Wrath of the Righteous as a CRPG gives you one major option, whereas many other genre titles are locked into one school of thought. Yes, you can choose to play as either real-time with pause or pure turn-based. This gives players the freedom to pick a playset that works for them, whether they want to channel the classic Black Isle vibes or simply work within pure turn windows. You can switch between these game modes as you wish in-game, so you can experiment and find the one that works for you.
Wrath of the Righteous also features nine Mythic Paths to explore, allowing players to obtain godlike abilities and powers far beyond the scope of normal CRPGs. These are game-changing toolkits that can radically transform an entire playthrough and all gameplay options at any given time. Forget casting a big fire spell; we’re talking about controlling and altering the flow of time, becoming an actual Dragon, Lich, Angel, or an Insatiable Swarm. Yeah. That’s the first time I’ve seen playing as an Insatiable Swarm as an option, so I’m going to be checking out that one.
