Earlier this year we talked about the upcoming multiplayer update to Final Fantasy XV, titled Comrades. Well, according to an announcement from the Japanese division of Square Enix, the update has been delayed from its original Halloween release. As of now, the exact release date is not known.
Square Enix detailed that the delay has been issued due to “final adjustments” and to “Create the best possible experience.”
We’re sorry for any inconveniences this has caused but as soon as we can confirm the new #FFXVComrades release date, we’ll let you know.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Comrades expansion for Final Fantasy XV, here is the official description:
“As members of Kingsglaive, players equip royal sigils that grant special powers from the Lucian bloodline. Players can then strategize and create a balanced team to take on a variety of quests. In addition to multiplayer quests, single player quests are also available for players to enhance their characters.
“Set in a world engulfed by darkness, the expansion casts players as a member of the Kingsglaive, with powers and unique abilities invoked from various Lucian kings, who join forces to bring the Light back to the kingdom of Lucis. Other members of Noctis’s crew including Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis will be made playable in future game updates.”
Another change, at least in Japan, is related to the price. The expansion was previously priced at 1,500 yen plus taxes, but it will now cost a bit more, 1,980 yen plus taxes, which translates to about $17.50. At the moment, it’s unknown whether this increased price will apply to the western version of the DLC, but it’s likely that will happen soon.
Although those that have already purchased the season pass will be able to receive the DLC at no additional charge.
Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One, and will release for PC in early 2018.
