The multiplayer Final Fantasy XV update, known as Comrades, is available now.
We said this before when we announced the release date, and we’ll say it again now: the bros are the heart and soul of Final Fantasy XV. Noctis’ gap year road trip with his buddies is an average RPG at best, but as a bonding adventure and an exercise in enjoying the little things, it’s magic.
So we’re still not entirely sure why you’d prefer to play the game online with real people, and not Gladio, Ignis and Prompto. Yet, here we are, with the Final Fantasy XV Comrades update.
To paraphrase the great Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park, Square Enix’s scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.
In order to explain away this
abomination new DLC, Square Enix have come up with a canonical way of introducing a team of four friends to a game that already had the perfect team of four friends:
“Taking place after the events of Chapter 13 in the main game, Comrades puts fans in the shoes of the remaining survivors of the Kingsglaive as they fight to restore the Light to the world during Noctis’s absence. To commemorate the release of the expansion, a new game update was also implemented recently allowing players to accept multiple hunt quests at one time and adding new cooking recipes.”
And also, the character creation tool is pretty cool. We still consider the Comrades update a bit of a curio compared to the joy of the game proper, but anything that extends the playable life of Final Fantasy XV for fans can only be a good thing.
Players who have the season pass can download the Final Fantasy XV Comrades update for free right now. Otherwise, you can purchase the update as a standalone for US$19.99.
