Final Fantasy XV Reveals DLC Plan, Including Online Co-Op

Final Fantasy XV will have an online multiplayer mode, the game's team announced today at Paris Games Week.

Co-op multiplayer DLC will be available for the game after its November 29 release. The mode is a part of FFXV's season pass, announced in August, which will cost $38 and offer six DLC packs total. The three other DLC packs teased today will make party members Gladio, Ignis and Prompto playable. The online co-op mode, released after each characters' episode, will allow up to four players to battle as Gladio, Ignis, Prompto or Noctis.

It's a radical move for a franchise whose bread-and-butter is single-player, but not a shocking one considering the success of the MMORPG FFXIV.

Along with the announcement, FFXV's team dropped a spectacular cinematic CG trailer called "Omen". The trailer depicts an "'omen' for Noctis' father, King Regis, of a catastrophic future that must be avoided," the trailer's description reads.

Details about the co-op mode's specific gameplay are sparse.


    Great to see Squenix doing what the fans want T_T

      Even though its gated by a season pass?

        Yes, lets get upset about a new game mode that we should get for free in a single player based game.

    That trailer was amazing! Reminded me of the Assassin's Creed Revelations trailer in terms of hyping us up with just enough information to whet our appetites, whilst still leaving so much mystery to the game itself.

    It has been really interesting watching the lead up to the game's release. I don't know quite what Squeenix's motivation is but they are really betting huge on Final Fantasy XV becoming the new FFVII. They've released an anime, a movie, several self-contained demos, the mobile pinball game and Justice Monsters V. They also have planned the side-scrolling beat'em up, the VR game, a multiplayer mode DLC, several character-centric episodes and a re-release of an old game rebranded as a game Noctis and co. play. All planned and developed before the game has even been released.

    It almost feels like Squeenix is afraid the game is going to flop and so they're trying to sell the Final Fantasy XV universe and cash in on the hype while they can. The 29th of November is going to be an interesting day.
