Final Fantasy XV update 1.18 is now available to download. Square Enix released the latest patch for their popular role-playing game, and it features “various bug fixes” & Xbox One X support. Sadly, the Final Fantasy XV update 1.18 patch notes aren’t very thorough, so there’s not much else we know at the moment.
Check out the Final Fantasy XV update 1.18 patch notes below:
- Removal of the two new fish added in Version 1.16
- Various bug fixes
- Xbox One X Support
Considering the patch is over 4GB in size (over 7GB on Xbox One), there’s probably more in the patch that Square Enix hasn’t fully detailed. If more detailed patch notes are released, we’ll make sure to update the post.
The best parts of Final Fantasy XV are not unfolding the epic story, completing side quests, or your first summon (although that is pretty damn cool), but the bonding of these four friends as they try to survive being hunted by the empire. I often preferred watching Ignis drive the team instead of fast traveling because of the interactions between the friends. It’s a blast checking out the photos Prompto took during the day around the campfire. It’s heartwarming listening to the team tease one another, especially when Noctis takes on yet another fetch quest. You can’t help but smile when Noctis celebrates with a teammate after executing a linked attack. FFXV may be a grand epic about saving the world from evil, but at its heart, it’s about the incredible bonds of friendship, true friendship. This isn’t some party that came together unexpectedly because the world is coming to an end; these four have been friends since they were kids. It doesn’t matter that Noctis’ friends are his guard now, because you know they would be protecting him all the same if they weren’t guards or if he wasn’t the prince. Final Fantasy games of the past have had numerous touching moments, but none have been quite like this.
Square Enix has taken quite a few risks with Final Fantasy XV to make it different from past installments or even JRPGs overall. Despite some graphical issues, they have pulled off an amazing experience, and it’s one that veterans and newcomers alike can immensely enjoy. This road trip has been well worth the wait.
