Square Enix has detailed what we can expect from Final Fantasy XV's 'Crown Update', which includes improvements to its camera, new features, and support for both Facebook and Twitter.


Square Enix teased “important” news would be revealed today for Final Fantasy XV, and it appears it’s coming in the form of a free update to the game that will provide a variety of updates, minor bug fixes, new features, and more.

The Crown Update will be available to download automatically at launch and offers a number of enhancements to Final Fantasy XV. These include improvements to its camera, the addition of scenes from KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV and the Omen trailer to help the game’s story easier to follow, and the addition of an ability tree for the Wait Mode function, which will improve the strategic element of the feature.

Additional enhancements include the opportunity to obtain the Beast Whistle, which can call monsters to battle, more recipes and fish, and photos taken by Prompto to be uploaded on Facebook and Twitter.

Game Director Hajime Tabata also had a statement to share regarding copies of Final Fantasy XV being released ahead of its November 29th release date:

The November 29th release date is approaching and I sincerely hope everyone enjoys this game with a fresh state of mind. Unfortunately, there has been an unauthorized distribution of the boxed edition of FINAL FANTASY XV in select regions and we have noticed that gameplay footage from people playing these copies has appeared online. Though this type of situation is brought on by various region specific circumstances and may not be something that is completely avoidable, we are very regretful of this situation.

One of the major goals of FINAL FANTASY XV is for everyone to enjoy the story and to discover the surprises together through the simultaneous worldwide release. Due to these recent events, videos with unexpected spoilers could potentially be posted online, so we would like to warn everyone who has been waiting in anticipation for this game.

We will also do everything in our capacity to prevent unauthorized footage from appearing online. We would also like to ask anybody that has obtained an early copy of the game to be respectful to those that are looking forward to the official release and to not spoil the surprises for everyone.

A large and dedicated team have worked extremely hard to make this game and to create a FINAL FANTASY that everyone can enjoy. It would be a huge regret for us if the excitement of the launch was to be spoiled for so many when we are so close to release.

Your understanding and cooperation would be much appreciated so we can celebrate the best possible release together.
