Final Fantasy 15 Comrades DLC release date set

Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy 15 Comrades multiplayer expansion will launch on November 15 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The DLC was originally scheduled for release on October 31 before being delayed two weeks. Square a little vague on the reasons, stating only it was "due to final adjustments and to create the best possible experience."

Comrades is an expansion to the base version of Final Fantasy 15, and allows you to create your own character and be joined by three additional players. You’ll then venture out into the world as a group working together tackling various quests.

The DLC will be available separately or as part of the Final Fantasy 15 Season Pass, which will set you back $24.99.

Square Enix hosted a beta for the Comrades expansion in late summer, although the teaser was initially plagued by various server issues. 

Final Fantasy 15 was released for the PS4 and Xbox One in November 2016. The game is due for release on PC early next year, and there’s also chatter on a possible Nintendo Switch version down the line.

Final Fantasy 15 DLC continues into 2018

Square Enix recently confirmed that development for the project will continue into 2018, with new content in the pipeline as a result. 

Final Fantasy 15 was originally conceived as a PS3-exclusive release known as Final Fantasy Versus 13. The project reached about 25 percent complete before it was revamped into the game we have today, though elements of Versus remained in the final product. 

Upon its release, Final Fantasy 15 shipped five million copies in its first day on sale, becoming the second-fastest selling title in the venerable JRPG franchise to date. 

Despite the game’s success, Square Enix has said that Final Fantasy 15-2 is not likely to happen.
