Final Fantasy XV Version 1.16 adds new story content to Chapter 12 By Tony Garsow on September 28, 2017 at 10:07 PM

In Version 1.16, available now, Final Fantasy XV is getting new story content in Chapter 12.

According to Square Enix, these scenes will include more about the “War of the Astrals” that sets up much of the background of the game’s events. In Version 1.15 the game added a Chapter Select, so it won’t be necessary to start a whole new playthrough to watch these scenes.

Version 1.16 is 4.306 GB.

  • There used to be a time when the full story of a game came out when the game released. Not devs bite off so much more than they can chew we git 80% of a game at launch and bits and pieces of the rest as patch and DLC. If it was just extra dungeons and loot and hidden bosses that would be fine. But this is fucking story. NO.

  • Fallenblood

    i want unlock nifelheim map+new monster+new dungeon. i dont care powerpoint Astrals story content

  • Mochi

    This is what was voted at the top of what fans wanted the most in the game. You idiot. This wasn’t part of the full game, it’s an addition.

  • Artemis Polara

    Agreed

  • Randy Marsh

    Honestly this is still an improvement from the previous cutscene we had before here. There’s actually a lot more emotion in this scene than at launch, which was basically “Oh King of Kings, take this Trident and my nakedness to summon” and followed by Noctis crying. So I will give them a pass on this one.

    Although, why have it as a dialogue tree? Was it really that hard to integrate it properly into the cutscene?

  • NoctLightCloud

    Nice!!!

  • Codes McGodes

    The power point presentation is so…..lazy. They did the same thing with Mass Effect 3’s ending. And the conversation tree is an odd choice, having this benevolent Shiva just floating there, waiting to be addressed. I think those scenes would have been better shown at a different time since Noctis was currently freezing and worried about his friends. The extended scene with Luna was fine, but imo would have been better if it were played before her death (also where did Ravus go?). She needs development before her death to make the player sad when she’s killed. Like I honestly still don’t care about her, and her love for Noctis is still so forced. I mean, this is better than nothing, and I appreciate that they’re adding anything at all, but it’s disappointing that a year after the game’s release, they’ve only added this little bit. I was hoping by the concept art that they’d actually show giant Shiva’s death. But they must really not have many people working on the patch cutscenes if this is all they’ve made in six months. I will continue to support their efforts in the hopes that they add more, but so far I’m getting the feeling SE genuinely doesn’t understand what’s so wrong with the story.

  • eijin_kiver

    could be they don’t have a money to making astral story? or keeping for ardyn DLC?

  • Origami Rose

    luna cant get a cellphone and just call noctis? i dont buy the love story of these two heffas.

  • Codes McGodes

    I’m sure that’s the reason. I guess I’m just disappointed because those concept arts really got me excited. I wasn’t expecting to literally just see that same concept art in a power point slideshow haha.

  • stevenm281

    Woot Woot!!!!

    Available Now!

  • Games Das

    An addition that was supposed to be in the game from first day.If you recall the survey page properly,all the update options that you had to fill,apart from the playable characters ones,were bound to be in the game.Check it on the internet if you have forgotten.

  • Games Das

    Heh Heh…Well said.This simple thing,is one of many examples,to prove that Final Fantasy XV had very poor direction despite having,probably,a strong production team.

  • Games Das

    Browse NovaCrystallis properly.Square Enix only added those updates which slightly detailed the story.They are planning for a second Season Pass which will,most likely,include Ardyn’s story and much more for a price that they will accounce in November.
    Just imagine this milking…even after paying $89.99 for preordering the Deluxe Edition.

  • •december

    IT’S SO DOPEY

  • •december

    …why. not. have. BOTH?!
    🙂

  • Soldier Blue

    That art doesn’t blend very well with the game’s aesthetic.

  • Noctis Leonhart Strife

    I liked the new scenes. Very good. And I was not disappointed as static scenes, many JRPGs use this artifice and are not even criticized. But when it comes to FF …
    I hope they keep adding cutcenes by the end of 2018. May more come.
    I would like to be added to the gameplay and cutcenes of Noctis in Insomnia before their departure with friends. Even if it was in the dream world. It would be wonderful to catch a glimpse of Versus XIII.

    Another point that I would like to be included in the main game, is the platinum demo with Noctis child that should be included as a special episode.

  • insults? Mature.
    Even if the fan voted for it. There used to be a time when the base story didnt have plot holes like FFXV did actually have. If you dont play the character dlc theres plenty of plot holes and gaps in general world info. And barely any development of the villains. Thats not good writing to me. Square is flailing and dying in my eyes. As a fan i dont want to see that happen. But im not going to lie and say i liked anything other than Noctis in this game.

  • Ulises

    The scenes were really good, I just feel kind of sad because they weren’t there from the beginning. Man this game could have been so damn epic…

  • Noctis Leonhart Strife

    So I do not understand why the FFXV updates are so big and do not add much, almost the size of a new game, 4.3 GB.

  • •december

    Conspiracy!
    Something to do with expansion of Insomnia/Niflheim probably??

  • •december

    this

  • •december

    Oh shit yeah.
    More Insomnia cutscenes from before the Departure.
    Didn’t think of that! Want this..

  • Ryuke

    These additional scenes are good, even if their execution is a bit lazy. Such a shame they weren’t there at launch so that everyone who played the game early were able to experience it fully integrated in their first play through.

    A lot more like this is needed though, preferably without the slideshow to depict the scenes as well…!

  • Noctis Leonhart Strife

    I want a gameplay that adds Noctis to Insomnia as in Versus XIII. I paid for it, did you hear Square-Enix well?

  • Noctis Leonhart Strife

    We are all happy with updates and sad because we have not experienced all of them are not released. I think they should finish more sequels and launch all of them as a major upgrade, rather than throwing everything to pieces. The experience would be more interesting.

  • Mehmed

    I’m sorry but I’m against it.
    Why? Because up until now they didint do it and I don’t wanna wait for the end of 2018 to just get a little update. They should have made everything in it at the start but now, well.
    So now I want them to get little by little updates and re-release the game as a Definitive Edition with everything in it, cohersive if possible.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Theses static images do not fit the aesthetic of this game and comes off lazy, as they should of been fully animated scenes. This slideshow plus the shoehorned in Omen trailer dream really make the artstyle of this game inconsistent.

  • G.H.

    The only thing that hurts is, that if I wanted to experience the full game I had to wait a whole year. It sucks when you are an “early adopter” and you pay the full price.

  • CRIMSON-XIII

    glad this is one small update, hoping they do another in november and december, along with ep ignis. waiting a while before i can replay it.

  • CRIMSON-XIII

    it just sucks that we will have to wait until late 2018 for bigger content patched in, even in earlier sections of the game

  • •december

    Yes, yes and I know avoiding spoilers is going to be a bitch,
    but i’m gonna wait a while too
    its worth it so it feels like a ‘fresh’ experience,
    although i know everyone’s been finished the game already lol

  • Games Das

    Come on,which game is 4.3 GB these days?

  • alef321

    yawnn, let it die.

    the ass,ass, creed was the end
    I might check the multiplayer cause the game seems improved, that’s about it tou

  • alef321

    LMAO AT THE trailer bits sprinkled inside the game.
    this game is a walking corpse.

  • alef321

    They are pretty much making stuff as they go story wise.

  • Jesiah Grant

    It was super weird, especially since it made no sense in game.

  • James Stine

    The FFXV updates are probably large because they never implemented a patcher into the game to replace chunks of huge data files and instead have to upload the entire chunk regardless if only a little bit of information was altered.

  • CallMeGod

    LOL you must be one kind of stupid. People voted for this because the story was shit and the game was incomplete. These added cutscenes just goes to show that FF15 was an incomplete shit game with poorly executed story. Even this cutscene was poorly executed, but at least it add more depth to Luna, Gentiana, and Ravus character even though not much.

  • Patrick Bateman

    I’m happy to be seeing all these editions to the story, i just really wish this was all in the game from the get-go :. Now that the game is getting more and more “Complete” Story wise I may just pick this up soon and go through it one more time the way it was MEANT to be. I got the season pass and havn’t even played Episode Gladio yet LOL

  • Patrick Bateman

    aside from the Season Pass isn’t all this new story content free? if it wasn’t free i’d agree, but they did the right thing. Ultimate Edition Pre-Orderer right here <—- So I feel your pain haha

  • Patrick Bateman

    Don’t play it now then, wait for ALL the content, and when you pick it up again it’ll feel totally different. I havn’t played since I beat it pretty much ( before Episode Gladio even came out ) and thought i’d never play it again, now with all the DLC’s and free updated story missions and updated combat systems already out, and with more to come, I’m getting the urge to play again. I’m glad i took that massive break because I easily poured in 200 hours + just trying to 100% everything my first run through and would’ve been bored as fuck of FFXV by now.

  • CRIMSON-XIII

    i beat the game in december 2016. and im waiting for at least the 3 DLC eps to be out before i touch it again, and by then some more cutscenes, like chap 11s and chap 12s ? or 13s ?

  • Codes McGodes

    I’m saving a full 2nd playthrough for when they’ve released everything. The addition of all the dlc and patch content together, will hopefully be enough to satisfy the game’s story needs.

  • gabrieuTG

    Still waiting for that “awesome unnanounced expansion” that Tabata mentioned

  • Games Das

    Look closely at the Final Fantasy XV logo and then watch this cutscene.You will realise that the sleeping woman in the logo is Eos and not Lunafreya,as shown in the after-credits scene.
    What an inconsistent and disgraceful direction by Tabata who couldn’t even differentiate between Eos and Lunafreya.

  • Codes McGodes

    That’s basically why they had that scene at the end. The woman was originally supposed to be Eos (or Etro at the time), presumably because she would actually play a role in the story. But since Tabata wanted to say fuck all and do his own thing, and it was too late to change the logo, he added that garbage scene in at the very end to force people to make the connection that ohhh it was actually Luna the wholllle time.

    Tabata is trash tbh.

  • Codes McGodes

    Isn’t Comrades the “expansion” they were talking about?

  • stevenm281

    nah, the multiplayer expansion was already announced when Tabata teased the unannounced one

  • •december

    Correct. I’m guessing the unannounced expansion is likely to become divided amongst the Season Pass 2 content… Hopefully it isn’t.

  • stevenm281

    I hadn’t thought of that but now that you’re mentioning it…. I’m afraid this could totally be the case.

  • Codes McGodes

    Ahh okay. I didn’t realize multiplayer was announced that long ago.

  • stevenm281

    it was announced when they announced the Season Pass.

  • Mehmed

    Did you forget? It’s the Assasins Creed Festival DLC.
    And its not awesome at all.

  • Phoenix Stark

    Holy crap with the feels….. this game…. always finding new ways to destroy me…..♡

  • •december

    that’s not an expansion,
    it most likely will either be an addition/part of season pass 2
    or an expansions of Niflheim/Altissia as a free update in 2018

  • Mehmed

    I do hope you are right and I am wrong. But SE and Tabata kept me right till this day. Certainly, I do hope you are right.

  • Dod

    A cutscene with jpeg’s. Lul.

  • Average Afro

    Can’t WAIT for the PC version with all this in to experience it again 😀

  • mirrio

    Not as much as you.
    And what a dumb way to try to bash the game.

  • Codes McGodes

    What’s a dumb way to bash the game? Telling the truth?

  • Kyoji Shirakani

    Same…. I dearly want to be able to explore both Altissia and Niflheim, that entire continent area. Hell, I want them to make the entire world seamlessly cohesive where you can explore ALL of it in the Type F…

    If it takes a Season Pass 2 to fund that content, I will gladly buy it.

  • Kyoji Shirakani

    I’m a day 1 buyer also… I have no regrets. I’ve played the vanilla game for 180 hours and have absolutely no regrets. Our support is what has enabled Tabata’s team to stay together and finish the game/add more content.

    I am VERY grateful that S-E/Tabata are continuing to update and patch/add content to the game for free. Coz you know what the alternative is that almost ALL OTHER COMPANIES take? They abandon the game. But no, they are finishing the game for free, and copping undeserved hate for it from a bunch of entitled brats who don’t realize no, the game did NOT have 10-13 years of dev time, it had TWO years under Tabata and 10+ of DEV HELL WHERE NOTHING GOT DONE.

    Us ‘early adopters’ basically funded the finishing of the game. If the game had sold poorly out of the gate, not only would it not have gotten finished, but you can forget about dreams of FF16 or whatever big AAA JRPG as all the poor sales would have proven is that ‘big JRPG’s don’t sell’ anymore.

    Then all the entitled brats can go cry in the mobile scam game future they deserve where companies put in minimal effort and create nothing but shitty cash grabs.

  • stevenm281

    4 years with Tabata, he started in 2012!
