I don't understand how everyone can support this POS. It's only final fantasy in name, not in gameplay by any stretch of the imagination.

With the MP expansion (which sounds an awful lot like DA:I or something) it seems XV has gone full WRPG. I don't mind if it's just for XV (it's a series known for shaking things up sometimes, after all) but if it's the future for every game I can't say I'm too hyped for that.

Game developers can't win these days. If they stay true to the same tried and true patterns, people bitch they're making the same game. If they innovate and do things radically different from previous installments, people bitch they're not making real sequels. Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

I judge every game, franchise or not, based on that individual game. I've played almost every Final Fantasy game ever made and been a fan of it since the 90s, and I personally enjoyed Final Fantasy XV. It's very different from the other titles. But different doesn't necessarily mean bad.

I appreciate it isn't to everyone's tastes. But if you give it a chance, there's a lot to like here. And I acknowledge there's a lot that could stand to be improved. I just find it fun. And I like the characters, story, music, etc.

Some of the game is ok dlc is nothing more then a money grab it adds nothing to the story at all, then you have the so called summons you can't use unless the stupid game lets by far the worst FF game from the point of the summons and there is the magic if you can call it that that feels like it was tacked on at the last second if this is the fututure of FF games then square enix can stick them up there ass

Support for games on any level is great, don't think I'll ever bought with mp though... Unless I can double box any achievements they add in.

I'm going against the general outrage and say I actually liked the game. Im not super excited about the mp aspect as I generally prefer solo games but they did announce there would be solo play as well. Points to them for allowing a mp update to be played single player.

They seriously need to let this cash-cow die. There is milking something but they have so far milked this poor cash-cow to nothing.

On top of that they still have yet to add more to the main stories major loopholes.......if we want an MMO we would go and play XIV lol

Give me Ignis's DLC along with the so called "new" extra story content in the next incoming updates (which I swear was "Deleted" content) and be done with this game.

I've always been a little curious about this game as a whole but don't know if I want to try it. This game mode DLC whatever you want to call it sound pretty cool though.

Am I missing something? What's the solid release date?
I wrote here once on accident and this is what I wrote to never see the original post again.

The bit in the video that says "Available October 31, 2017".

I hope there's no achievements. I did not buy Final Fantasy XV looking to play a multiplayer game. Hate it when developers suddenly change direction on a game.

the days of the true JRPG are closing it seems, not played FFXV yet, aslong as the narritive is as awesome as ever, I'll be happy, but they days of VII, VIII and IX were the highlight of Final Fantasy for me ((never played 12, heard it was amazing though))

You just need to look in the right place. There are a ton of JRPGs coming out all the time; just not too many on Xbox.

If they opened up the gameplay (because the beta was subpar) then this may be a really good addition for all season pass holders.

There are a ton of haters for this game that I thought to be a great game and worth the full price of admission.

@Darth Chimp, pick up a PlayStation and you can play a ton of great JRPGs.
Yeah Buddy!!!
