Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer Expansion Revealed

That is right! The long awaited multiplayer expansion for Final Fantasy XV is about to hit, and boy is it shaping up to be amazing!

By now, you should probably know what the Final Fantasy XV multiplayer update entails. If you don’t, then boy are you in for a treat! In this DLC, you and up to three other people will be able to complete various quests and battles together. The game is set shortly after Chapter 13 of the game. We know that a few of those people who are reading may not have played the game, so we are going to try and keep this spoiler free as much as possible!

Final Fantasy XVIn this update, entitled ‘Comrades’, players will play the role of a member of the Kingsglaive. You will be given royal sigils that contain fantastic powers. These powers will (hopefully) be unique to each player in the team. The idea is that you will be able to balance your team out based upon the powers that each one of your holds. It will act as a sort-of MMORPG in that regard.

Of course, this update is all about creating a character and improving it. While the bulk of the action is going to take place online, Square Enix have promised that there will be several single player quests that you will be able to dive into too. These single player quests are all about enhancing your character and improving your overall ‘strength’ so that you can tackle those even bigger multiplayer missions.

At the moment, there is no indication as to the scope of the multiplayer experience. We are willing to wager that you will be able to lose a few dozen hours in the DLC, if not more. The wonderful thing about the way in which this is being set-up is that Square Enix are leaving open the possibility that the multiplayer experience can be expanded upon in the future. They will already have the online code in place, as well as the way in which they run their missions. However, of course, you can expect them to charge for any further updates to the multiplayer experience.

Comrades will be released starting on October 31st 2017. Those who have the season pass for the game will be able to download the multiplayer expansion without paying anything additional. Those who just want the DLC will need to pay for it. At the moment, we have no word on pricing. We can’t imagine that it is going to be on the cheaper side of things, though. This is promising to be a rather substantial update to the Final Fantasy XV world. Of course, this update is currently only scheduled to hit the PS4 and the Xbox One (you will need to subscribe to the online service for these platforms). However, the full game is going to be released on the PC in the future. Square Enix have promised that the expansion will be coming to it too.

Final Fantasy XV May be Coming to Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch

We know that PC will be getting Final Fantasy XV soon. We also know that a ‘trimmed down’ version will be hitting mobile devices. This means that the only console left without the Final Fantasy XV game in some form would be the Nintendo Switch. However, this looks set to all change. The Nintendo Switch has, of course, been selling like hotcakes. By all accounts, it was the biggest selling console in the last quarter.… Read On »

Oculus Rift Add-On Allows You To Experience Smells

Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift, as we all know, is a virtual reality device. This nifty little headset is designed to thrust us straight into the game world. Now; from what I have seen, the Oculus Rift performs incredibly well. It is not a complete virtual reality system right now though…or at least not yet. You see; it only plays on the visual representation of the world, and the sound of course. For true immersion you really… Read On »

The Evil within: First Story DLC Released

The Evil Within

I absolutely love Story DLC. Not enough companies produce it nowadays. Most companies seem to produce a couple of skins for their weapons or perhaps add a new map and call it a day. This is not how DLC should be done. DLC should properly expand on the game, much like the expansion packs of days gone by. Thankfully the developers behind ‘The Evil Within’ have the right idea. They have just launched the first… Read On »

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 fans were incredibly excited when they discovered that their versions of the games were getting more music than the original versions of Grand Theft Auto V.

Heists for GTA V Finally Launched

Grand Theft Auto V

It has been a long time since Grand Theft Auto V was launched for consoles. Even before the game was launched we were promised a rather nifty feature for GTA Online called ‘heists’. This feature was not there at launch. It has been teased by Rockstar every month since. I eventually started getting to the point where I believed that Heists were nothing more than a myth. I believed that they would never be added… Read On »

Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 2, Coming 17th March 2014

Tales from the Borderlands

I am not lying here. Tales from the Borderlands, one of the latest episodic games from Telltale Games, has finally been given a release date. No joke. This is something that I have been waiting since November for, and the day has finally arrived. I must admit I, like many other people, were getting a little bit agitated with the fact that Telltale was not announcing a single thing about Tales from the Borderlands Episode… Read On »

The Joys of Retro Gaming

Nintendo NES

I remember getting a Christmas present many years back. It was a NES.  It came with Super Mario Bros. 2. I had absolutely no idea what it was, but that box seemed damn interesting (I was about 5). Little did I know that owning that console would completely change my life. For the next couple of years I played the NES extensively. I owned only a few games. Much of my time was spent on… Read On »

Games With Gold

Those with a Gold subscription to Xbox Live will no doubt be eagerly anticipating whatever free games are going to land the following month. I mean; the game offering was absolutely abysmal at the beginning of Games with Gold, but the offering has now substantially improved and I believe that what Microsoft do firmly rivals PlayStation Plus. On this page I want to take a little peek at the various offerings in March. The first… Read On »

Xbox One to be Bundled WITHOUT the Kinect

New XBox One

Remember when Microsoft said that the Xbox One would NEVER be sold without the Kinect? Well, here we are just 6 months later and it is being sold without the Kinect. Well, not yet, but it will be pretty soon. One of the main selling features of the Xbox One (well, one of the main features at least, many people were none too happy at the fact that it was included) was the fact that… Read On »
