Square Enix adds:

The unbreakable bond that young Noctis has with his father King Regis is about to be tested – in the face of difficult decisions surrounding the growing war between his kingdom and the invading Empire.

Final Fantasy XV is a spectacular fantasy based on reality that is destined to become a modern masterpiece.

As for the story of Final Fantasy XV, it follows Crown Prince Noctis and his comrades as they try to survive on the road after the forces of Niflheim launch a surprise assault on the Kingdom of Lucis.

Story

In a matter of days, the Kingdom of Lucis is to sign an armistice, ending a long and bitter conflict with Niflheim. Ahead of the ceremony, Prince Noctis, heir to the Lucian throne, sets forth from his homeland to formalize the union of states through his marriage to the Lady Lunafreya of the imperial province of Tenebrae.

The offer of peace, however, is no more than a ruse to lower the Lucian shield, and the imperial army takes the crown city and its sacred crystal in one fell swoop. En route to his destination, Noctis is shocked to learn that he, his father the king, and his betrothed are believed dead.

Overnight, the dream of peace has faded into a distant memory. His world crumbling around him, Noctis has naught but his resolve and his loyal companions to see him through the trials to come.

The next Active Time Report is happening today at 9am PT/12pm ET and will be livestreamed on Twitch.

Final Fantasy XV is in development for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but Square Enix has yet to announce a release window.
