Almost a month ago, it was revealed that OCTOPATH TRAVELER: Champions of the Continent would see a Summer release, with pre-registrations opening up. It was also disclosed that those who wrote quick to register, could be granted early access to the game’s beta on March 22, 2022.
Well, March 22, 2022 has arrived and we can confirm early access is being granted to the lucky few and we are fortunate enough to count ourselves among those selected.
