    How can anyone see how much has been added up til now and NOT say the game was unfinished and unpolished at launch? That said, the latest news about the switchable characters is VERY nice, I was planning to replay the slightly more finished version of the game after Episode Ignis but if Ardyn and possible Luna will get an episode, I’ll wait…having to pay for what imo should be in the game already is absolute shite though, but if it makes the game better it makes the game better.

    It does give it some replay value but since I’ve platinumed it, I haven’t touched it. I’ll wait maybe another year.

    The hunt capacity increase addresses a huge issue that I had with the game. I also liked the Shiva introduction change and additional Ravus’ scenes, I just didn’t like the execution. They definitely feel tacked on rather it being nicely integrated. I think that any other new story additions will probably be like that. Again, Tababta’s strong point is gameplay not story. Finally, now that all the bros are playable it definitely makes me want to do another New Game Plus. I might wait a full year though until the updates are finished, it might feel like an entirely different game by then.

    I feel about the same, which is to say it was an okay FF but not really my favorite and it seemed unfinished or at least unpolished. To be fair though I haven’t re-played it since my first play through. But most of the added content I don’t care about. Much of it should have already been in the game. I’m waiting for the remaining story content to be released and then I will replay it and all the story related DLC. Maybe then I’ll feel better but I don’t think I’m going to change my opinion much.

    I sort of just want them to be done with FFXV so that we can move on to FFXVI. I don’t want to wait another decade to get the next game.

    I feel the same about it, really enjoyed both the gameplay and story, it looks great and the world is awesome. But it is clear that the deadline made this a lesser game which is frustrating. It’s a good game I think it’s a 80-85/100 but it easily could have been a 90-95 which can be very disheartening.

    Well now with The Royal Edition being released on March 6th, as an incentive for players that held off buying FFXV, they are including a chunk of new content. This does not include the expanded story updates and DLC that Tabata mentioned for the Season 2 DLC.

    Final Fantasy XV: Royal Pack for $19.99
    -New Boss fights -Cerberus, Omega, Rulers of Yore, Possibly a boss found in the Ocean.
    -New Maps- Insomina Expanded, New Dungeon (Rulers of Yore)
    -Vehicles- Royal Vessel (can now explore the ocean between Altissia and Lucis)
    -Gameplay- First Person Mode, Armiger Unleashed Mechanic
    -Weapons & Accessories- There has been a report that more will be added.
    -Story- New Cutscenes involving Chapter 14. New Cutscene for Regalia Type-D, New Story/ Mission involving the sea monster you sight on the Royal Vessel. Most likely a new scenes for the Rulers of Yore

    Well now, christ, it definitely feels like a entirely new game with this addition. This, again, doesn’t cover the New DLC Tabata wants to add throughout 2018.

    I know it’s gotten to the point that I feel like playing through the whole thing again. The game is a different beast from what it was when it came out.
