In Octopath Traveler, players 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. Rather than only taking control of one hero and a crew of other folks, Octopath Traveler instead features eight distinct characters that each have their own tales to enjoy. Players start the game as one of the eight characters, and then from there, recruit the other seven in whichever order the player chooses.
Exploring all that Octopath Traveler has to offer will surely take some time as there are a slew of quests to complete, exciting boss fights to conquer, powerful gear to get, and so much more.
