UPDATE 16/1/2018: Square Enix has officially announced that the Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition will release on March 6, for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This edition will contain the following content:
- An all-new dungeon – Insomnia City Ruins: Expanded Map
- New features such as first-person mode, new gear, and new bosses.
- Armiger Unleashed – after you collect all 13 royal arms, a more action-oriented mode of the Armiger is unlocked
- Royal Vessel – the boat from FFXV is now a controllable vehicle. The same body of water (between Cape Caem and Altissia) can now be freely explored.
- All season pass content – Episode Gladiolus, Episode Prompto, Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades, and Episode Ignis.
- Over a dozen pieces of DLC, including weapons, Regalia car skins, and item sets.
The Royal Edition bonus content will also be available for the Windows Edition on the same day, together with 4K (max 8K) resolution, HDR10, Dolby Atmos, and mod support.
If the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) is to be believed, a re-release of the well-received Final Fantasy XV could be on the way.
The JRPG, first released in December of 2016, has been well supported throughout the past year, with plenty of content drops via DLCs to keep fans returning to the world of Eos with Noctis and gang
This would include the Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis story episodes. as well as the multiplayer-focused Comrades DLC. With the new character swapping feature, and three more DLC episodes to come (at least), including one on the antagonist, Ardyn, this might turn out to be a hefty bundle, depending on its release window.And with Final Fantasy XV arriving on PC later this year, the Royal Edition will only see the light of day on just the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Square Enix has yet to make a proper announcement, but this will surely come sooner rather than later, so stay tuned!
