Author Writes: Square Enix announced today that Final Fantasy XV's four new DLC episodes dubbed "A New Dawn," will now be cut down to just one, Episode Ardyn.
What a turbulent change of events
Oh thank goodness Ardyn wasn't cut.
What about Lunaaaa
Can't have the only interesting character in the game playable. And knowing Square, they'd made her akin to Yuna in FFX-2 because they think fan service sells.
Fan service does sell, believe or not.
I know it does. But square would probably ruin the game with it. When they decide to go cute, they tend to go overboard. I don't mind fan service, but sometimes it just seems really wrong....at least to carry a full game. I can't for the life of me imagine Luna doing any kind of fan service. It just doesn't fit her character.
I finished the original game without playing any of the DLC (even though I have it available). My future goal is to NG+ with all episodes included after this last DLC drops next year. Add it to the backlog! :)
FF15 is the worst FF to date
I dunno man, I would rather play this than 13 or its sequels any day of the week. I’m old school though 4-9 are my favs and while 10 and 12 I like better than 15 I still enjoyed 15 a lot.
13 is much more engrossing better story combat characters sound...I don’t care if it’s linear FF15 is a wanna be WRPG
The story in FFXIII is laughable. It is by far the most confusing and convoluted story in FF history. II, X-2, and the entire 13 trilogy, are worse than XV.
You ever attempted ff1-3? I would argue that the 1st game is better than the 2nd or 3th. 8 still pretty low down there too.
8 is one of the best FF games of all time??
@kyro That’s the saddest thing I’ve heard today... Well besides the real news.
Yea I’m with KyRo on this one, 8 is one of my favorites. I mean that Dollet mission is one of my most memorable moments in gaming. Actually, so much of 8 I could fanboy on about but y’know, opinions and whatnot.
Bra what about that music in 8 though? a god damned masterpiece of an OST.
@god_o_war Fair enough. The music is iconic. Sucks that the actual game is balls tho, bra.
Yeah right, that title goes to 13. Hell there are even worst ones.
Only FF I hate is FFVIII. Yes 8. I hate that it doesn't have a true active mode, which is what I use for all ATB FF games. Also hate the broken and completely exploitable battle system that ruins it all. A great idea that was completely a fail in execution and I think I'd like if they tried to fix the issues. I think FFXV is better than that and FF1-3. Only non ATB game I like better then XV is X and it's not by much. FFX I only like better because I like the characters and story much better. Battle systems like that, where you're mostly forced only 1 way to properly fight, bores me. My top 5 in the main line, no sequels etc. 1. FFIX, FFIV, FFVII, FFVI, FFXIII. Then after FFV and FFXII. The rest are more or less a toss up for me and yup, I played all main line FF and almost all outside main line as well. I just don't like the games without the ATB as much as ATB games. Apart from FFVIII because they ruined the active mode for me which makes me more annoyed battling and seeing the bar stop every time someone attacks etc. Unless it was a weird glitch my copy had. I tried so hard. Put like 20 hours in multiple times and gave up. Hated it so much because of that specifically.
I hated the story, the gameplay (battle system, junction, etc) and the characters. Sorry I don’t relate. I guess I wasn’t an angsty teenager. This debate has gone on since it came out. It’s a bad game, when will people accept that fact :P
Not even remotely close. Try blunting your edges so you don't fall off the cliff next time.
Wow... well so much for that then
Where's the DLC they talked about where we can control other party members? I remember seeing that teased after all the episodes for each party member came out. That's actually the main thing I want added.
Well, if you're thinking about "full control" then that doesn't exist. However you can switch between party members while in combat (as of a patch a few months back).
Ah sweet, I haven't played awhile and didn't know that. Thanks, I'll proly start a new game plus finally because of this.
Yeah as chaosdreams said, this was added in as patch. In order to play as another character you have to unlock the ability in their respective ability grid (sorry its been a while, I've forgot the actual name of the grid xD)
Well it's in the game. I believe it was added just before the summer. But you have to use the AP to unlock the ability. I believe it's on the same grid as the Allies Combat skills
Okay, so how does that affect SE's plans with a second Season Pass??? Are they just going to go ahead and give Ardyn's episode away for free??? (Come on people, a man can hope and dream, can't he? :)
I wanted the Lunafreya DLC. I actually wanted to know about her. Sucks. But ohh well.
Don't worry. They'll just reintroduce them with a subscription at a later date. Please look forward to it.
This game was unfinished trash, and now it will forever remain so. Fitting.
Its not the best but wasnt trash
It was trash. Uneven, unfocused, bland story, bland characters for the most part, generic love interest, half the story was cut out to resell to you and when "completed" it was still incomplete...
Hyped for this game for over 10 years since its announcement. Turned out to be just decent. Def one of my biggest disappointments in gaming
problem is tabata went and cut half of it then redid it in his own way. That left it unfinished.
