Octopath Traveler coming to PC on June 7

Posted by TurtleGirl On April - 16 - 2019

Square Enix announced Octopath Traveler is coming to PC via Steam on June 7. Check out the trailer below.
 


 

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.
