Final Fantasy XV Update Due in March; Episode Gladiolus and More

Final Fantasy XV Crafting Items Locations

Final Fantasy XV has had its fair share of controversy, like the questionable new features and game mechanics which haven’t really panned out in either the game or the player’s favor. The director of the game Hajime Tabata said some time back that there will be new content planned for the chapter and we are not going to see some gameplay improvements in this month’s Final Fantasy XV patch.

The game’s March update was confirmed at PAX 2017 by the Producer Haruyoshi Sawatari and was planned to be launched before the Gladiolus DLC, which includes new content.

So there is an update planned for this month that includes enhancements to chapter 13. So before, obviously, it was just Noctis by himself, kind of alone without the powers of his weapon summoning abilities. But what we’ve done for chapter 13, is we’ve added a separate route for Gladio and Ignis after they get split off from Noctis, so you actually get to play as Gladio, and see what happened from their side of things until they reunited with Noctis. You’ll see some additional cutscenes [that] just show you what took place while Noctis was kind of on his own. You’ll get some actual gameplay with the party of Gladio and Ignis together. You’ll see what happened to Emperor Aldercapt and Revis, and where they ended up being during the whole time. These are just the supplementary scenes that were added into chapter 13, and that’s just for chapter 13. But aside from that, we’re overhauling the ring magic, so the three spells that you could use with the Ring of the Lucii, those are completely powerful now, like super powerful now. So those are some other things to look forward to.

He also confirmed that the Gladiolus DLC will last close to 2 hours during the first playthrough and a new mode will be unlocked after the completion of the DLC, so players can have a second go at it.

Final Fantasy XV is an open world RPG game released for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
