'Final Fantasy XV' Chapter 13 Update Goes Live One Day Ahead Of Schedule
Ever since Square Enix announced that an update to "Final Fantasy XV" is in the works to possibly fix the RPG's notorious Chapter 13, fans have patiently waited and even held off playing the game to await its arrival. The developer previously confirmed that they plan to release the content on March 28, 2017, but surprised fans with a one-day early release instead.
Gamers can now download the "Final Fantasy XV" update that clocks in at 5.6GB and comes in two parts. Version 1.06 and Version 1.07 reportedly contain the promised content as well as some fixes. According to Game Rant, Version 1.06 holds most of the new story content and Chapter 13 updates, while Version 1.07 is reported to be mostly bug fixes and seems like a minor update in itself.
The new story tweak is apparently labeled Chapter 13 Verse 2 and supposedly set parallel to the original Chapter 13 in "Final Fantasy XV". Once installed, the update allows gamers to travel a different route as Gladio prior to his regroup with Noctis. It is expected to clarify some of the reported narrative issues in the original game. Gamers will also experience it like a semi-teaser for the Episode Gladiolus expansion pack where players play as Gladio himself.
Moreover, the "Final Fantasy XV" Chapter 13 updates bring along some fixes and enhancements to its gameplay. Players should be able to move around some of the previously inaccessible areas on the map. Arcana spells like Death, Holy and Alterna will also receive some buffs, according to reports.
Other relevant content includes the winning photos "from Final Fantasy XV" players who participated in the "Moogle Chocobo Carnival" event last January. These are viewable at Takka's Pit Stop in Hammerhead. Kotaku also reports that players can access the new Chapter 13 from the main menu after the game has been cleared.
