Getting gold status in the video game industry means that the game is completed and a Gold Master Copy can be sent to the presses for disc pressing, packaging, and distribution. A huge milestone for video game developers.
FFXV has been in development for nearly a whole decade. Throughout its development, the RPG has changed directions, titles, and release dates. Announced back in 2006 as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, the game has become one of the most highly anticipated games of 2016 for Final Fantasy fans and RPG fans. The developers at Square Enix have gone above and beyond to build the story around FFXV with an animated movie titled Kingsglaive, a YouTube webseries titled Brotherhood, and a short film, released earlier this week titled Omen.
The news of the gold status came from their presentation at Paris Games Week, in which they also announced Comrades, a multiplayer downloadable content feature for the upcoming game.
Final Fantasy XV’s official synopsis from Square Enix:
Enroute to wed his fiancée Luna on a road trip with his best friends, Prince Noctis is advised by news reports that his homeland has been invaded and taken over under the false pretense of a peace treaty – and that he, his loved one and his father King Regis, have been slain at the hands of the enemy.
To gather the strength needed to uncover the truth and reclaim his homeland, Noctis and his loyal companions must overcome a series of challenges in a spectacular open world – that is filled with larger-than-life creatures, amazing wonders, diverse cultures and treacherous foes.
FFXV will be released November 29 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. You can pre-order the Deluxe Edition from Amazon below:
