Over the weekend at PAX East, Square Enix presented a neat and tidy roadmap for its plans with Final Fantasy XV from now into 2019. Some of this was previously announced, namely that a new set of character episodes was in the works, but now we have titles, premises, and even additional updates not previously spoken to.
For starters, Square Enix is continuing to push and support Comrades, the multiplayer component within Final Fantasy XV. Two updates are planned so far, the first planned for this summer, which will also coincide with a standalone release for Comrades. The second update will hit in the following winter. Also, in the PC version of Final Fantasy XV, the character creation suite will move over to the single-player story, and a level editor will also be added.
In 2019, four new character episodes will be released. The chapters feature Ardyn, Aranea, Lunafreya, and Noctis, respectively. This will mark this installment's first playable heroines. From Ardyn to Noctis, these content episodes appear intended to both expand on the game’s mythology, but also add to the game’s divisive ending. No word on pricing or individual release dates yet, of course.
