Originally released on the Nintendo Switch in 2018, Octopath Traveler is now available on PC and can be purchased through the Steam Store page. It has sold over 1.9 million copies as of January 2019 and remains a popular game being streamed on Twitch.tv (A good way to check out the game before you buy it!).
Ocotopath Traveler puts you in the shoes of eight playable characters who come from different parts of the world Orsterra. Featuring classic turn-based battle system, the game really feels like a classic SNES RPG but with upgraded graphics and gameplay. Dubbed as HD-2D by Square Enix developers, the game's art style is beautiful and fluid, making use of dynamic lighting and seamless transitions between map areas.
Surprisingly, to play Octopath Traveler the recommended System Requirements do suggest having a beefy graphics card such as the GTX 1060. Minimum requirements aren't too bad, with recommending a GTX 750 card, but if you want to play the game without any FPS drops or stuttering, going the way of recommended settings is a good idea.
The game only takes up 5GB of storage and requires at least 6GB of RAM to play. The game was made with the Nintendo Switch in mind, which isn't a very powerful console compared to the PS4 or Xbox One.
