Octopath Traveler 2 arrives by surprise on Xbox Game Pass and PC

As if that were not enough, the first installment finally arrived on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5

Square Enix surprised to gamers with the surprise release of Octopath Traveler 1 to PS4 and PS5 and Octopath Traveler 2 to Xbox consoles via Game Pass meaning the award-winning RPG series is now available to play on all console platforms and PC from NOW.

Octopath Traveler launched in 2018 and has sold more than four million copies on Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox One, and Stadia. In 2023 Octopath Traveler 2 arrived on Switch, PS4, PS5 and PC.

This is a JRPG with a stunning HD-2D art style by combining 2D character designs in beautiful 3D worlds with a fusion of retro pixel art and 3DCG, to even greater heights. In the world of Solistia, eight new travelers venture into an exciting new era.

Both games are a standalone experience set in different worlds with eight different protagonists, each with their own stories to explore and route actions to use. Players will embark on a grand adventure and direct their own journey, depending on who they choose to play as.

Square Enix has also sent out a new update for Octopath Traveler II that adds an 'Extra Battle' mode, which will become available once you defeat the final boss in the last chapter. This new mode will allow you to test your skills against “newly added tough opponents,” which also includes the cast from the original game.

This latest update brings the sequel up to version 1.1.0 and also makes some edits to the credits, various graphics, and adds new tutorial text for the latest update.
