Final Fantasy 15's Next Free Update Revealed, Here's When It's Coming And What It Does

The new patch is coming next week.


Final Fantasy XV is getting another free update.

According to Nova Crystalis, the update will add "additional features" for PlayStation 4 Pro, one of which is a new mode that allows the game to have a "stable framerate and comfortable play." Final Fantasy XV was patched in February to support PS4 Pro, but the update was criticized for reportedly making the game perform worse under some circumstances.

Also coming in the update is the ability to magnify the subtitles and menu screen size. That's not all the update does, either. Here is more from the Nova Crystalis report (via NeoGAF):

"Additionally, subtitles and menu screen size can now be magnified. Timed quests will also start up again, along with a ranking system. Extravagant weapons can be obtained from them. Furthermore, a new sticker has been added for Regalia customization, along with new music for the music player."

This new Final Fantasy XV update launches on April 27, presumably for all PS4 and Xbox One.

Final Fantasy XV launched in November 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One in November, going on to ship more than 6 million copies. At the Game Developers Conference, Square Enix showed a Final Fantasy XV tech demo running on PC, but this doesn't mean the game is confirmed for the new platform.
