As if the news that Outriders was coming next month wasn’t enough, Xbox Game Pass subscribers have yet another surprise title to look forward to in a matter of days – Octopath Traveler.
Yes, the game, which originally released as a Nintendo Switch exclusive a while back before making its way to Steam, will now debut on the Xbox platform in both standalone form and as a playable title on Xbox Game Pass. It’s set to arrive on March 25.
For those that missed out on it, there’s a trailer below (the Nintendo Switch one), along with the game’s official description:
“Eight travelers. Eight adventures. Eight roles to play. Embark on an epic journey across the vast and wondrous world of Orsterra and discover the captivating stories of each of the eight travelers. Use each character’s distinctive abilities in and out of battle and make decisions to shape your path.”
The game was a massive hit on previous platforms, and now it should reach out to an even wider audience while debuting on Game Pass.
The Xbox program has become immensely popular over the past few months, thanks to key additions like these. And there’s more to come, as Undertale joins the service today, with Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Ultimate Edition and others joining later this month. Star Wars: Squadrons will also be available later this week, as part of EA Play.
