Moment of truth. Who DIDN’T despise the 13th chapter in Final Fantasy XV?! It was one word. UGHTASTIC!!! Thankfully, Square Enix promised they would make things right. Here’s what they plan to do!!
In an interview with Game Informer, Haruyoshi Sawatari explained the changes being made and they sound great!
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 [Ravus], 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.
Hey. I’ll take it!! AS ANY TYPE OF IMPROVEMENTS OVER WHAT WE GOT HAS TO BE A POSITIVE!!!
These changes will arrive on March 28, the same day as Episode Gladiolus. Sawatari also let it be known that it’ll take about 2 hours to finish Gladio’s solo-story. Not shabby for $4.99 or free if you have the season pass.
