The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Beta Playtest was released as a free PDF in August 2008 and in a softcover print edition at Gen Con 2008 as part of the Pathfinder RPG playtest, then sold through the Paizo store and retailers, making it the first Pathfinder Roleplaying Game product. The beta rules were the result of extensive public playtesting and expanded the content and options to produce a standalone game. The Beta release's content was refined into the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook.
