I am looking forward to this coming out soon for ps4. No news yet, but the enhanced edition is soon to be out for PC. Isometric RPGs usually top my list of favorite games. Anyone else looking forward to this or hear any news of its ps4 release?

@Elodin I don’t think I’ve ever played an isometric rpg, There aren’t really that many available on PS4 are there? Seems like a genre mostly trapped on PC.
Forgive my ignorance, but what are the essential qualities of an isometric rpg other than graphically it has the stable viewpoint whereby the camera has that static perspective? Is there some other components to the games that make them unique? I’m asking out of honest curiosity.

I think I may have played a little bit of one back on PS2 but I’m not sure. I can’t even remember the name of the game but I recall searching dungeons from that top down perspective in a game once, but other than that I’m completely uninitiated with that type of game. I’ve been interested to try Divinity Original Sin I/II (but have been put off by the length of the game) — to me it looks like an isometric rpg but the internet does not categorize it as such. What’s the difference?

Sorry for the dumb questions, but when I looked at Pathfinder Kingmaker it prompted them. 😄

@Th3solution A Isometiric game is all about the view angle yes. Not 100% top/down or side, but more 45 degrees. The reason I like them is part nostalgic i.e. I played all the Bauldurs Gate and Icewind Dale games back in the day. Also many Isometric RPGS are groups of players you control. This reminds me of playing D&D back in the day. Current ps4 isometric RPGS: Diablo 3, Path of Exile, Divinity original sin 1 &2 and a few more my mind is drawing a blank on.

I'm very interested in this, I've played BG 1 & 2 and loved them. I'll be interested in how this plays on console as I've only played this type of game on PC. I know Pathfinder will have differences to D&D but that doesn't bother me. I've seen some reviews etc online and it looks impressive. I'll be looking out for this for sure!

@Elodin Pillars of Eternity was another one to come to PS4. I played a little of it, unfortunately I just couldn't get into the story, but perhaps I need to give it another shot.

@Danny_C I enjoyed Pillars, but the load times killed that game for me. Maybe if I play it again I'll have other things to do during the load times. Pathfinders is the closest d&d game I believe. It seems closest to D&D 3.5 many calling it D&D 3.75. Hopefully the game plays that way too.

@Elodin Basically it is D&D 3.75 edition. When Wizards of the Coast decided to overhaul D&D ruleset for 4th edition alot of 3rd edition players were not happy with the changes and that's where Pathfinder came from. It took the OGL of 3rd Edition and tweaked it bit making it closer to 3.5 edition then 4th edition was.
