Final Fantasy 15 Multiplayer Test Arriving Next Week – Here’s What You Need to Know
Square Enix has revealed that the previously announced Final Fantasy 15 multiplayer mode, “Comrades,” will be available to try out as part of a limited test run beginning next week. The closed online beta, which runs from August 3rd to August 8th, will feature a bare-bones version of the multiplayer expansion. Any Final Fantasy 15 owner that also owns the game’s season pass will have access to the test version of the expansion, provided they also have online access through their console.
The “Comrades” expansion represents a significant departure from the gameplay found within the base Final Fantasy 15 game. In the test version, players can create and customize their own Final Fantasy hero with an expanded number of customizable options arriving in the full release of the Final Fantasy 15 multiplayer expansion. While the beta will restrict players to player-made avatars, later updates will allow the use of Noctis, Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis. There is also speculation that other characters from the game, such as Aranea Highwind, will be made available at a later date.
Players can also embark on one of three different quests and will be able to join up to three other players online, or play with up to 3 AI companions. There are also single player quests. In the test run, players can choose from katana, club, dagger, and shuriken weapons with an expanded arsenal arriving with the full version. Players can also choose one of four “Royal Sigils,” each of which will significantly alter multiplayer combat.
During the test of the Final Fantasy 15 multiplayer mode, players will embark on quests from a very simple ‘base camp’ location. A city-like environment will be available in the full version of the expansion with access to more quests, activities, and more cooking recipes. In regards to player interaction, it will support both preset chat messaging and voice chat. In the full release, players can make Camps for meetups with friends, customize the preset chat messages, receive quest report cards, and take photographs.
