After Square Enix released Final Fantasy XV‘s bro-specicfic narrative DLCs Episode Gladiolus and Episode Prompto, most were surprised to see that they were fairly stand-alone adventures, that couldn’t be played as a chapter integrated within the game’s primary story.
DualShockers had a chat with Game Director Hajime Tabata, and we all asked him whether there is a possibility for these stories to be integrated over the story because their chapter, but we still notice that there’s not any plan at the moment. According to Tabata-san, the game introduced is considered “the primary narrative,” although the personality DLCs are a supplementary encounter.
That being said, Tabata-san also said that the team got a sense of what users wish to see as persona DLCs as a result of a survey done in the spring. While they could t all of these perform, they definitely want to appear into the possibility of producing character DLCs for the characters that are highly requested.
We hear this the reason why Tabata-san is at PAX is that he wishes to listen to comments at a community collecting that is planned right from the fansbecause it occurred through Gamescom. The intention is to have a feeling of what the fans want and what characteristics they need, and also use that feedback. In the community event in Cologne, by way of example backstory to get Ardyn was requested, and Luna was also appointed a whole lot. The fans want to see more story content covering several facets that weren’t given the spotlight at the campaign.
Square Enix is continuing to update Final Fantasy XV for both PS4 along with Xbox One, and they recently released patch 1.15, also that the Assassin’s Festival crossover occasion ib cooperation using all the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
Final Fantasy XV is now accessible for PS4 and Xbox One, although the Windows Edition will release on PC via Steam in early 2018. The Pocket Edition will start this fall for Android, iOS and Windows 10.
