Final Fantasy XV” was one of the most highly anticipated games of 2016 as the project had been under development for 10 years. Square Enix managed to release the title last November and it received some fairly mixed reviews. While the graphics were gorgeous, the story fell flat with some plot holes and missed some key details. That said, Square Enix is still working on the game by releasing new DLC for players to enjoy.

Multiplayer expansion

The developers had been teasing a multiplayer Expansion for quite some time now. They managed to push through with their idea by releasing a closed beta for “Comrades,” a “Final Fantasy XV” multiplayer expansion.

Players who were able to try the beta got to create their own characters and explore a bit of the open world.

Now, Gematsu shares that the “Comrades” expansion will officially launch next month on October 31 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If you've bought the game and its Season Pass, you can download “Comrades” for free. If you didn’t, you’ll have to purchase the expansion separately instead. Take note that you’ll need a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold membership to play since it’s an online mode.

“Comrades” has a different story as fans will play as a survivor from the Kingsglaive to learn about Noctis’ mysterious disappearance after the events of Chapter 13 in the main game. Here, players can equip royal sigils, which give them special powers from the Lucian bloodline.

Friends can mix and match their equipment to make a balanced team and take on a variety of quests. Aside from its multiplayer features, the “Final Fantasy XV” expansion also offers some single-player quests that will help enhance and strengthen the player’s avatar.

Other projects

That aside, Square Enix also has a few more projects for the latest game in the series.

They’re planning to release an “FFXV” PC port sometime next year that will support Nvidia technology for better graphics. Similarly, fans can also record and share their adventures with Nvidia GeForce.

Those who are looking for a more casual experience can pick up the mobile edition coming out later this year. While the plot and cast are still the same, the developers have opted for more chibi graphics instead.

The game will play out in an episodic format with 10 episodes in all. The first one will be free while fans will have to pay to unlock the full game. “Final Fantasy XV” is far from over as Square Enix continues to expand its lore.
