Final Fantasy XV Announces Standalone Multiplayer Release and FFXIV Crossover

A recent Final Fantasy XV anniversary livestream had a whole lot to say to mark the game’s two-year anniversary, and while most of the announcements are understandably single-player focused, there are a couple of multiplayer-related tidbits in there. Namely, a standalone release for the multiplayer Comrades mode and a crossover event with Final Fantasy XIV.

Multiplayer: Comrades, the small-scale online co-op multiplayer mode of the game that was released last year, is now going to be its own standalone title for Xbox One and PS4. This effectively shuts down the mode’s inclusion from the original title, though the PC version will continue to receive these updates.

This new release will introduce 10 new bosses for players to face off against. It will arrive on December 12th at 5pm PST and will cost $9.99 for new arrivals or will be granted for free to those who purchased the expansion previously.

As for the Final Fantasy XIV crossover event, that will also arrive on December 12th as a free update to all Final Fantasy XV players. The crossover quest will introduce Noctis and his companions to the Miqo’te Y’jhimei, ultimately culminating in a fight against the wind Primal Garuda from FFXIV. Special XIV-themed costumes await as a reward for completing this event.

Naturally, there are trailers for these updates. The XIV collab trailer can be viewed here and the latest Comrades trailer is here.

Our Thoughts

It’s interesting that they’ve decided to release Comrades as a standalone title on consoles, but considering that the original game’s DLC is winding down, perhaps they’re trying to trim as much as they can. In any case, we do hope that fans of this particular title enjoy both the online multiplayer and the collab event.

Final Fantasy XV’s Online Multiplayer Mode Gets a Release Date

If you’re hungry to roam the world of Eos, then you’ve got a date with destiny. Or at least several miniquests. Final Fantasy XV: Comrades, the online multiplayer mode of the single-player RPG, has confirmed its release date.

Comrades will let players become a surviving member of the Kingsglaive, granting them the ability to equip royal sigils that provide special powers from the Lucian royal bloodline. Players can then form up with three other players to take on a variety of quests and battles in the world. Players can also take up single-player quests in order to power up their custom avatars.

Final Fantasy XV: Comrades is due to go live on Tuesday, October 31st for Xbox One and PS4. The new content is available to those who either purchase the content expansion itself or the game’s Season Pass DLC bundle. Additionally, players will need to be either an Xbox Live Gold member or a PSN Plus member. More information can be read on the website.

Our Thoughts

This is easily one of the more unique DLC updates to Final Fantasy XV…or any Final Fantasy game in general. We’re certainly looking forward to reaction to this new mode as well as perhaps trying our hand at this new content ourselves!
