Square Enix has released a video with further details regarding the March update for FFXV.
In an interview earlier this month, Haruyoshi Sawatari (producer of FFXV) released some more information about the upcoming patch. This goes hand-in-hand pretty well with the new trailer!
“So before, obviously, it was just Noctis by himself, kind of alone without the powers of his weapon summoning abilities. But what we’ve done for Chapter 13, is we’ve added a separate route for Gladio and Ignis after they get split off from Noctis, so you actually get to play as Gladio, and see what happened from their side of things until they reunited with Noctis.” -Sawatari
“The thing that stands out the most about Episode Gladiolus is the battle system. That kind of balance between offense and defense, where by defending you raise your attack power, and by attacking you’re able to form the stronger glaive arts. But, it’s a simple offense-defense system, but that’s where the player skill comes into play, in terms of knowing when to guard, when to have your attack power multiplier at maximum.” -Sawatari
So overall, from the trailer we have a few things to look forward to:
- Chapter 13, Verse 2 – Zegnautus Keep
- Ring of Power has more abilities!
- Chocobos climbing more and seeing new sights! Jump puzzles?
- Episode: Gladiolus!
- … and more!
We look forward to hearing more about what the update details will entail from Square Enix as events unfold!
