For those who are itching to return to the world of Final Fantasy XV or wanting to visit for the very first time, you are in luck: Square Enix has officially announced the release of Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition. Not only does it collect the base game along with over 20 DLC add-ons, the new edition includes new additions not yet seen. Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition will also feature this new content.
Full features for the Royal Edition and Windows Edition include:
- First-person mode
- Added Insomnia City Ruins, which includes new quests and the chance to take on Cerberus, the Rulers of Yore, and Omega.
- A boat to sail between Cape Caem and Altissia.
- A new ability called “Armiger Unleashed,” a powerful attack that is available once all royal arms are found.
- Previous DLC, including Episode Gladiolus, Episode Prompto, Episode Ignis, and Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades.
- An archive that allows players to view “Cosmogony” stories whenever they want.
- More ways to strengthen the Regalia Type-D
- New Trophies/Achievements
Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and the Windows Edition release on March 6th for the suggested price of $49.99.
PC owners who pre-order starting on February 1st have a variety options for pre-order bonuses. Pre-ordering through the Windows Store grants the player the “FFXV Powerup Pack,” which gives players access to items that will greatly help them in battle. Steam, on the other hand, will bestow upon players the “FFXV Fashion Collection,” which is a costume collection for Noctis and the gang. Lastly, pre-ordering through Origin gives the player more options to decorate the Regalia with the “FFXV Decal Selection.”
What about the console owners who don’t want to purchase the game again in order to experience the new content? Fear not, Square Enix has you covered. On the same day of release, the “Final Fantasy XV Royal Pack” will be made available digitally for $19.99. This pack will grant players access to the same new content available in the Royal Edition and Windows Edition.
Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but it’s best to wait until March if you haven’t played it yet.
