• FFXV Royal Edition announced for PS4 and Xbox One; SE further details Windows Edition


    If you held off on purchasing Final Fantasy XV in the event that a "complete" edition would eventually emerge, your patience will soon be rewarded. Square Enix have announced Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition, an update over the base game with over 20 add-ons and DLC. Interestingly, both the Royal Edition and Windows Edition will feature an expanded map of Insomnia with new enemies and sidequests, and even a first-person camera mode.

    What you can expect to see from these two new versions of the game:


    • Expanded Map: Insomnia City Ruins: All-new sidequests and enemies such as Cerberus and Omega will be available through the expanded map of the Crown City. Players will also take on the Rulers of Yore.
    • A fully controllable Royal Vessel Boat: Players will be free to explore the area between Cape Caem and Altissia, as well as fish aboard the vessel and discover new recipes and fish.
    • A new accessory that can activate the new action Armiger Unleashed: Players will be able to unleash powerful attacks while the Armiger is summoned. After collecting all of the royal arms, players will be able to find an accessory in an unidentified part of the world, granting them access to the Armiger Unleashed.
    • First Person Camera Mode: Players will be able to experience FFXV through Noctis’ perspective.
    • More than a dozen pieces of DLC: This includes weapons, Regalia car skins and item sets.
    • All season pass content: Including, Episode Gladiolus, Episode Prompto, Episode Ignis and the Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades.
    • Archive: Players can review the “Cosmogony” stories scattered throughout the world of Final Fantasy XV. Additional local myths and legends will also be placed in various new locations, allowing players to obtain more information about the world.
    • Quest to obtain and strengthen the Regalia Type-D
    • New Trophies
    • The Final Fantasy XV base game.





    Both the Royal Edition and the Windows Edition will release on the 6th of March. To prepare PC buyers, Square are preparing a benchmark tool to test the mettle of your hardware. This will be available from 1 February and further details can be found on their official website.
