Those of you who purchased Final Fantasy Type-0 HD on the Xbox One and PS4 were also fortunate enough to get access to a demo for the much hyped Final Fantasy XV, titled Episode Duscae. Despite only being a demo, it managed to have several hours worth of gameplay; most demos tend to last maybe just 45 minutes and that’s being generous. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind, and now there’s more of it on the way.
According to a report by Siliconera, a version 2.00 update for the demo will be released in May and will come with some enhancements for the Active Cross Battle (the battle system for the game), adjustments to the camera targeting system, new combat actions, balance tweaks and bug fixes.
There’s even a promise for steadier framerates and even more quest content. The fact that Square Enix is giving this much support for a demo is kind of staggering; can anyone think of another demo that has received updates? This one is being treated like its own mini-version of the real thing, and that’s not a bad thing, as it’s not only making the wait for the main game’s release easier to deal with but it’s also showing how much effort the developers are putting into Final Fantasy XV. They want people excited for it and are giving players a reason to get excited by giving them a very large taste of what’s to come instead of just telling them.
Plus, Square Enix have confirmed that there will be a big announcement regarding the game at Gamescom, which will be this August. Unfortunately, the demo is still unavailable to download on it’s own. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, you need to get a copy of Type-0 HD.
