Pascal’s Wager: Definitive Edition brings acclaimed Soulslike to PC

Pascal’s Wager – the acclaimed Soulslike action RPG – will be making its way onto PC next month, promising a grim fantasy setting and dynamic battles against a macabre grimoire of foes.


Even if you aren’t a huge fan of mobile gaming, there’s a good RPG fans have come across Pascal’s Wager in the past. It helped showcase the Apple iPhone 11, served up as yet another example of console quality gaming experiences working intuitively on mobile. Now the game is making a reverse leap from phones to PC (which hopefully means a console version is also in the works) and will be available to purchase on PC via Steam from March 12th.

Key features for Pascal’s Wager: Definitive Edition include enhanced visuals up to 4K resolution, an uncapped framerate, and support for keyboard/mouse and controller. This version of the action RPG includes the base game as well as The Tides of Oblivion expansion and other post-release content.

For more info on the core game, here’s an official breakdown:

A deeply challenging iOS Souls-like that begs to be played with a controller, Pascal’s Wager indicates a true maturing of gaming on Apple’s platform.
