The boys are back in town this October.
Final Fantasy XV is a bit good, perhaps far better than it probably had any right to be. I thoroughly enjoyed the cars, camping, cooking, chocobos, and cocking around with Noctis’ best buds, Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto. I’m not saying it totally fails as an RPG but without the open world larks, it’d be a scruffy, incomplete shell.
Even though the best bits of the game are through your friendship with Noctis’ bros, someone at Square Enix has asked the question: What if you swapped your make believe friends for real ones?
Enter the Final Fantasy XV multiplayer update, known as Comrades. We got our hands on it in August as part of a limited beta, to kick the tyres and test out its performance, and it was… alright. The character creation was cool, though.
Yes, entering the vast open world of Eos with three friends sounds like a good idea, and the Final Fantasy XV multiplayer update promises to throw in a chunk of co-op specific content too, but without Gladio, Iggy and Prompto by your side? It’s just not the same.
The Final Fantasy XV Comrades DLC launches on October 31st, 2017, and will be available for free for anyone who holds the game’s season pass. You’ll also be able to buy it separately, but we haven’t had any word on the pricing yet.
You’ll miss those boys, though. We guarantee it.
