Eight travelers. Eight adventures. Eight roles to play.
Our tagline for the game sums it all up pretty well and starting today you’ll be able to experience the compelling characters, intense battles, and gorgeous visuals of Octopath Traveler on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S as well as with Xbox Game Pass.
From the start you’ll be invited to select one of eight characters (Olberic, Cyrus, Tressa, Ophilia, Primrose, Alfyn, Therion, or H’aanit) each with their own stories to uncover, unique abilities (in and out of battle) and side quests to complete. Some of you may have already noticed the connection between the first letter of each of their names… You’ll embark on an epic journey across the vast and wondrous world of Orsterra and discover each traveler’s full story as their journey unfolds.
The combat system in the game is easy to pick up, get into and play, but with so much to uncover, learn and experiment with – take turns in battle to identify and target the weaknesses of your enemies, then break through those defences to emerge victorious against even the most formidable of foes.
All of this is wrapped up in a very distinct set of visuals. Octopath Traveler brings the style of classic RPGs to the modern era with what we’ve termed “HD-2D” graphics. These feature expressive 2D character sprites set against beautiful realistic elements in a 3D world. This certainly isn’t your regular 2D RPG and as you start to play Octopath Traveler you’ll begin to understand what we mean.
To finish, we just wanted to say that we’ve been absolutely delighted to see how excited everyone has been to hear that Octopath Traveler is coming to Xbox, and we’re excited to announce that it’s also available on Xbox Game Pass on console, cloud, and PC starting today!
We hope you enjoy the journey ahead!
