Octopath Traveler is definitely coming to the PC June 7, because today the point of no return for this release appeared: Square officially set up preorders on Steam.
Is there a point to pre-ordering something that will never run out of copies due to its digital nature? It depends on what extras are being offered and whether you’re interested. A beta test isn’t possible due to this game being already playable on Switch, so Square is offering eleven desktop wallpapers featuring detailed art of the environments and characters.
Launched in 2018 (and tested with a demo in 2017), Octopath Traveler takes inspiration from Square’s roots by presenting pixelated characters and environments rendered in a 3D focus. We’re not aware at this time of any differences or improvements the PC version of Octopath could sport in comparison to the Switch original….we just know it’s coming.
In OCTOPATH TRAVELER, players will set forth on an epic adventure through the enchanting yet perilous continent of Orsterra, stretching across vast landscapes from lush forests, to desert outposts and snow-swept cathedrals. Featuring eight distinct characters each with their own tales to enjoy, ranging from journeys of self-discovery to quests for revenge, each traveler will start their journey in a different land so players can steer their own journey depending on whom they choose.
Octopath Traveler is expanding its reach in other ways….a prequel game was announced for mobile devices last March.
