No Plans For Octopath Traveler DLC
Square Enix has confirmed that there are no plans to release downloadable content for Octopath Traveler, meaning that your adventures in the world of Orsterra won’t be extended beyond the main game.
In an interview with Dengeki Online, producer Masashi Takahashi was asked about whether any downloadable content was in the works, and, in response, he reasoned that the game upon release “is the finished product.”
That’s understandable given that, on Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 2018, Takahashi had revealed that it would take around 60 hours to see the main game through to completion. That playtime can be carried up to as many as 100 hours, for those that choose to explore all the sub-stories and side quests.
The free Octopath Traveler Prologue Demo was released on the Nintendo eShop last week, and lets you choose any of the eight protagonists before having the chance to experience the first three hours from the start of the game. Your progress can then be carried over to the full game whenever you choose to buy it.
Octopath Traveler will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on July 13th.
