EGX is one of the biggest gaming events held annually in the UK, and that is where Square Enix chose to showcase a big demo for their upcoming game, Final Fantasy XV. The demo essentially traces the first forty minutes of the action RPG running on the Xbox One.
The footage that has been captured and uploaded to YouTube by a good Samaritan shows off a good chunk of character interaction as well as gameplay, with the game’s central and sole playable character Noctis in the middle of all the mayhem as he battles the bad guys alongside his friends.
By the looks of it, the developers are doing their best to make up for the seemingly never-ending circle of delay that the game has been caught up in since the beginning of its development. Only recently, at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix showcased a trailer spanning four minutes which concentrated on the upcoming title’s story arc, giving fans a good look at some of the protagonists as well as the antagonists, including Noctis, his trusted friends, Ardyn Izunia, and Lunafreya.
Final Fantasy XV is one title that has been coming for a long time. Development began in 2006 and since then the game has been through many changes in terms of concept as well as the platform it was originally supposed to be designed for.
The game was finally announced to be released in 2016, but the initial planned release date in September suffered a setback yet again. As of now, the game is supposed to be released worldwide in late November.
But Square Enix has tried to keep the hype alive by drawing attention to the game in a number of ways. The director of Final Fantasy XV announced that the game will come with an additional patch which he wanted to ensure was made available to every player who bought the game, instead of launching it separately as a downloadable content. More recently in August, Square Enix released a new pinball-style RPG spinoff based on the upcoming title, named Justice Monsters Five.
Final Fantasy XV is set for release on November 29. It will be playable on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
