Surprise Update for Octopath Traveler 2 on Steam Introduces New Boss Fights

In 2023, Octopath Traveler 2 was made available on PC, PS4, PS5, and the Nintendo Switch. Despite the lack of recent updates, a surprise update has now been released on Steam, featuring additional boss battles with recognizable characters.

Octopath Traveler 2 Update Version 1.1

The update, which is currently exclusive to Steam, was released without any prior announcement. The full patch notes for the update version 1.1 can be found in this announcement.

The paragraph contains a Title Screen and has a data attribute for the number of characters and the current count, which is set to 148. It is not injectable.

  • A new mode, called Extra Battles, has been added and can be accessed after completing the story.


  • Updated the credits.
  • Edited multiple graphics.
  • Implemented changes to the tutorial text for new updates.

The most noteworthy aspect of this section is the “Extra Battles”feature, which includes three extra boss fights that become available once the game is completed. For fans of the series, I strongly suggest experiencing these battles without prior knowledge, as they may include some familiar characters that are best kept as a surprise.

If you’re interested in learning more about these bosses, I have provided a list below.
