As the launch date for the new Final Fantasy XV game edges ever closer to November 29h, a new 101 trailer has been released providing a quick overview of what you can expect from the single player game and its gameplay.
Developed by Division 2 and published by Square Enix Final Fantasy XV takes the form of an open world action role-playing video game which will be available for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will be the 15th main instalment in the Final Fantasy series.
Final Fantasy XV takes place on the fictional world of Eos. All the world’s countries—bar the kingdom of Lucis—are under the dominion of the empire of Niflheim. Noctis Lucis Caelum, heir to the Lucian throne, goes on a quest to retake his homeland and its magical crystal after it is seized by Niflheim on the eve of peace negotiations between the two nations. The game features an open-world environment and action-based battle system similar to the Kingdom Hearts series and Type-0, incorporating the ability to switch weapons and other elements such as vehicle travel and camping.
The characters have the ability to traverse environments in a free-running style, which also extends to battle with larger enemies. A day-night cycle and dynamic weather system is in effect across the world, with transient effects such as rain affecting things such as the characters’ clothing; the environment will also have an impact on magic. Markers can be placed around the environment to help with navigation. The world is a large connected landmass that can be explored on foot, or by using the party’s car “Regalia” or chocobos, recurring galliform birds in the Final Fantasy series.
