In the game, they can customize their own character, whether if it is a hero or a villain, with its wide range of classes and their respective abilities, skills, and feats, as well as and including specialized archetypes and powerful arcane and divine spells.

This will make players to have their own freedom in creating a character that they envision, as well as being fit for both of their individual gameplay style and personalities.

As players ventures the world of Kingmaker, including its hard wilderness, they will meet a diverse cast of non-playable characters (NPCs) that will be their companions in their journey.

According to Gamespace.com, they will decide who they would trust, as each of these NPCs will have its own agenda, alignment, and goals that will be different from theirs. These elements might change along the way, and the game's progression, as players will help them shape their lives.

The Enhanced Edition of Kingmaker includes a lot of updated in-game features, as well as new content, abilities, classes, items, and weapons, as well as tweaked parts of the base game that will make their experience within it more enjoyable.

Wrath of the Righteous, on the other hand, was inspired by Pathfinder, Paizo's ruleset for Dungeons and Dragons, which is also the basis behind Kingmaker, however the developers stressed that both of these games are not corelated to each other.

The said indirect Pathfinder sequel will introduce the special Mythic Transformations mechanic, where according to Rock Paper Shotgun, players can now choose to what their characters wants to transform into, either an Angel, a Demon, a Lich, a Trickster, an Aeon, or a Gold Dragon.

Along with the mythical creatures are their abilities and skills that they will also unlock along the way.
