A new update regarding the Final Fantasy 15 DLC (downloadable content), called Episode Prompto, has now come to light. According to reports, the aforementioned DLC will most definitely forego any VR (virtual reality) capabilities. Such confirmation comes directly from Square Enix itself.
Final Fantasy 15 DLC: No VR For Episode Prompto
Final Fantasy 15 Lead Designer, Wan Hazmer, confirms that VR capabilities for Episode Prompto will not really come to be. This is in spite of the initial demo for Episode Prompto, which boasted of having VR technology. As per Hazmer, the demo at the time was simply a showcase of VR technology and the extent of its capabilities.
“The Prompto Shooting game was actually a showcase back then,” shares Hazmer. “It was just to showcase the power of the VR — but we have Monster of the Deep! Can you imagine having a Prompto DLC and also having a Prompto VR. Right? We want to offer something very different for every single entry of Final Fantasy 15.”
Next Final Fantasy 15 DLC: Episode Ignis
The next notable Final Fantasy 15 DLC slated for a release is Episode Ignis. It follows the aforementioned character, Ignis, and is set for a launch this December. According to reports, Episode Ignis was slated to be the last character-based DLC to be released due to the impact it would bring to the story. As such, Episode Gladio and Episode Prompto were subsequently released ahead.
Final Fantasy 15 Update: Multiplayer Closed Beta
In other news, the game recently ran its closed beta for the Comrades DLC. It ran from August 3 to August 8 and was available to PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold subscribers. The Comrades expansion features a new cooperative multiplayer mode for fans to explore. Ultimately, it breaks away from the typical approach of Final Fantasy 15’s main gameplay.
Furthermore, the Comrades DLC allows players to create up to eight avatars in order to complete tasks and defeat enemies. In addition to this, future updates will also allow fans to take control of Noctis, Prompto, Galdiolus, and Ignis later down the road.
Other Final Fantasy 15 updates detail the availability of the Magitek Exosuits. The set of armor was long awaited, as it was originally slated to have a much earlier release. However, this was delayed due to the armor’s uncanny resemblance to the Power Rangers.
Now, the Magitek Exosuits sport an updated look that diverges even more from the Power Rangers identity. Notably, the Magitek Exosuits grant players 30 minutes of invincibility per day. Beyond this, players will still be able to wear the suits in-game even after the daily invincibility wears off.
