Octopath Traveler
 
Octopath Traveler coming to PC on June 7

Octopath Traveler is coming to PC via Steam on June 7, publisher Square Enix announced in a now-deleted blog post.

The RPG first launched for Switch worldwide in July 2018. A smartphone prequel called Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent is currently in development.

Here is the PC announcement blog post in full:

We have some very exciting news for PC gamers. Octopath Traveler is coming to Steam on June 7, 2019! So, yknow, add it to your Wishlist now.

The critically-acclaimed RPG has previously only been available on Nintendo Switch, so this will be the first time non-Nintendo owners can experience the game.

What is Octopath Traveler about?

Set in the beautiful, but dangerous, world of Osterra, Octopath Traveler puts you in control of 8 unique heroes – each with their own skillset, motivations and storylines. You can play as:

Olberic: an experienced knight in search of redemption.
Cyrus: a scholar whose book smarts don’t always equate to common sense.
Tressa: an enthusiastic merchant who is travelling the world to hone her skills.
Ophelia: a noble cleric on a pilgrimage to Orsterra’s holy sites.
Primrose: a fallen noble on a quest to avenge her murdered father.
Alfyn: a naive apothecary determined to help people whatever the cost.
Therion: a skilled thief trapped in an impossible situation.
H’annit: an expert hunter, tracking down her missing master.

You can start the game with any of those characters, and build your party in any order you want. Each one has a distinct class, and unique ‘Path Actions’ – abilities they can use out of combat to progress their adventure.

For example, Therion can steal items from NPCs, Olberic can start a scrap with pretty much anyone, and H’annit can tame wild beasts.

Over the course of the party’s various adventures, you’ll explore 8 vast regions full of stories, side-quests to discover, and gruesome creatures to battle against.

Speaking of battles, Octopath Traveler has a battle system that’s easy to understand, but imbued with impressive tactical depth.

It’s based around ‘breaking’ your targets – every enemy has a shield, and you need to take advantage of their weaknesses to break it and put them into a vulnerable state which essentially stuns them for a turn.

Finally, it would be remiss not to comment on how it looks. Octopath Traveler combines realistic 3D environments with classic RPG-inspired character sprites. It’s an utterly distinctive visual style and absolutely stunning – especially in motion.

How do I get Octopath Traveler on PC?

Octopath Traveler will be available to buy from Steam and the Square Enix Store. Add it to your Wishlist now!

looking cute, now they just need to release an awesome remake of FF Tactics on PC

I've played it on my switch - combat can be difficult and the battles can be long.

I heard a lot of good things about this game and I enjoyed the SNES Final Fantasy games. So I was actually thinking of buying this on release instead of waiting for discounts like I usually do.

But, holy ****, they're asking a lot for this. I'm not spending $85 (Canadian) on it.

Yeah, lol. I can pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 for less :D

For whatever reason it's about $79cdn on GMG! Yay!

MNB4800 Jun 16, 2019 11:37 AM

I'll wait for it to be on sale. I feel it fits $30 perfectly.

borat Jul 11, 2019 02:56 PM

Not quite $30 yet but there's a surprisingly good discount on Steam now, considering it's just over a month old!

(Is it $42 USD??)

Sasquach Jul 11, 2019 03:04 PM

Didn't realize this was coming to PC.

But I think some titles just work better on console vs PC. Something like this (8bit-ish RPG) isn't going to do the PC any favors, I'd rather play it on console.

It hardly looks any different than it does on Switch.

borat Jul 11, 2019 04:36 PM

You don't think it'll sell much on PC?

I like these sorts of games on a portable system, but why would it be any better on PS or XBOX?

MNB4800 Jul 13, 2019 04:23 AM

It is currently on sale down to $42. I grabbed a copy.
