidian Entertainment’s next projects, and it will take the developer back to familiar roots.
Pathfinder developer Adam Daigle teased a picture of Pathfinder banners on Facebook from this week’s upcoming Gen Con in Indiana, which shows off a banner with the Pathfinder and Obsidian Entertainment logos on it. The post has since been deleted, but we still have the photo.
Pathfinder is a relatively new pen-and-paper game first published by Paizo Publishing in 2009. The game is a spin off and extension of the 3rd edition of Dungeons & Dragons, making changes to player classes, adding abilities and more. If Obsidian is developing a Pathfinder game it would be a return to familiar ground, as the developer had previously worked with the Dungeons & Dragons IP back in 2006 to produce Neverwinter Nights 2.
The potential leak also goes on to make sense of the reports that Obsidian was looking for a UI Artist for a “Ground Breaking” and “Next Generation Game.” In addition, it also supports an earlier OXM report that Obsidian was looking for a level designer that would be “planning and populating missions/quests, scripted sequences, encounters, challenges and rewards” with desirable traits including “a love of role-playing and action games.”
Would you be excited for a Pathfinder RPG game? Would a potential spiritual successor to Neverwinter Nights 2 something you’d be interested in playing? Let us know in the comment section below.
