Square Enix announced today when the Comrades multiplayer expansion for Final Fantasy XV is coming: October 31, 2017. Comrades is downloadable content for the single-player title allowing players to team up and take on cooperative missions within the world of FFXV. The expansion takes place during a very specific time in the game's overall story.
USgamer's own Nadia and Kat played the multiplayer beta together and their time with the expansion wasn't entirely amazing.
"There's not a lot wrong with Comrades, but it's not riveting, either. It's not nearly as deep as Final Fantasy XIV, and there's little exploration to be had. I believe it's for people like Kat and myself – people who are down with playing a frankly mindless multiplayer experience for an hour while chatting about irrelevant things," Nadia wrote previously.
"Kat and I did very little planning when we took on each of the beta's three missions. We just executed Final Fantasy XV's commands while gabbing about hockey, soccer, and ham (you had to be there). It might not have hurt to do a little more planning, since we did indeed die a couple of times. Really, though, Comrades' fights don't offer a lot of opportunities for strategy."
We'll see if Square Enix added a bit more depth to the experience when the full release of Comrades comes on October 31.
