Free Updates Incoming for Final Fantasy XV: New Game Plus, Expanded Story

Final Fantasy XV has been a massive hit on a global scale. Developers, Square Enix, are amazed at the success of the game and the way players have taken to the game. As a result of this, Square Enix will be providing free updates for Final Fantasy XV throughout the year in addition to their previously announced content.


These free updates include adding gameplay enhancements to Chapter 13 and adding scenes to the story in order to give players a better understanding of character motivation and reasoning. They are hoping to make some pivotal characters playable, as well as introduce customizable avatars. Square Enix is also wanting to add new bosses, achievements, rewards, and new playstyles. On top of that, they are also looking into making minor changes, such as increasing font size for certain languages and so forth.

Our early plans are to enrich certain aspects of the game, adding gameplay enhancements for Chapter 13, buffing ring magic, etc. We’ll have the specifics of what and when for you at a later date.

After that, we’re hoping to delve deeper into the story, adding scenes that will give you new insight into character motivations, such as why Ravus walked the path he did. We will need a little time with these, as they’ll need to be localized and voiced in other languages, but we’ll let you know the details once everything is set.

For the long term, we are looking at making certain key characters playable, and even considering the possibility of customizable avatars, in addition to other features over time.

Other features we have in mind include letting you carry over stats from a previous playthrough, and adding items that introduce new playstyles, such as low-level runs and god mode. We’re also examining readability tweaks – increasing font size – for certain languages. On top of that, we’re looking at content you can enjoy in real-time, including new bosses with exclusive rewards and achievements, and limited-time hunts.

When these updates will be released has yet to be confirmed by Square Enix as it all seems up in the air at the moment, but hopefully it will be soon.
