Octopath Traveler Now Up for Preorder on Steam, Launching Next Month

Octopath Traveler

Octopath Traveler brings its unique “HD-2D” art style to PC next month, and Square Enix has already put it up for preorder on Steam.

Octopath Traveler released on the Nintendo Switch for USD$59.99 on July 13, 2018, and Square Enix is asking this same price nearly a year later for the PC version.

Preorders are available on Octopath‘s Steam page, and securing a copy early will reward players with 11 exclusive wallpapers that feature beautiful art for the eight main heroes and some of the game’s most memorable locations.

Octopath Traveler is set to launch on PC with Denuvo. For those unfamiliar, Denuvo is an anti-tamper digital rights management (DRM) scheme developed in Austria. In short, this is something that can be licensed and integrated into PC games to make them more difficult to pirate.

Although Octopath Traveler can be preordered today for USD$59.99, it won’t be available to play until June 7, 2019.

Tim Schafer: No Plans for Brutal Legend 2, but ‘Never Say Never’

Published

Brutal Legend

Double Fine’s heavy-metal mashup, Brutal Legend, has gone some time without a proper sequel and Double Fine head Tim Schafer thinks there is still some waiting to do.

During a press Q&A session at E3 2019, Schafer was asked about the possibility of a sequel to the Jack Black-starring action-adventure game. Though Schafer says Double Fine would like to move on to something new first, a sequel may certainly still happen.

“That’s a fun universe, too, that I’d love to back to, but now we’ve been in sequel mode for a few years and it’d be nice to do something new…but never say never.”

Schafer commented on the possibility of a Brutal Legend 2 two years back, stating that fans will eventually see a sequel. During that same report, Schafer teased that Brutal Legend 2 would be an expensive game to make.

This most recent update at least reaffirms Schafer’s fondness for the series, even if the Double Fine team wants a break from sequels.

Brutal Legend released to generally strong reviews, with many praising its comedy and unique world.
