Octopath Traveler, NieR: Automata Coming to Xbox Game Pass
Octopath Traveler is coming to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC on March 25, Microsoft announced, and it's not the only big name coming soon to Game Pass. NieR: Automata, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, and Torchlight 3, are also landing on Game Pass in March.
Octopath Traveler was formerly a Nintendo Switch exclusive when it released in 2019. Then Square Enix launched a PC port in 2020, but this marks the first time Octopath Traveler — and a newer Square Enix RPG in general — is playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. We called Octopath Traveler a "return to form" for Square Enix and a JRPG with both "style and class."
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Ultimate Edition (PC), Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (PC, console, cloud), and Genesis Noir (PC, console) join Octopath Traveler on the same day.
A week before that, on March 18, NieR: Automata (PC), Torchlight 3 (PC), Star Wars Squadrons (PC), and Empire of Sin (PC, console, cloud) launch on Game Pass.
It's a good time to be a Square Enix fan on Game Pass. All this is in addition to the recent Outriders on Game Pass announcement.
