Tabletop gaming company Paizo's hit role-playing game Pathfinder hits a video-gaming market with Pathfinder: Kingmaker. This role-playing game's definitive edition adds on a turn-based mode, making the transition from tabletop game to video game that much smoother.

According to Oleg Shpilchevskiy, Head of Studio at Owlcat Games:

The turn-based mode brings the game even closer to the tabletop experience, providing the players with more precise control over the battlefield. Our point was to have both modes – real-time with pause and the new turn-based mode – in a perfect co-existence so players can smoothly switch between both to adjust the gameplay at any time to their needs. It settles the long-running debate among the fans which mode is better for Kingmaker since they can go from an action-oriented real-time combat style to a more tactical one within a single encounter.
