The November Final Fantasy XV special presentation continued with a look into a different side of Square Enix's most recent entry in the series. The publisher has some plans for the game's multiplayer component, Comrades, announcing plans to take that mode and release a standalone version.
The full package will be titled Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades. Comrades first released almost one year ago as part of the Final Fantasy XV Season Pass. There doesn't look to be too much of a difference in this new version, other than players no longer needing to trudge through the main game to jump into the action. However, what this means is that the Comrades that's currently in the main game is about to be discontinued. A December 13 shut down date was given for Japan, with a North American date expected around the same time. However, those who own the old version of Comrades can pick up the new version for no extra charge.
For those that do pick up Comrades separately, look for ten new bosses to make their way into the game. along with some new costumes. Look for the standalone version of Comrades to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for $9.99 on December 12 as a digital release. The PC will not receive a standalone Comrades, but Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition will receive the latest Comrades update for free on that same date.
