Final Fantasy XV is the game which is expected to be out soon and it is an open wolrd action based on the role playing. It is being developed by Square Enix and it is for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It is of fifteenth installment of the Final Fantasy series and it shares one thematic connection to Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy. This is linked to major departure from the old games and it provides darker atmosphere which focuses more on the realistic environment and on the human characters compared to the previous games.
XV is taking place at the Eos and this is the world that looks the same as Earth. All the countries of this world like the Lucis’s Kingdom are all under the dominion of an empire of Nifiheim. The heir to the Lucian Throne is called Noctis Lucis Caelum and he is the heir to the empire and goes at the quest to take back the homeland and he has the magical crystal and it was seized at the eve of the peace negotiations by Niflheim. The negotiation was taking place between two nations. The game has an open world environment with the action based battle system that it is the same to the Kingdom of Hearts series and the Type-0 which incorporates the ability of switching weapons with more elements like vehicle travel or camping.
Development of Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy 15 had been in the development for decade now, it was taking place at the Square Enix and it has gone through different changes from the day it was revealed the Final Fantasy versus the XIII back to 2006. After many years of waiting by now, the game will be launched in just couple of month. This may be ambitious revival of fans that had waited for, for too long.
The game is described to be a JRPG and it is fun for the newbies with the existing fans. This is the pitch that lacks the information about the gameplay that was left by different Final Fantasy fans. Some little FFXV can break away from the stat of the genre and the hardcore traditions.
Having played in the first three chapters, you will be able to confirm that the game is not the same as the old games in the same series. However, the core features which made the game to be great had been upheld and they continue to be great. At the basic level, Final Fantasy XV is like a sandbox and it is open world RPG which task you to jump to the location to another location while picking up the quests.
The story has been overblown mostly and it focuses on the protagonist called Noctis Lucis Caelum and who is a prince to Lucis and he travels around the war-torn called Planet of Eos. Through this adventure, he is being accompanied by the group of the friends who are sounding as they are belonging to the Chelsea Flower show. They are Prompto Argentum, Ignis Scientia and Galdiolus Amicitia. They are the ones that are the core party in the exploration and combat.
The character in the game fall into the common archetype and Ignis takes up a role for the older brother and he gives Noctis the advice or he chastises another member about being immature person. Promptu plays the big joker and he is a regular butt of different jokes, Gladiolus is a strong silent type even if he is in the 80s mullet kind of the ruins with the badass vibe.
Noctis and the merry men can look like the wannabe and it is visual Kei band with the villains that take up the ridiculous to an entire new level. They include everything starting from the weird bikini Clad, bug woman and the armored neo roman fighters with the blade runner style robot and the soldiers.
The plot in the game is in a schizophrenic tone and most often, it is going to the operatic epic to cowboy bebop comedic and then it can come back once again without the possibility of pausing to get breath. The dark intro shows the epic fight which takes place into the future and it can jump faster back in the time to show that Noctis enjoys the slapstick moment using the buddies at the road trip.
The constant plot is a strong focus about the friendship and it is shared among the crew of Noctis. With the entire serious and comedic scene, the appealing aspect of the narratives in the game is the strong feelings of Prompto, Ignis, gladiolus and Noctis for one another. Sometime the group may break in the impromptu conversation with the friendly mocking of one to another or it can be about regaling one another with some funny stories from the past. In some serious moment, Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis may take up a protective role to work or to console Noctis through the hardship.
Some of the particular moment that take place is during the camp setup where Gladiolus chooses to train Noctis and during such training, Gladiolus had to lecturer Noctis on how he needs to train even harder if he has to be a noble ruler that he always wanted to be. The dialogue had been delivered into a strong and a fraternal tone.
At the beginning, most quests that you will have to do are to travel to some area where you may have to kill some bunch of the monsters or you may drop off a certain item. The early conversation and the driving conversation mechanics seemed to be too dull. The car has manual and auto driving options which are available but none of them will make it easy for you to take the car out of the road. An auto mode tells Ignis to drive to a certain location but it can still make you to sit within the entire journey while playing. The manual mode lets the user to control the acceleration of the car for the entire journey in the real time. The manual mode lets the player to control the acceleration of the car and it picks when someone wants to turn in the new road through pushing left or right. However, this is the on-rails experience at the end of everything.
The options of conversation can be limiting. At one point, the game offers the choice to replay to the questions of the NPC or request. Most can be limited to just saying yes or saying no even if at certain occasion, it may throw up the choice which may look like it can have some profound impact at the narrative of the game.
At a certain occasion, you may be asked to know how to deal with the bogus reporter who attempts to blackmail Noctis. However, each choice you make, it may always end the same where you have to accept to the quest given. The difference that you may notice is that the dialogue option can impress the companion of Noctis and it can yield the AP or the experience points.
The combat in the game is interesting even if the game has a tutorial system which is luckluster. This game will not offer the real tuition and the nuances during first game. Finally, the Final Fantasy is the real time combat system and it is on the basic level while it requires to get closer to the monsters and to press and to hold at either attack or to defend the button. Starting from that place, Noctis will be railing to the monsters and he will have to defend himself away of the strikes. Things may be more interesting in few hours when the game has introduced the companion abilities and the special attacks of Noctis.
Prompto, Ignis and Gladiolus may have one-active and also usable ability that is equipped at one time. The skills may be activated mid-combat after the party had inflicted enough regular damage at the enemies by the use of the special command button or LT on the Xbox one. The ability is of the basic super charged attacks which inflict enough damage but the user is able to unlock the interesting moves through leveling up the party.
The skills of the Prompto, Ignis and Gladiolus will be unlocked when the user spend the AP at the Astralsphere Ascension’s menu. After the resting at one of the camping of the hotels and the games, every character will have the own skill tree and the AP points will be stored at just one spot. In the theory, it means that you may be able to max out one character and you may ignore others but it is better to max them out in evenly way and to tailor everyone to a certain role.
You should tailor every character to use the ability which is important when it comes to face the bosses. You can rely on the attacks of Noctis alone and it will always end in the failure. The Blink Strike will add the element of the strategy while it will be eating the Magic Points of Noctis and it will let him to teleport at a short distance and to know the Blitz unsuspecting enemy position and to propel Noctis in the elevated places.
