Final Fantasy XV Update

At Tokyo Game Show 2017, Square Enix announced that the next Final Fantasy XV update would add in new story content to address plot holes, and it’s now available. The Final Fantasy XV September update is now available for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it adds in a new event to chapter 12 of the role-playing game. According to developer Square Enix, this new addition “explains the events that led to the War of the Astrals.”

Check out the official announcement below:

In case you missed it, here’s what director Hajime Tabata recently said about why the team went for a focus on expansions rather than sequels:

“What we’re trying to do with that is to depict that missing 10 years of history right at the end of the story,” Tabata said, referring to a late chapter in the main game. Players create their own member of the Kingsglaive, the army that protected and fought for the kingdom of Eos, during the Comrades campaign.

“If we had tried to do that as a traditional, full-scale sequel, that would have been very difficult,” the director said, “but it works really well in [keeping] that continued relationship with fans.”

Final Fantasy XV is out now for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
