Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer Comrades Mode Now Available as a Standalone Game

Grab some buds and hit the road.

Final Fantasy XV's multiplayer mode, Comrades, is now available on its own as a standalone product.

During a dark Final Fantasy XV live stream event that announced the departure of Square Enix director Hajime Tabata and the cancellation of a slate of Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix announced that the previously released multiplayer mode, Comrades, would be split-off into its own game.

To celebrate the launch Comrades started up a special Final Fantasy XIV Online collaboration with a new in-game quest, "Adventurer from Another World." Players can also engage in standard quests including Hunt, Defense and Escort quests with up to four players in online co-op. Players who already own Comrades via the Final Fantasy XV expansion can download Comrades standalone for free.

Players take the role of a Kingsglaive soldier six months after the events of the main game, and players can customize their characters through missions and co-op events. When we played the console expansion version we found it to be "fine," though weren't really clear as to why it exists. It sounds like Square Enix is committed to Comrades and will be supporting the now standalone mode with content updates going forward.
