Final Fantasy XV PC Port and New Content
Final Fantasy XV might be coming up on a year old but there’s still plenty of new announcements that are keeping it in the spotlight. The big news from Square Enix out of Gamescom was that Final Fantasy XV is confirmed for PC and will be coming to the platform in 2018. The PC port will come with all DLC packed in, including the upcoming multiplayer mode.
Notably, game director Hajime Tabata has confirmed that the PC version will have mod support, something he’s hoped to include for a very long time.
“I think one of the biggest things [PC] players can expect is mod support,” he said in an interview at Gamescom. “We definitely want to do it. We haven’t actually managed to get our full modding policy or discussions on that finished but at the moment we do really want to do it. We’ll have the full details around autumn time.”
In other Final Fantasy XV news, a pocket version of the game will release episodically on mobile. The pocket version is to feature cutesy chibi style graphics, retelling the story of the game’s console version across ten episodes, the first of which is free.
Another Final Fantasy XV announcement that caught the eye this week was the somewhat bizarre collaboration with the Assassin’s Creed franchise. A surprise reveal trailer showed an Assassin’s Creed-themed festival overtaking the streets of Lestallum. Beyond some cool gameplay, in which we see Noctis climbing, running down narrow areas, and using the iconic hidden blade, it seems the free DLC will weave in a story of some sort, too.
The Assassin’s Festival will be available as a free download for Final Fantasy XV starting on Aug. 31, on PS4 and Xbox One. Fans will be able to access the event from that date all the way up until Jan. 31, 2018.
