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.

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 »

Spider-Man 2 and The Xbox One Launch

Spider Man 2

On the 17th October 2013 it was announced that the launch of Spider-Man 2 on the Xbox One had been postponed. There were no reasons given. The game is still set to land on pretty much every format on the 2nd of May, but those who were waiting for an Xbox One release were out of luck. Sadly, there is very little to speculate upon here. I have read a couple of rumours online. Some… Read On »

Silent Hill Heading to the PlayStation Vita

Silent Hill

Despite having a fairly slow start, the PlayStation Vita has really started to pick up pace with the number of decent titles being launched for it.

Major Elder Scrolls Online Feature Disabled

Elder Scrolls Online

Those that know me will know that I am in general a pretty laid-back person. I have very little worries in life, particularly when it comes to gaming. There is very little that bugs me. However, there is one thing that will send me into a steaming range each and every time I see it happen; it is the launch of a game which is riddled with bugs that SHOULD have been caught by the… Read On »

Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn Hits 2 Million Subscribers

Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn

I wasted hundreds of hours of my life away on Final Fantasy XI, the first MMORPG to be released under the Final Fantasy banner. Well, I say wasted away, it was not a waste. The game was remarkably enjoyable in its original incarnation. It did have to be toned down quite a lot after the launch of World of Warcraft as the majority of people who were landing on the MMORPG scene were looking for… Read On »

New Borderlands Game Announced

Borderlands The Prequel

Surprised? I certainly am! It seems like only last week (mainly because it was!) that I was browsing through a website that categorically stated that we will not be seeing any sort of Borderlands game in the near future. This is because despite having a couple of ideas the team behind the game really did not know how to execute the idea. Well, today a new Borderlands game has been announced. This game is set… Read On »

Why New Borderlands Game is NOT on Next Generation Consoles

Borderlands The Prequel

If you are trying to keep ‘up to date’ with your gaming news then you will most likely know that at the end of 2014 we will have a brand new Borderlands game launching on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC formats. A key part of the press release was that this game is NOT going to be found on any of the new consoles. Well, not for the foreseeable future at least. This… Read On »
