'Final Fantasy XV' Release Date Confirmed For November For PS4 And Xbox One; More DLC Outside 'FFXV' Season Pass In The Works?By Vinay Patel, UniversityHerald Reporter
Square Enix spilled the beans about the frame-rates and the game resolution for "Final Fantasy XV" for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles during a live Active Time Report.
Game director Hajime Tabata stated that the PlayStation 4 version of the much-awaited role-playing game is slated to run between 900p and 1080p, while almost holding the 30 FPS (frames per second). The Xbox One version, on the other hand, will run at 765p and 900p while being close to holding the 30 FPS.
The work on optimization in "Final Fantasy XV" is still ongoing, as Tabata told Famitsu that the team behind the highly-anticipated title will not cease working on it until its scheduled November launch. In addition the team will reportedly continue working on stabilizing the frame rate. But that's not all; graphics are also undergoing some radical overhauls as the studio has been working on improving the way the trees and shrubs look at intermediate distances, which are guaranteed to be better in the final game.
Aside from shedding some light on the situation, Tabata also divulged that "Final Fantasy XV" will have two parts as a partial open-world gameplay, while the other half will be linear.
While the first half continues as an open-world, the story in the second half leads to a linear path just like any "Final Fantasy" game, Tabata explained. He also revealed that it will take at least 40-50 hours to complete the game, Gamerant noted.
Tabata guaranteed that this is being done to ensure versatility and give avid gamers an opportunity to experience a more traditional sense of linear gameplay.
In other news, Tabata divulged that there will likely be more DLC for "Final Fantasy XV" outside of the season pass, provided Square Enix allows them to do so in the future.
"Final Fantasy XV" is likely to feature six DLC in the game's season pass and Tabata hinted that more are slated to come to the sequel soon such as brand new downloadable costumes and their strategy to increase the "cooking repertoire", VG 24/7 reported.
That being said, the studio is currently focusing on enhancing "Final Fantasy XV" and as soon as they've finished that they will commence work on the new DLC and the VR gameplay featuring Prompto.
"Final Fantasy XV" is slated to hit the store shelves on November 29 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.
