‘Final Fantasy XV’ Will Have Online Co-Op; DLC Plans Revealed
The Good: Final Fantasy XV is going to feature some sort of online co-op. The Bad: Apparently some of the fucking DLC packs are going to be selling you playable characters. C’mon, man.
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 29th release. The mode is a part of FFXV’s season pass, announced in August, which will cost $25 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.
