Final Fantasy XV Comrades Delayed Into November
The online multiplayer mode for Final Fantasy XV, which was originally supposed to launch this month, has been delayed. In a post made to Twitter by Square Enix's official Final Fantasy XV account, the company states the expansion will now release in early November to make final adjustments and create the best possible experience. No specific date has been given at this time.
Announced this past summer, Comrades is set between chapters 13 and 14 of the main game. With their own custom made characters, players can collect meteor shards to power generators, which expand the available roster of activities, complete side quests for NPCs, and populate towns with different NPC civilians and leaders. Players can also earn experience to level up their characters, collect loot, and communicate through preset phrases and voice chat.
This was definitely a good move for Square Enix. The game's beta testing back in August was plagued with server and matchmaking errors to the point that some players couldn't even log on. The mode has potential though, so taking the time to make it work is more than welcome.
