LOS ANGELES (Sept. 20, 2017) – For the first time, FINAL FANTASY® XV players will be able to create their own avatar and join up with three other friends to take on epic quests and battles in the game’s first and only online multiplayer expansion titled “Comrades.” Starting October 31, players will set foot as a survivor from Kingsglaive to find out more about the disappearance of Noctis after the events in Chapter 13 from the main game.
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.
SQUARE ENIX® also released a trailer featuring a brand-new track, “Choosing Hope” composed by Uematsu and sung by popular Japanese singer Emiko Suzuki. The new trailer is available on YouTube:
