This Week In Games: Octopath Travels To The PC

It's the week before E3, which is typically one of the quietest weeks of the year. There's still a smattering of indies and quirkier titles though, including the PC release of Justin Roiland's game, a new Battletech expansion, The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr, that cooking simulator called Cooking Simulator, and the PC release of Octopath Traveller.

I guess it's not that quiet a week, after all.

If you're after games that are different, there's a ton of interesting titles out there. The Road to Guangdong adventure, a game about going on a roadtrip with some relatives to revive the family business, is a game about keeping a beaten car on the road as you travel.

Prime World Defenders hits the Switch, a neat tower defence game that's been on the PC for a fair while. Hue is getting a Switch port as well, where you change the background colour of the world to solve puzzles. There's Slay the Spire, She and the Light Bearer, and plenty more.

Here's the lineup for the week:

  • Trover Saves The Universe (PC)
  • Stellaris: Ancient Relics Story Pack (PC)
  • Battletech: Urban Warfare (PC)
  • Hue (Switch)
  • MotoGP 19 (PC, PS4, XBO)
  • Night Lights (PC)
  • Prime World Defenders (Switch)
  • Red Siren Space Defence (Switch)
  • Road to Guangdong (PC)
  • Hell Let Loose (PC)
  • Chains of Valhalla (Switch)
  • Refunct (Switch)
  • Artifact Adventure Gaiden DX (Switch)
  • Slay the Spire (Switch)
  • She and the Light Bearer (Switch)
  • Timespinner (Switch)
  • Legend of the Tetrarchs (Switch)
  • The Sushi Spinnery (Switch)
  • Perchang (Switch)
  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr (PC, PS4, XBO)
  • Warhammer: Chaosbane (PC, XBO)
  • Party Golf (XBO)

Trailer time. We'll start with Hue, so you can get a sense of how the world-shifting mechanic works again.

That Trover ad is bizarre. Anyway, that's what's out this week — anything you like, or will you be holding off for the surprises that launch next week (which is becoming more and more common).


    I'm excited for Lapis x Labyrinth coming to Switch at the end of the week! Looks like a JRPG Spelunky on 'roids!

    Also, I wish I had liked Octopath more, but the characters never interacted with eachother meaningfully, and although I liked the combat, the whole thing felt like too much of a thinned down Bravely Default experience with none of the depth needed to keep more serious players around.

    Really hope the sequel can deliver more!

    Anyone know if Octopath will have cross progression with the Switch?

    Octopath Traveller is $89.95 AUD on Steam.

    That's a fucken' NOPE. Disgusting pricing. Torrent time.
