Final Fantasy XV

Hajime Tabata, director of Final Fantasy XV, has announced today that the game will receive free updates troughout the coming year next to the previously announced downloadable content.

As I’ve said before, release day is not the end for Final Fantasy XV, and I would like to share some of the things we have in store. The great reception we have received has actually allowed us to expand our plans even further. 

We want you to enjoy Final Fantasy XV for a long time to come. We have been listening to your ideas on how to make the game experience even better, and so in addition to the previously announced content, we’ll be providing free updates to the game throughout the coming year.

Our early plans are to enrich certain aspects of the game, adding gameplay enhancements for Chapter 13, buffing ring magic, etc. We’ll have the specifics of what and when for you at a later date.

After that, we’re hoping to delve deeper into the story, adding scenes that will give you new insight into character motivations, such as why Ravus walked the path he did. We will need a little time with these, as they’ll need to be localized and voiced in other languages, but we’ll let you know the details once everything is set.

For the long term, we are looking at making certain key characters playable, and even considering the possibility of customizable avatars, in addition to other features over time.

Other features we have in mind include letting you carry over stats from a previous playthrough, and adding items that introduce new playstyles, such as low-level runs and god mode. We’re also examining readability tweaks - increasing font size - for certain languages. On top of that, we’re looking at content you can enjoy in real-time, including new bosses with exclusive rewards and achievements, and limited-time hunts.

In addition to these free updates, we’re also working on the previously announced downloadable content. This includes:

  • FFXV Holiday Pack (tentative name)
  • FFXV Booster Pack (tentative name)
  • FFXV Episode Gladiolus (tentative name)
  • FFXV Episode Ignis (tentative name)
  • FFXV Episode Prompto (tentative name)
  • FFXV Expansion Pack: Comrades (tentative name)

Speaking on behalf of the development team, I hope all of you, all around the world, continue to enjoy Final Fantasy XV and the Final Fantasy series.

After 10 years in development, the rename from Final Fantasy Versus XIII, the switch from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Final Fantasy XV is now available worldwide!

Yesterday the European Launch Event was held in Antwerp, Belgium. Special guests at this event were art directors Tomohiro Hasegawa and Takashi Honjo and Afrojack, who played some of his favorite tracks from Final Fantasy games and his collabration to Final Fantasy XV called Braver.

Also the Japanese Launch Event was streamed yesterday. During this event they showed a special version called Mystery Disc that has been created specially for this stream. It starts with Noctis leaving the others behind in search of Prompto, who have gone missing. I won't spoil the rest, but it's wierd, that's for sure.

Following the recent news that Final Fantasy XV is already available in some area's, Game Director Hajime Tabata issued the following message to the fans:

The November 29th release date is approaching and I sincerely hope everyone enjoys this game with a fresh state of mind. Unfortunately, there has been an unauthorized distribution of the boxed edition of FINAL FANTASY XV in select regions and we have noticed that gameplay footage from people playing these copies has appeared online. Though this type of situation is brought on by various region specific circumstances and may not be something that is completely avoidable, we are very regretful of this situation.

One of the major goals of FINAL FANTASY XV is for everyone to enjoy the story and to discover the surprises together through the simultaneous worldwide release. Due to these recent events, videos with unexpected spoilers could potentially be posted online, so we would like to warn everyone who has been waiting in anticipation for this game.

We will also do everything in our capacity to prevent unauthorized footage from appearing online. We would also like to ask anybody that has obtained an early copy of the game to be respectful to those that are looking forward to the official release and to not spoil the surprises for everyone.

A large and dedicated team have worked extremely hard to make this game and to create a FINAL FANTASY that everyone can enjoy. It would be a huge regret for us if the excitement of the launch was to be spoiled for so many when we are so close to release.

Your understanding and cooperation would be much appreciated so we can celebrate the best possible release together.

Following this information Square Enix has also released a new trailer highlighting everything players need to know before beginning their epic journey through the world of Eos on 29 November.

Last year I travelled around the world and attended many game events. I felt an amazing passion and sense of expectation towards Final Fantasy XV from series fans everywhere. From seeing that I really wanted to make it so that the fans could enjoy the game for longer and evolve and expand it even further. I will take these feelings and give them form, to deliver an amazing experience.
