Square Enix shares Final Fantasy XV “March Update” trailer By Erren Van Duine on March 26, 2017 at 9:16 PM

Square Enix has shared a new video outlining the newest update to Final Fantasy XV, due out March 28. Along with new enhancements to Chapter 13, players can check out the first bit of story DLC with the introduction of Episode Gladiolus.

Chapter 13 will add a separate route for Gladio and Ignis after they get split off from Noctis. You’ll see some additional cutscenes that show what took place while Noctis was on his own as well as new scenes with Ravus and Emperor Aldercapt.

Episode Gladiolus will be available on its own for $4.99 and comes included with the Season Pass. Gladiolus parts ways with his entourage and meets up with Cor, the sole survivor of the trials. Now, with his mentor at his side, Gladiolus sets out to challenge the Shield of the Founder King: the Blademaster, Gilgamesh.

    DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMNN THAT ENDINGGGGG!!!!!!

  • Victor Maciel

    That Ring Magic at the end…! <3

  • Oh so the additions to chapter 13 will be out today?? Good thing I started that speedrun yesterday…

  • Devil’s Luck

    The update is out on the 28th

  • Randy Marsh

    Wow, seems like Iedolas is getting the time in the game he truly deserved. Thank god!

  • Andrew Brown

    Is it really gonna be worth playing through that story mode again? I thought they were gonna fix other chapters but they are only doing FFXV.

  • Syul

    This looks so good! <3 Seems like my hyper-hyped state is definitely going to be worth just by what they showed on the trailer~β™ͺ x3

  • Luke Watts

    No. No it won’t.

  • Kyle

    I don’t care what anyone says; I love this game. πŸ˜€ I’m a happy sheep.

  • Uzair Syed

    Out now actually

  • Uzair Syed

    You can select it from the main menu either way

  • Uzair Syed

    You can select it from the main menu πŸ™‚

  • Adam Hedquist

    Huh…it looks good tbh. A tiny step in the right direction. I might try this out. I mean, I can try out the combat with gladio without payin’ yay.

    I really hope that they’ll keep on adding scenes and stuff that will flesh out the characters and make the story to be better told, for the other chapters too.

    One last thing. I really like that they made the arcs solid objects. That’s cool. Now….pls let there be flying monsters up there. It would be so cool to have battles up there! Just put some warp points on them…

  • β€’december

    They’re starting with updates to Chapter 13.
    They’re adding more essentially.
    Other updates are expected to follow, from the latter half of the game.

  • Randy Marsh

    Where has it been stated you can select it from the main menu? Just curious, not doubting you.

  • Uzair Syed

    https://www.reddit.com/r/FFXV/comments/61phlg/special_option_to_experience_chapter_13_part_2/

    Although that’s only the Gladiolus part I think? There might be new cutscenes to the Noctis part?

  • Artemis Polara

    They updated the trophies already, that’s nice. And yeah, as Uzair said, the update is already out despite this trailer saying it’ll be out tomorrow. Eeeek, 5.657GB update…. For my internet, that’ll take a bit

  • β€’december

    More exploration with Chocobos? YEAH!
    Off-road Regalia on the way too!
    It’s refreshing to see excitement and satisfaction return to the comments! lol

  • β€’december

    I believe that may be Alterna, revamped!

  • Eyoi

    You’re wrong! FFXV worst game ever and it should not exist!
    All these updates are pointless and make the game even worse!
    Tabata needs to be assassinated!
    #BringBackVersus
    All hail Nomura.

  • Artemis Polara
  • Eyoi

    I hope you were referring to those type of people. I was using sarcasm.

  • Adam Hedquist

    I hope you understand that sarcasm is hard to notice when it’s only in text without the tone in your voice.

  • Randy Marsh

    Oh okay. I hardly check the FF reddit, so thanks for that. I was hoping the Gladio part would be in game, that’s kind of dumb. Good question though, maybe they’ll have the new cutscenes in the main story? Ravus’ cutscenes seem very more important on his side. However, considering Gladio’s sympathy toward Ravus after his boss fight, could be possible the new scenes are on his side too.

  • Eyoi

    How could you not find “Tabata needs to be assassinated” and “All hail Nomura” sarcastic?

  • Artemis Polara

    Oh I know, πŸ˜›
    I was having my bit of fun

  • Eyoi

    πŸ˜€

  • Randy Marsh

    Failure at mimicking a Versus fanboy for one obvious reason…lack of a link to a Final Fantasy XV: Versus petition. If you’re gonna try and do it, at least try to go all out my man!

  • Artemis Polara

    Plus he wasn’t calling everyone a sheep πŸ˜›

  • Adam Hedquist

    Yes, yes you did. However…most haters are that retarded…I’ve seen worse. So do you understand why some people can mistake you for one?

  • Artemis Polara

    I feel as though I didn’t help matters, I was just having fun. If I wasn’t and thought he was serious, I would’ve just ignored him πŸ˜›

  • Eyoi

    Fuck, I need to brush up on my versus fanboy skills. I won’t disappoint next time.

  • Adam Hedquist

    I wasn’t mad over his comment or anything and just like you if he was a hater I would’ve just flaged and then ignore him.

    I never said I thought he was a hater either. I just wanted to make a point clear to him when he said he was being sarcastic. Sure after he added stuff to his original comment the sillyness became more obvious but my point is still valid (I mean, I’ve seen more shocking comments from real haters) and he didnt get it so w/e lol πŸ˜›

  • Patrick Bateman

    why is 1 hitting the “hardest boss in the game” a good thing? lol

  • Artemis Polara

    You can load into the new chapter 13 stuff from the main menu but the stats are preset. Took me ~25 minutes to complete it all. Now waiting on the Episode Gladiolus stuff

  • Bobby/Godless

    really?

  • Artemis Polara

    26 minutes actually (I recorded it)

  • Artemis Polara

    I can’t quite get Alterna to kill the Adamantoise as shown in the trailer. I assume it’s a chance thing. Also Death dishes a constant 2800-3000 to it.

  • Artemis Polara

    Nevermind, just got it to work… The entire mountain was erased from the map and there’s just a crater there now… Or at least the map hasn’t switched back to normal yet.

  • Artemis Polara

    Yep, the mountain came back

  • Codes McGodes

    Really looking forward to this. Still got my fingers crossed that they plan to add story content throughout the whole game and not just certain parts.

  • Noctis

    this update will not change the fact that they are all gonna die pitifully!

  • Justice V

    I knew you were being sarcastic, probably because it’s similar to my snark/sarcasm sensibilities. However I actually have seen a lot of Vs fanboi’s rallying for Tabata’s death for ruining their precious vs game and tarnishing Nomura’s dream project. Zealots are crazy man, crazy I tell ya.

  • Manuel Eduardo Koegler

    Good good, now next up on the list is those redesigned magitek exosuits.
    They better be Glauca armor Square!

  • Bank Alexander

    PLEASE LOOK FORWARD TO NEXT TIME!

  • Dod

    That’s a shame really.

  • β€’december

    Holy shit! They should’ve had it look like Glauca’s armour from the beginning, you’re a genius!

  • β€’december

    Don’t play it then sourpuss, lol

  • β€’december

    They’re working on the latter half of the game mostly. Even I didn’t forsee the chocobo heights addition… We’re only in March!

  • RAGDEVIII

    Whenever there is a fanfeedback survery or SE asking for request please say add Hard Mode that would be something worth having .

  • Noctis

    In fact I will not play it!

    Just watched the full video of the patch skipping the most of the time….and as i said its useless. like Tabata and his Team

  • Manuel Eduardo Koegler

    Have said it on every survey up until now. It’s gotta be required in ordered to not make new game plus anything more than a breeze.

  • Lord Shiru

    That would be great !!
    I will also be pleased with a feature that let you keep Older version of the characters in “normal” playthrough ;-).

  • Lord Shiru

    Yes, looks like it deals a fixed percent damage based on the target’s HP.
    I tried to buff my Magic stat up and I was still doing 124~140 damage to the Red Giant.
    That’s great, because Death didn’t do any damage at all before the patch.

  • Lord Shiru

    Nice work SE πŸ˜‰ !
    That’s a great addition to the game !

    [Death]

    I no(c)ticed that Death does some constant damage when not able to instant kill the target.
    It seems to be a fixed percentage based on target’s max HP.
    I was doing 120~140 damage against the Red Giant even when buffing my Magic stat up.

    [Holy]

    Holy seems to be stronger !

    [Alterna]

    Alterna has some new animations that looks like the ending (when Noctis absorbs all Lucii powers) and Kingsglaive (when Nyx summons the Lucii).

    Some Royal arms can be seen briefly while casting Alterna :).

  • Clawson_J

    lol that’s kinda harsh..

  • Manuel Eduardo Koegler

    I’d love that too, because the endgame outfits look better with the aged characters.

  • Shinobuden

    The power scaling is already weird enough as it is, what with plenty of enemies being able to one shot you into danger mode, so wouldn’t a hard mode be kind of redundant? I mean if they add it then that’s great for those who want the challenge, but I don’t envy those who will go through their items 2x as fast…

  • Shinobuden

    Because he’s a sensitive little snowflake that takes everything seriously and likes to make up his own interpretation of what people mean regardless of how blatantly you spell things out for him (such as your obviously sarcastic comment), and refuses to see things any other way once he’s made up his own interpretation of things. Speaking from personal experience of having dealt with the guy before. *shrug*

  • stevenm281

    So, is this Verse 2 only included as a separate thing on the Special section, or is it also included in the main Chapter 13?

  • Victor Maciel

    Adamantoise its not even close to be the hardest boss in the game. You can kill him in 10 minutes. Angelus and Dread Behemoth were so much harder. lol

  • Victor Maciel

    I don’t think is them that will die pitifully… Its something easier to happen with an angry fanboy/hater.

  • stevenm281

    Dread Behemoth took me 10 minutes, Adamantoise took me 3 hours…

  • Adam Hedquist

    Seriously, what is your problem?

    ”Because he’s a sensitive little snowflake that takes everything
    seriously and likes to make up his own interpretation of what people
    mean”

    ok 1: I never said I didn’t get his sarcasm. He added things to his original comment and that made it even more obvious.

    2: You shouldn’t talk about interpretation. That’s exactly what you’re doing yourself now.

    3. I told him my point. That’s all. Justice V got it, he didn’t.

    sigh* you are just rude. Would you pls stop that?

  • Syul

    Holy Molly, calm down? They messed up with FFXV but Tataba and Co. are REAL PEOPLE? Like… I don’t know, it’s a game, JUST A GAME.

    Saying stuff like that, as if it’s justified because they messed up with a game, IS messed up.

    So you know… You’re not the first one or the last one to feel disappointed and angry about how the game turned out after years of development (which I can understand even if I don’t share the feeling), but, saying something so rude…? Don’t stoop so low… Less for a game.

  • John Fletcher

    Is that why “Special” is back in the main menu but grayed out for me? I stopped at chapter 8, been waiting for them to redo chapter 13 (if this is what they call a redo… that would be changing what’s there… not adding in some side bit with the OTHER characters..) and add in the extra cutscenes to the BASE game (basically been waiting for them to finish the damn game).

  • Lord Shiru

    Both πŸ˜‰ !

  • i know, i was so mad when I saw that! i spent like a whole day speedrunning this for no reason! damn it!

  • we will be in April by the end of the week

  • stevenm281

    do you know how/where it prompts in the main game?

  • Patrick Bateman

    notice the ” around Hardest Boss, since it was said to be the most difficult boss when XV was released
    lol and Angelus isn’t hard at all, just time consuming ( on normal ) if the Dread Behemoth was one of those timed hunts i missed so it so i can’t judge that one lol

  • Verdine

    So, no more time quests? Also I don’t really like the change they made renaming Prompto’s and Noctis photos to auto and maual… :/
    Btw. Am I the only one who after one of the updates (two/three updates ago?) have a black screen when boys getting out of the car? I pick destination, then get loading screen, then it’s a black screen while the group getting out of the car and talk, then it auto saves and it finally loads as it should…

  • Lord Shiru

    Chapter 13, when you go to the rest room… one of the bed (middle one) should give a prompt to let you switch to Gladio’s part.

  • Codes McGodes

    I’m actually quite glad they decided to add the Chocobo heights bit. I was quite disappointed that I couldn’t climb on those structures during my initial playthrough. I’m really looking forward to seeing more updates. I hope they do add more to the first half but I will agree that the second half needs it much more.
