Octopath Traveler 2 Discounted To Best Price Yet For Consoles And PC

One of the best RPGs of the year is discounted at Amazon and Green Man Gaming.


Octopath Traveler II is one of the best turn-based RPGs in recent memory, and it's still on sale for its best price yet. The PS5, Nintendo Switch, and PS4 versions of Octopath Traveler II are discounted to only $40 at Amazon. PC players can get the stellar RPG for even less at Green Man Gaming. Octopath Traveler II, which is down to $36 for GMG XP members (free rewards program) is just one of a handful of excellent role-playing and strategy games included in GMG's Summer Sale.

In case you haven't heard of this series from Square Enix, Octopath Traveler II is an old-school RPG that mixes classic gameplay influences from the NES and SNES eras with fantastic HD-2D visuals. It looks both modern and retro in its design, and it has a wealth of content to experience as you explore the lives of several characters. Like the first game, Octopath Traveler II has a deep Final Fantasy-style class and customization system mixed with non-linear exploration, which is influenced by other JRPG heavyweights such as the SaGa and Bravely Default series.

Basically, if you're looking for a game that will consume dozens of your hours with terrific storytelling, intense turn-based battles, and gorgeous visuals, Octopath Traveler II is highly recommended.

"Octopath Traveler II is an ideal sequel. It builds upon the foundations of the original by improving on what worked, establishing common pillars of design and gameplay--combat mechanics, Path Actions, freeform progress--that will hopefully carry forth through future games," Heidi Kemps wrote in GameSpot's Octopath Traveler II review. "It also iterates upon concepts and ideas borrowed from other JRPGs--the day/night cycle and Latent Abilities--that enhance the overall experience. Octopath Traveler II is a delight from start to finish, and has left me looking forward to seeing where this series will take itself in the future."
