Final Fantasy 15 Comrades Multiplayer Release Date Announced
Following a delay, the Comrades expansion launches in November.
Final Fantasy XV's online multiplayer expansion, Comrades, is nearly here. Following a delay that resulted in it missing its October launch, Square Enix has provided a new release date for the multiplayer DLC, and it's out in just over a week on PS4 and Xbox One. Comrades launches on November 15, Square Enix has announced.
That's about two weeks than previously planned, as Square Enix originally had scheduled it to come out on October 31. However, Comrades was delayed for some exceedingly vague reasons--the developer said it was "due to final adjustments and to create the best possible experience." It's offered no further insight into what issues it may have needed to iron out.
The DLC requires the base game and allows you to create a character and join up with three other players online to complete quests. A pair of beta tests took place back in August; the first one was plagued by server issues, and the second was meant to fix matchmaking issues that were present in the first.
Comrades is premium DLC that is sold on its own or as part of the $25 season pass. It's not the last DLC for the game, as the single-player Episode Ignis releases in December. A VR spin-off, Monster of the Deep, is coming to PSVR on November 21.
