Final Fantasy 15 has had no shortage of DLC since its launch at the end of last year, and there’s still more on the way. The next one set to release is definitely a major one, as it will be the long-awaited multiplayer DLC called Comrades. Thanks to this week’s Tokyo Game Show, we now know that Comrades will launch on October 31.
Comrades is certainly going to be an interesting addition to Final Fantasy 15, as it will be adding co-op multiplayer to the game for the first time. Players will be creating their own character, which will then become a part of the Kingsglaive. Despite being multiplayer DLC, it actually does have a story and takes place following the game’s infamous chapter 13. Each soldier will unlock unique abilities that are based on various Lucian Kings, which should make this a nice change of pace compared to what has come before.
The following is an overview of the DLC:
“Set in a world engulfed by darkness, the expansion casts players as a member of the Kingsglaive, with powers and unique abilities invoked from various Lucian kings, who join forces to bring the Light back to the kingdom of Lucis. Other members of Noctis’s crew including Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis will be made playable in future game updates. As members of Kingsglaive, players equip royal sigils that grant special powers from the Lucian bloodline. Players can then strategize and create a balanced team to take on a variety of quests. In addition to multiplayer quests, single player quests are also available for players to enhance their characters.”
The Comrades DLC will be available as a standalone purchase for Final Fantasy 15, but it can also be acquired as a part of the game’s $25 season pass. A new trailer was also released that shows this DLC in action, which you can check out at the bottom of this post.
Final Fantasy 15 is currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but it’s set to be coming to more platforms in the near future. A mobile version of the game called the Pocket Edition is set to launch later this year, and the long-awaited PC version is slated for an early 2018 launch.
