The Kingsglaive are a group of warriors who have the ability to summon Royal Arms similar to Noctis and the Lucian Kings. Their task is to find clues to the whereabouts of the Crown Prince after his disappearance in Chapter 13.

Gamers can customize the facial features and clothing of their avatars and equip them with weapons, magic, and Royal Arms that will suit their fighting style. The multiplayer DLC will also feature returning supporting characters like Cid, Iris Amcita, Talcott Hester, and Vyz.

Players can approach Cid for weapon upgrades, replenish and boost their health and stats by camping, and take on side quests for additional money just like in the main game. Square Enix will launch "Comrades" multiplayer expansion on October 31 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

More character DLC stories next year

Game director Hajime Tabata announced during the Active Time Report panel that he and his team will continue to develop more content for "FFXV" in response to strong requests from the gaming fans to make more stories to enrich the sequel's lore.
