Final Fantasy XV goes sci-fi with super-powered exosuits
Ifrit ain't got nothing on these high-tech bad boys.
It may have taken a full 10 years for Final Fantasy XV to become a reality, but Square Enix sure is doing all it can to make fans feel like the wait was worth it. The developer has been rolling out free updates for the game at a steady pace, and we're not talking mere bug fixes or new weapons. June's update saw the FF XV boys' car, the Regalia, upgraded with off-road capability that let players drive it wherever they wish, a massive change from the road-only autopilot mode the game was originally limited to.
Today, Square Enix has shaken up its open-world RPG yet again with the introduction of Magitek Exosuits: sleek, Crysis-looking outfits that grant Noctis and his pals 30 minutes of invincibility each in-game day. More importantly, though, they look completely bad-arse, especially when the gang is booking it across Eos on their Chocobos.
Besides the exosuits, today's update also adds a brand new quest along with a team-up mechanic called Cross Chain that increases the number of linked attacks players can perform in battle. You'll need to have unlocked the Sword of the Wise and Axe of the Conqueror Royal Arms to gain access to Cross Chain attacks, however.
Finally, the Moogle Chocobo Carnival is making its return. From now until late September, the city of Altissia will play host to a variety of mini-games all players can participate in, including Chocobo water races.
