It’s the game that never ends…
At PAX East, Square Enix announced updates to Final Fantasy XV. This involves its multiplayer mode, Comrades, which will update the game twice in this year. They also announce that 4 character will have their own episodes in 2019. They are Ardyn Izunia, Aranea Highwind, Luna Freya, and Noctis Caelum.
For Comrades, it will get a standalone version in the Summer this year. This is odd move. The multiplayer serves to compliment the single player, ala Mass Effect 3. Data from the multiplayer mode is incorporate into single player, such as your character avatar and progress. Why would you separate it if its already part of the Royal Edition packed in? Do people want to only play the multiplayer only?
