Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata has outlined a number of changes and features that will be introduced to the game over the next year.
“As I?ve said before, release day is not the end for Final Fantasy XV, and I would like to share some of the things we have in store,” Tabata wrote. “The great reception we have received has actually allowed us to expand our plans even further.
“We want you to enjoy Final Fantasy XV for a long time to come. We have been listening to your ideas on how to make the game experience even better, and so in addition to the previously announced content, we?ll be providing free updates to the game throughout the coming year.”
First up, in the short term, the developer plans to make a number of tweaks and changes to the game’s thirteenth chapter, which has been a source of complaints. More details will be shared 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,” he adds. “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.”
In the long term, the plan is to make certain “key characters” playable and add customizable avatars.
Other planned features include a New Game+ option, god mode, low-level run options, new bosses, and limited-time hunts.
In addition to everything above, Square Enix is also working on the game’s premium DLC, which includes new story episodes, new weapons, and an online co-op expansion.
