Octopath Traveler Game Gets PC Release in June
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The game shipped worldwide in July 2018 for the Nintendo Switch. At the beginning of the game, players choose one of the characters to follow, but can meet the others along the way. Players can swap recruited characters into their party of four at taverns. All stories are accessible via one playthrough.
Each of the main characters has a different path action that can be used in the field. For example, Olberic can challenge other characters to duels, while Ophilia can guide NPCs to where they need to go. Each character also has a unique talent that can be used in battle.
The same team who worked on the Bravely Default game worked on Octopath Traveler.
Square Enix had announced in March that it is producing a new smartphone RPG in its Octopath Traveler game series titled Octopath Traveler Tairiku no Hasha (Octopath Traveler: Ruler of the Continent). The game's story takes place in the same Orsterra continent as the original game, but is set a few years before the start of the story. Square Enix will launch the game this year, and it will be free to play with optional in-game purchases for items. Square Enix also hinted at a new console game in the series.
