Last week, it became all-but-confirmed that 2018's Octopath Traveler would make its way to PC, but the announcement blog post was deleted. Today Square Enix released a trailer officially announcing the PC version, as well as putting up a live Steam page. It is scheduled to be released on June 7.
There are not a lot of PC-specific details in the announcement or Store page, but one interesting note is that it is listed to support Steam Achievements, which will be a new addition for a game that originally released on Switch. It will also have Steam trading cards.
Here is the press release sent out today, though it is largely the same as presented in the deleted post. Our original review of Octopath Traveler can be found here.
Square Enix today announced that the critically acclaimed Octopath Traveler will make its debut on PC on June 7, 2019. The PC version announcement trailer is available here: https://youtu.be/SIAem65CZwg.
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 for PC brings to life the game’s unique HD-2D visuals, blending striking 2D character designs with beautiful 3D world elements.
Octopath Traveler will be available for PC (Steam) on June 7, 2019 with English and Japanese audio, and English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese text.
