Un avviso del tutto inaspettato quello di Hajime Tabata per quanto concerne il mondo di Final Fantasy XV. Sembra infatti che il game director di Square Enix abbia annunciato ulteriori DLC del titolo disponibili già nel corso del 2019. Di seguito un estratto delle dichiarazioni rilasciate.



        Based on the user survey put out, the average satisfaction rate of the scenario as a whole was 62.4 percent, so Tabata thought it was necessary to ensure a suitable development period for the upcoming downloadable content without being concerned about releasing them in 2018. For that reason, the content will likely spill into 2019.

The downloadable content planned from this point on is being made with the mindset of completing the “Final Fantasy XV Universe” (the general term for the main game and its related works). For that reason, they are laying the content out as an “additional series” rather than “additional content.”

  •     From Famitsu‘s Interview

        Tabata does not think users want them to fill in the gaps of the main story anymore, and since Final Fantasy XV cannot be completed even on the creative side, new developments different from the current Episode add-ons are being considered.

The first new Episode add-on will be “Episode Ardyn,” which was the one most requested in the user survey. After that, there may even be an “Episode Luna,” as Tabata mentioned during the “Active Time Report” official news broadcast.

Including “Episode Ardyn,” four new “Episodes” are being produced into 2019.

Regarding original elements in Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition, Tabata could not say anything at the moment, but there are mods and multiplayer quests may be improved. However, there are no differences in the story.

Total worldwide sales for Final Fantasy XV have topped seven million.

  •     Regarding Mods in Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition

          Square Enix will release an official mod creation tool after the release of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition.

Tabata said that rather than just play the game how developers assume users will play, it is better to have users play the game on a broader basis. He thinks the ways that users overcome what the developers conceived is interesting.

Mods will even support surreal ways of playing, like changing all of the character models to Kenny Crow.

Model data is being prepared on the user side, which will allow players to freely change models.

There are plans in place to later on be able to create maps, quests, and scenarios with the tool.

Come si legge nella prima parte, i contenuti dei DLC avranno il compito di completare la saga di Final Fantasy XV, si parla dunque di “serie aggiuntive” piuttosto che “contenuti aggiuntivi”. Tabata sostiene, infatti, quello che è il pensiero della comunity ovvero completare le lacune della storia principale. Il primo contenuto aggiuntivo, così come si legge nell’intervista, sarà “Episode Ardyn”, titolo fortemente voluto dagli utenti tramite sondaggio. Successivamente potrebbe esserci un “Episode Luna”, come menzionato da Tabata durante il broadcast ufficiale “Active Time Report”. Nell’ultima parte dell’intervista Square Enix ha dichiarato che rilascerà un strumento di creazione ufficiale di mod, dopo l’uscita di Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition.

In attesa di altre informazioni ufficiali più dettagliate non resta che aspettare il 6 Marzo, data di rilascio di Final Fantasy su PC e della Royal Edition.
