Final Fantasy XV Patch Notes for the Crown Update Day One

final fantasy xv crown update

The new Crown Update for Final Fantasy XV adds 8 GB of improvements to the game a day away from the launch. The game will not be playable until you download and install the Crown Update to your console. Luckily, the game does not take up as much hard drive space as previously thought, but it does use at least 50 GB of space plus 8 GB for the Crown Update. These patch notes were released on a Square Enix site, but in Japanese, so there may be slight variances thanks to the translation to English.

  • New actions that were inspired by the “Omen” trailer that was produced by Digic Pictures and include Shift (Warp) Dropkick (when your daggers are equipped), and Backward Shift (Warp) Magic (elemental magic activation within a short distance)
  • Some Wait Mode exclusive abilities that were added to Ability Call in order to improve the Wait Mode experience including Libra Speed Increase which helps you obtain information more quickly, the Wait Gauge will recover after defeating an enemy, when Shift Breaking to an enemy that isn’t targeting you it’s easier to destroy the targeted part, and lastly when Shift Breaking to an enemy with less than half HP, the damage multiplier will increase.
