About Pathologic Classic HD

About this game

Witness the return of the original Indie cult classic, fully restored and more evocative than ever, with your Pathologic Classic HD Steam PC key. You'll see the 'definitive edition' of the psychological first-person survival game, which represents a unique and unforgettable experience as it transports you into a weird town that crouches, ominous, in the far reaches of an ancient steppe.

EERIE TIMES
It was once a small drover settlement, huddled around a monstrous abattoir - but something about the butchery it was near has changed it. It has developed an odd social structure over the course of several generations.

It could have quietly continued along its weird way, but a sudden outbreak of an unknown and inevitably lethal disease has decimated the citizens. Prayers did not help. Science did not help.

Finally, they have turned to outsiders for help, three of which enter the town in hope of finding a cure or, failing that, an explanation. The first outsider was a ruthless investigator, assigned by local authorities.

The second is a far-sighted Ripper who has used his extraordinary abilities to gain a reputation as an ingenious surgeon, who has come to the town in search of his father's terrible heritage. The third and last outsider is an eccentric girl rumored to have mystic healing abilities, she may become the town's salvation were it not for the constant fear that plagues her, the memory of the horrors of her recent past.

MUCH MORE THAN JUST SURVIVAL
On the surface, Pathologic is a first-person horror adventure game where you control one of three 'heroes'. Dig deeper, however, and you’ll find an experience that will affect your emotional and psychological state.

In the world of Pathologic, you’ll find yourself in situations where morals and good deeds are meaningless in the face of raw despair and endless need. Talk to the denizens of the town and decide for yourself if you wish to ease someone else’s pain or save every bit of precious medicine to protect yourself from the invisible and inexorable plague.

Become a witness to the miasma of horror as the plague begins to overcome the town. You'll experience 70+ hours of real-time gameplay without grinding or repetitive quests.

As time goes by, more and more things happen, inviting you to participate and change the course of events.

GO EXPLORE
Pathologic is an open-world game. While the plot is there to grab you, the town has no artificial boundaries: you are free to explore it from day one, carving out your own story. Survival is tough in this world - the dying town demands that you constantly keep an eye on your status, maintaining a full belly and decent immunity... and will require tough choices.

Communicate, barter, rob, or steal. There are many ways to acquire your bare necessities, each of them with its own benefits and drawbacks.

BRAND NEW CONTENT
For the first time ever, the game has cast off the major issue that had previously disallowed international audiences from accessing it, with a new in-house English script, as well as brand-new voice overs.

Various amounts of text that had previously been cut from the international version of the game has now been restored. Enjoy updated textures and higher resolutions support and new visual effects.

In addition, the game includes a fan-made Polish translation, thanks to the hard work and generosity of Jakub Derdziak & Aldona Derdziak - and an Italian translation, kindly donated by the original translators of the game, Stefano Gaburri and Claudio Todeschini.

YOUR OFFICIAL PATHOLOGIC CLASSIC HD STEAM PC KEY GIVES YOU:

  • 70-plus hours of real-time gameplay.
  • Brand-new features and improvements.
  • Three playable characters with unique storylines.
  • An indie cult classic with a critically-acclaimed plot.
