The next major piece of content for Final Fantasy XV, the multiplayer mode Comrades, has been delayed.
Square Enix made the delay announcement on Twitter, with the reason revolving around offering “the best possible experience” to players by making “final adjustments.” Thankfully, the initial October 31st launch date has only been moved back slightly to early November. However, no specific date in that timeframe was given.

Once the new multiplayer mode launches, players can expect an expansion of the story that ended with chapter 13 of the main game. Following the disappearance of Noctis, it’s up to members of the Kingsglaive to track him down and discover what led to his fall in the first place. Players will have the ability to create a custom character that can be joined in online play by up to three friends.
The game’s season pass will include the Comrades expansion, as well as future DLC. Square Enix previously announced Noctis’ road trip buddies—Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis—will be added to the multiplayer mode as playable characters. New story missions are also a part of the projected new content, including Ignis’ standalone story mission.
Apart from Comrades, Final Fantasy XV‘s off-shoot game, Monster of the Deep, will launch for PlayStation VR on November 21st. A PC version of the main RPG will also arrive sometime in 2018.
Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
