‘Final Fantasy XV’ Update: Square Enix Drops version 1.03; Patch Fixes Bugs, Adds New Game+
Square Enix has just made the holiday season even more exciting and lovable for "Final Fantasy XV" fans as they are being given free bonuses in the latest live update of the game to its new 1.03 version in PS4 and Xbox One. "Final Fantasy XV version 1.03 update/patch comes in a 3.2GB for both consoles.
According to ThisGenGaming, the patch notes for the update includes bug fixes, new game plus added along with bonus content, which revealed Warrior's Fanfare, a scroll of music sheet containing a song of jubilation that provides additional AP for earning an A+ in Offense outside of training; Nixperience Band, a device that stops experience points from being tallied, preventing the party from leveling up for an added challenge; and Carnival Passport, which is an adorably adorned ticket that whisks the bearer away to a fun-filled carnival for a limited time.
Fans have gone ballistic over the live update and pointed out the surprisingly early Christmas treat from Square Enix, the best holiday gift for "Final Fantasy XV" gamers. They also enjoyed other bonus contents such as new photo feature where players can choose from a variety of themed photo frames that can be applied to Prompto's many photographs, Nova Crystallis reported.
The source, however, warned that by starting the NewGame+ it will overwrite the original save and things that will be carried over are items, costumes and settings, weapons, levels and Ascension skills. The upgraded Engine Blade (Ultima Blade), will go back to its original version and the Regalia returns to its stock state should the player transformed it to the airship model. The report also added that it does not offer any additional difficulty levels beyond Easy and Normal while the enemy has also remained unchanged.
Meanwhile, past reports claimed that the game gathered negative feedbacks specifically on its poor magic system and rotten combat camera, which is very vital in the game's combat system as it tracks players, enemies and the action entirely. While "Final Fantasy's" endgame is full of extra challenges and intense secret dungeons, the minimal checkpoints and save points or none of it gives players a potential to be sent to square one, all progress and experience reset, Trusted reviews added.
However, Polygon reported that even though the game shoved the hardest dungeons to its players, there are shortcuts and tricks that save players the 10-hour play game.
