Pathfinder Kingmaker: Region Upgrades

Pathfinder Kingmaker Yekbot

Region Upgrades

Once the story reaches a certain point and you have upgraded your capital to a city, you will start unlocking Upgrades for each Region. Each upgrade provides bonuses either to the kingdom or to exploration.

Upgrades unlock conditions aren’t clear yet but Kingdom stats are definitely involved for some of them, some require the completion of projects and others require the completion of quests. Exploration may also play a part (eg. discover every resource of a region).
