Owlcat Games' decision to go for crowdfunding for Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous turned out to be the right one as the initial goal had been overshot by $1 after 20 days of the campaign, prompting the team to introduce a new race and Spanish localisation.

One would be correct if they assumed that Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is a highly anticipated game, with the latest Kickstarter numbers coming in to prove it. The crowdfunding campaign was set to last for 35 days in total and will end on 11 March 2020 but it has been nothing but major success from day one when the backers already pledged enough funds to meet the developers' goal.

Just over three weeks later, on 25th day of the campaign, the funding had gone over $1.3 million, meaning that more than one million US dollars were pledged after the goal was met. Naturally, this means stretch goals as the developers promissed various new features like the additional Mythic Paths, fire-breathing bear and more.

At the time of writing, the crowdfunding was well on the way to knock down the latest stretch goal which would add a new race to the game - the Oread. These people were normal humans once but at some point during their ancestry, a being of elemental earth altered them, giving them earth-based powers and features.

They are not all Owlcat will add with this stretch goal though. The team announced they would also add Spanish localisation to the existing list as all in-game text will be translated to Spanish. However, there is no mention of full localisation, meaning that voice acting will probably not be translated.

Owlcat Games will most likely add more stretch goals after this one since there are two weeks left before the campaign ends and if the pace of crowdfunding continues the way it has up until now, the team is probably looking at a total of at least $2 million to help the project.
