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.

Ubisoft Pledge to Continue Support for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 For Years to Come


We are in the midst of a new console generation. As a result, there is always a fear for gamers that if they do not upgrade their console to the latest incarnation they are going to be left behind for the latest and greatest games. This is a massive problem as the new consoles are more expensive than ever before, and of course, the money situation around the world is not exactly the best. Thankfully… Read On »

Microsoft: Look Forward to Game-Centric Xbox One Presentation at E3

EA Hits a New Low with In-App Payments for Dungeon Keeper

Dungeon Keeper

I do not know whether you have been keeping up with the most recent gaming news. However, if you have, then you will probably notice that Dungeon Keeper, the latest mobile game from EA, has not been faring too well in the reviews. Perhaps the main reason for this game to receive such low reviews is that it is not really a free to play game. It is a free to boot application which will… Read On »

Sid Meier Hits Humble Bundle

Sid Meier's Civilization V

Random fact here: Did you know that Sid Meier actually has very little to do with the games that bear his name? In fact, he has had virtually no input on Civilization games since the first incarnation. However, his name is used as a form of branding. It has been that way for years, and it will be like that way for years to come. After all, almost all of us associate Sid Meier’s name… Read On »

Expect News on Xbox One Games With Gold Soon

Games With Gold

This is not news that I expected to hear any time soon. It really is not. When I first heard the Gold for Games news announced way back in E3 last year it was intended to be nothing more than a cool little incentive to help prepare people for the Xbox One launch. It extended far beyond that though. In case you are unaware, Games with Gold is a ‘free game’ program offered to those… Read On »

Final Borderlands 2 Downloadable Content Hitting in April

Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2, the popular RPG/FPS hybrid from Gearbox is well-renowned amongst gamers for the steady stream of Downloadable Content (herein referred to as DLC) that it has generated since its release. In fact, this is probably one of the few games which has outstripped the remits of its season pass and continued to release content beyond that.

Is Grand Theft Auto V Heading to PC?

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V caused an absolute storm on consoles at the tail end of last year. The Scottish-developed game was one of the most pre-ordered games in history. The game has earned millions so far and with micro-transaction functionality built into the game I am willing to bet that it is going to generate millions more. It therefore should come as no surprise that rumours are abound that Grand Theft Auto V is heading… Read On »
