Final Fantasy XV Demo Update Coming in June
Just like how Noctis and the boys headed to Cidney's garage to fix their ride, Final Fantasy XV's Episode Duscae demo is getting an overhaul.
Siliconera reports that Version 2.0 of Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae is launching in early June. Announced on Square Enix's official Japanese Twitter, this massive patch for Episode Duscae is going to be adding all kinds of changes to the Final Fantasy XV demo, especially in regards to its camera, battle system, controls and more. The demo itself consisted of a large, open play area where Noctis and the gang had to go out into the wild and hunt monsters so they could pay their mechanic, Cidney, to fix their vehicle. In the demo, you control Noctis, who uses a variety of teleporting weapons that helped him dictate the pace of combat, whether it was against soldiers, imps, the local wildlife or a Behemoth. There was also an awesome Eidolon included that series fans should definitely recognize.
Last month, Final Fantasy XV's director Hajime Tabata explained many of these updates. In particular, Habata's team is adding an improved lock-on system, a smoother camera, upgraded AI, a jump to full HD, increased speed, a minimap/compass, a normal dodge (that doesn't use MP), additional difficulty settings and a lot of error/bug fixes.
While no launch window or release date has been set, Final Fantasy XV will be launching for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We have a feeling we won't be seeing it until well into 2016. Unfortunately, the demo is still exclusive to those who bought early copies of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.
