Final Fantasy XV’s level editor, mod support and more for PC releasing 2018 By Wazi the pa on April 6, 2018 at 10:57 PM

Square Enix is bringing the Ebony level editor, mod support, character creator and more to Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition this year, the company has announced during a PAX East 2018 panel earlier today.

Beginning Fall of this year, players using the level “Ebony” editor will be able to produce all-new content from their very hands, including the creation of custom-made areas, simple quest designs and initiating events and/or actions when players interact with certain objects. Examples of such creations, as shown during the panel, include custom Chocobo races and a golf mini-game.

Once previously only available to the game’s multiplayer expansion, the character creator will now be available for use in the main story of the game on PC, changing up the appearance of Noctis. In addition, the Windows Edition will also receive mod support, allowing players and fans to upload their weapon and outfit creations to Steam Workshop.

Square Enix has also announced that PC players will be to place “User Treasure” all across the game’s world, hiding bonus items for other players to find and collect. The longer it takes for players to find the item, the better it will become. All three features are slated to release this Spring.

And finally, the game’s Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades will be coming to the Windows Edition as a standalone version this Summer, where the game will receive an update in the summer, followed by a second update in the winter. The updates will add new content such as raids and boss battles.

Final Fantasy XV is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. In case you missed it, Square Enix has also revealed new details on the upcoming set of DLC episodes for the game. Head here to read more.

    Wait, so character creator in the main game wont be coming to consoles?

  • Pleasance13

    Also, Noctis is being very inappropriate with that poor one-legged Cactuar…

    How about putting the unused areas of Niflheim to use with this?
    Shiva’s corpse, Cartanica, Tenebrae, Gralea etc

    on PC u can mod different characters and costumes already… it’s messy tho so when the mod tools will launch more people will get content by Steam Workshop the easier way. at this rate u will be able to create almost a NEW NEW game. hope we get a Cloud model from the remake for steam workshop but from SE!

  • If it was up to me or I knew how to MOD I would make a FF with NNK2 battle system or Wild Arm 3’s and have exploration be like KH2 (lots of platforming and climbing for hidden gear) .

    It’s super exciting what mods could do for this game…

    I’d leave it how it was and just focus on expanding the exploration of everything post-Leviathan fight (not including chapter 13)

    Like if their car can fly, why do they need to take the train?

  • Okay, but going forward, their focus should be clear.
    I don’t mean XV, I mean future FFs. Like 16.
    Big on exploration. HUGE on story and character development. NO PLOT HOLES (especially ones explained with DLCs). And absolutely no villains that are seen then never flushed out , not even in the last chapter of the game (the empire). To me their best FFs were 7, 10, 9 and 6. If they take all that was good in those games gameplay wise and just do graphics like FF13 and a battle system like Type-0 they’d have the best game.

    Square Enix overloaded Nomura then restricted and bounded Tabata.
    In order for future Final Fantasy’s to do well with gamers, the franchise needs a different company.
    FFXV was Square Enix’s mess, the developers and BD2 will always get my praise.

    I really hope they implement the Character Editor on Consoles too, Because why not? the console version is dry at this point

  • Lyn Evans

    Windows Edition only? <,< that would suck very hard Square Enix….I was so happy about the Charakter Editor and the standalone from Comrades but I thought it´s for every one ;__;

  • Well let’s hope they learn from this and do better. Because no one else is going to make an FF.

  • •december

    Well not necessarily no one else… hmmm, maybe a studio will buy Final Fantasy series lol – unlikely but possible

  • •december

    …PC Editions have more customization because PCs are where games are designed before they become video games on consoles lol…
    I would not be mad if this feature is purely for PC gamers.

  • I don’t want that unless it’s mistwalker
    I just square to get better

  • Z Neion

    I know but it’s still not fair if the PC Version is the only one whose getting the Updates

  • Final Fantasy

    well for mod support. obviously it is. square enix is not sony. their not risking people breaking the console some how because people thought they could spawn 50 red giants like skyrim and its…er-uhm uhhh…. space craftastic giants. for a lack of better words XD. but for comrades updates yeah i can understand why thats bull fucken shit and unfair.
