A Half-Life Costume is Coming to Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition Because Why the Hell Not

Noctis knows a few things about being the right man in the wrong place.

Remind me never to say, "Now I've seen everything!" when I talk about Final Fantasy XV's downloadable content. I thought the series reached peak weird with its Assassin's Creed crossover, but man, I was way off. Now, if you purchase Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition before May 1, you can grab a Gordon Freeman costume.

Yes, that Gordon Freeman. The bespectacled dude who speaks softly (or not at all) and carries a big crowbar. The dude who's probably going to be suspended in cliffhanger hell until the sun burns out because Half-Life 3 is probably never going to happen. Even if it does happen, many of the contributors who made the alien-blasting series special to begin with left Valve long ago. The series' original writer, Mike Laidlaw, even published a story last year that appears to be a possible plot summary for Half-Life 3 (just with a few vital name changes).

"Welcome. Welcome to Insomnia. It's not necessarily safer here."

It's good to see Gordon Freeman lives on in some measure, however weird. The "Half-Life Pack" comes with an equippable HEV suit, a crowbar, and a pair of "scientist glasses" (Glasses suit Noctis. Just saying). You can wear the equipment through Final Fantasy XV's main quest, or you can pop it on your avatar in the multiplayer Comrades expansion.

If you're unsure if you're ready for the responsibility of dressing up Noctis as a genius scientist currently languishing in creative limbo, you can try the demo of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition when it goes live on February 26.
