The lights are on
Whether you do or do not like aspects of Final Fantasy XV's story, Square Enix says it plans to make some changes to it as part of the company's free update plans for the title.
In a blog post on the Square Enix site, FF XV director Hajime Tabata says that the developer has been listening to fan feedback about how to make the title better. Thus, apart from the already planned post-release content, free updates are coming in 2017.
In the post, Tabata says:
Our early plans are to enrich certain aspects of the game, adding gameplay enhancements for Chapter 13, buffing ring magic, etc. We'll have the specifics of what and when for you at a later date.
After that, we're hoping to delve deeper into the story, adding scenes that will give you new insight into character motivations, such as why Ravus walked the path he did. We will need a little time with these, as they'll need to be localized and voiced in other languages, but we'll let you know the details once everything is set.
For the long term, we are looking at making certain key characters playable, and even considering the possibility of customizable avatars, in addition to other features over time.
Other features we have in mind include letting you carry over stats from a previous playthrough, and adding items that introduce new playstyles, such as low-level runs and god mode. We're also examining readability tweaks – increasing font size – for certain languages. On top of that, we're looking at content you can enjoy in real-time, including new bosses with exclusive rewards and achievements, and limited-time hunts.
