Square Enix has announced that the Comrades multiplayer expansion for Final Fantasy XV will launch on October 31. A new trailer is also available, featuring a new vocal track titled “Choosing Hope” composed by Nobuo Uematsu and sung by Japanese singer Emiko Suzuki.
Players can strategize and create a balanced team to take on a variety of quests. In addition to multiplayer quests, single player quests are also available for players to enhance their characters.
This multiplayer mode will be available to players who have purchased the Season Pass for Final Fantasy XV, and the expansion can also be purchased standalone. It also requires a subscription to an Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus.
'Comrades' takes place after Chapter 13 in the game, where players act as survivors from the Kingsglaive working to find out more about the disappearance of Noctis. As members of Kingsglaive, players can equip various kinds of royal sigils that grant special powers from the Lucian bloodline. Other members of Noctis’s crew including Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis will be made playable in future game updates.
