If you’re a fan of the Final Fantasy series, you’ve been a very patient gamer. In fact, you’ve been so patient that seven years have passed since the last game was released. Now, at long last, you don’t have much time to wait until Final Fantasy 15 hits the shelves. Here’s the latest news, including a release date, leaks, and some rumors.
Final Fantasy 15 release date
Final Fantasy 15 will be released to the world on November 29 and will come with a free one-day patch. This patch called the Crown Update will add new in-game scenes taken from Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV to make the story more understandable for new layers.
The Crown Update also adds new functionality to the game, allowing users to share photos taken while playing to Twitter or Facebook. Extra features of this update include increased recipes, camera improvements for better combat visibility, and the inclusion of a “Beast Whistle,” which enables a player to call a monster to aid him/her in battle.
Take a look at the new extended trailer for Final Fantasy 15 below. It gives an overview of the characters, combat system, and story.
With exactly one week to go before the game is released, some gamers can’t wait any longer, and thanks to unscrupulous retailers, many have been able to get their hands on the game early. This has come as a shock and an annoyance to both Square Enix and Final Fantasy 15 director Hajime Tabata, who had a message to convey to those who are flouting the release date and leaking videos online.
Developer Square Enix has also stated that it will take down content from the game that is published online before the launch date. According to DigitalSpy, spoiler videos have been making headlines around the world, with sites like 4Chan and NeoGaf publishing details.
As far as Final Fantasy 15 spoilers go, Square Enix has been keeping interest in the game going by releasing information. Generally, in the form of minor details, gameplay information, and plot points, this is not enough to be a spoiler. It’s just enough, in the developer’s opinion, to keep people happy. On the other hand, there’s lots of information it wants to keep private until the launch, such as certain chapters of the story, critical game plot points, gameplay mechanics and more.
So in support of the game’s myriad of developers and others who have worked on the game, we won’t be posting any links to videos or sites with spoiler information. Instead, please watch the video above to get more of an idea of what Final Fantasy 15 is all about.
With the imminent release of Final Fantasy 15, this next installment will supposedly usher in a gaming experience not found anywhere else. While official details are still thin, it’s clear that Square Enix wants to maintain the legendary status of the franchise. We will have to wait and see if the developer has managed to do that when it launches on Nov. 29 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
