It seems Square Enix just isn’t quite done with FFXV. On December 12, there will be yet another event added to the single-player portion of FFXV. This one? Well, for those that play SE’s MMO FFXIV, you’ll be familiar with the primal Garuda. The trailer showcased a Miqote girl that ends up in the FFXV world, teaming up with Noctis and pals to deal with the looming threat of Garuda. Check out the trailer here.
Not only that, there’s now a preview for the upcoming DLC for Ardyn. That’s right, you get to play as the game’s main antagonist. It’s no secret that this DLC for Ardyn was being developed, but now we finally get a trailer with a glimpse into the gameplay. Named ‘Episode Ardyn’, it’s set to release in March of 2019.
Now, on to the multiplayer section of FFXV: Comrades. For those that don’t know, Comrades is the Multiplayer version of FFXV where you can make your own Kingsglaive type character and do missions with other players, or with computer controlled buddies. PS4 and XBOX players will be able to purchases Comrades as a stand-alone game for 9.99 (US). It will be discontinued from the main game for consoles, but those who already have it will have the option to obtain it for free.
For PC players, nothing will change – you will still access Comrades from the main game, and updates will continue to come in. Another update will be released along with the launch of Comrades for consoles on December 12th of 2018.
Also, a bit of bad news. Or good, depending on how you look at it. But after the Ardyn DLC set for March, there will be no more DLC released. There were several more planned, but they’ve all been canceled. While this may be disappointing, it may be for the best, as the game’s been out for two years and perhaps it’s time to move on? Either way, the game had a good run.
