Final Fantasy 15 Adds Character Switching With Patch 1.20

Now you can be all Ignis, all the time.

Final Fantasy XV's latest update is finally live and ready to download on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Patch 1.20 allows players to switch between Noctis, Gladiolus, Prompto, or Ignis in battle, each with their own respective style of play based on their DLC episodes.

Once you've updated, the ability is available in the Ascension menu, within the Technique tree. Each node costs 20 AP to activate. Once you finish combat, you'll still be wandering the world as Noctis though. Sad.

The update also moves Timed Quests into an offline function. The Comrades multiplayer mode gets a bit of love too. Online-only Daily Quests have been added, which offer shards you can trade in at an NPC for special buffs. Square Enix has also made some general tweaks and changes to the mode.

The update brings to close a solid year of updates for Final Fantasy XV. Next year will see the release of Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition and Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition. Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata also hinted at another three DLC episodes in 2018.
