Now that it's gone gold, the upcoming video game "Final Fantasy XV" is widely anticipated globally, and Square Enix does little to dampen that enthusiasm. The company recently announced that the final DLC for the game will be an online, four-player multiplayer mode called "Comrades." This marks the first online multiplayer for a numbered non-MMO Final Fantasy installment.

Release date, prices

According to a report from IGN, the new "Final Fantasy XV" online multiplayer DLC mode, "Comrades," will only be available using the season pass, which costs around $25. Haruyoshi Sawatari, DLC director, explained that the online multiplayer expansion pack for Final Fantasy XV will allow players to command all four core characters at once: Noctis, Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto.

It's likely, however, that "Comrades" will be a completely different campaign from the main "Final Fantasy XV" game, as Sawatari explained in an interview with Gamespot. He said that there are gameplay experiences that aren't necessarily possible within "Final Fantasy XV."

It will be released after the three "Expansion" games, featuring the three nonplayable characters that accompany Noctis throughout the main campaign: Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto. This will allow players to control each individual character and experience their unique gaming styles. Through these "Final Fantasy XV" episodes, players will be able to explore previously uncharted areas and even obtain weapons that aren't available in the main game. The current season pass order implies that the first episode, "Gladiolus," will be available by the holidays.

'Final Fantasy XV' teaser

Meanwhile, "Final Fantasy XV" fans are going crazy over a newly released promotional teaser for the upcoming game. It features Prince Noctis as he follows a mysterious white dog through a series of shifting realities, all the while haunted by his fiancee Princess Luna. It appears as though Noctis, who'd gone mad, had killed her in a blind rage, while King Regis mysteriously asks to be forgiven by the Gods toward the end of the "Final Fantasy XV" trailer. How would this play into the series?

"Final Fantasy XV" will launch on Nov. 29 for PlayStation, XBox and PC. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more "Final Fantasy XV" news and updates!
