by Rainier on April 15, 2019 @ 9:15 a.m. PDT

Octopath Traveler is an RPG brought to life through a mixture of CG, pixel art and visual wizardry.

Embark on a vast new role-playing adventure as one of eight travelers, all with their own origins, paths, and goals. Where to begin? Who to team up with? Where to go next? Only you can decide.

Each traveler can use a distinct Path Action, a specialized way of achieving objectives and interacting with people you encounter. The warrior can "challenge" people to a duel, whereas the dancer can "allure" others to follow her, even into battle! Enjoy the freedom to choose your own path while experiencing the story through the role you play. Combat revolves around the Boost system, a fusion of traditional turn-based battling and modern enhancements. Each turn, build up BP that can be spent to dramatically increase your strength or provide aid. Identifying when to Boost may just be the key to victory.


Octopath Traveler for PC brings to life the game’s unique HD-2D visuals, blending striking 2D character designs with beautiful 3D world elements.

Key Features:

  • Play as eight different characters, each with their own stories to uncover and side quests to complete
  • Explore the enchanting yet perilous world of Orsterra, spanning 8 vast regions and discover each character’s full story as their journey unfolds
  • Use each character's distinctive abilities (Path Actions), skills and talents in frenetic battles
  • Enjoy the accessible yet deep turn-based combat battle system and break through enemy lines by identifying and targeting their weaknesses
  • Solve side quests and story scenarios in a few different ways and take decisions that shape your path
  • Experience visuals inspired by retro 2D RPGs with beautiful realistic elements set in a 3D world

Currently available on Nintendo Switch, Octopath Traveler will be available on PC starting June 7, 2019, with English and Japanese audio, and English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese text.
