Final Fantasy 15 Multiplayer Won't Require Full Game To Play Starting This Year

Play Final Fantasy with friends, without owning FFXV.


Final Fantasy XV got DLC last year consisting of a multiplayer mode, called Comrades, that allows players to team up and take on enemies together. At the moment, Comrades is only available as an expansion to FFXV. But later this year, Comrades will get a standalone release alongside an update that adds raid bosses and battle challenges.

Square Enix announced the news today at its PAX East panel, explaining that players will soon no longer need to purchase the full game to play its multiplayer mode. Comrades allows people to team up to complete quests, defeat enemies, and take on monster-hunting contracts, and this summer it'll get a bunch of new content with the addition of raid bosses and other challenges.

Now Playing: Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer Expansion Comrades Live

There's no word yet on a price for the standalone Comrades; it currently costs $20 as DLC for FFXV. Square also hasn't announced when it'll be released.

This is one part of what appears to be a big new wave of post-release support for the game. In addition to the Comrades standalone release, Square has also revealed that a Shadow of the Tomb Raider/FFXV crossover is in the works, and four more episodes will be added in 2019.
