Right before the spookiest night of the year Owlcat Games and Deep Silver would like to say thank you to all the fans who played the game so far and take this opportunity to announce a free DLC for Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

The “blood on characters” will add more realism to the game as the faces of your trusted companions and awful enemies are stained with red and their clothes will be soaked in blood during the fight.

Here’s how it works:

Bloodstains appear on a character or creature according to the amount of Hit Points they have left. The more wounded a character, the more bloody and battered they look. First blood splatters appear when their Hit Points go down below 80%.

Of course, not all creatures in Pathfinder can have bloodstains at all. As you would expect, those who don’t have blood – elemental and incorporeal creatures, for example – are not affected by this feature. Also, while humanoids and animals bleed red, this isn’t so for others: for example, the undead show black stains on their clothes, and plants drip green sap.

To clean up your wounded companions, you need to restore their Hit Points by either letting your party rest or using healing abilities.

Players may control the visibility of the new feature with a special setting – “Bloodstains” – which can be found on the “Game” page of the Options menu. The setting is turned on by default.
