Final Fantasy XV Director Will Leave Nude Mods to the "Moral Sense of All the Players"

Final Fantasy XV Director Will Leave Nude Mods to the "Moral Sense of All the Players"

Okay, this is going to turn out well.

Final Fantasy XV is coming to the PC, and that means one thing: mods. Actually when you bring up mods you also bring up the spectre of mods. In a new interview, Final Fantasy XV's director talks about the internal discussions that took place when the subject of player's freedom regarding the types of mods that would be allowed in the upcoming PC version of the game.

"Obviously there's some worry about 'we've made this great world and people might try to stuff all kind of strange things into it and mess it up,"' said Haijime Tabata to PCGamesN at Gamescom. "When we were getting together for discussion all the people together in the project were airing out their worries, [nude mods] were something people were really worried about," he said.

However, for Tabata the ultimate decision was to allow players to have full access to the game they purchased, including what mods they choose to use. "What's stronger in my mind is the fact that I don't want to limited people too much... It's a thing they've bought, it's their game now."

As for mods, Tabata says," I don't think it's a good thing, but we're going to leave it to the moral sense of all the players out there." A pretty bold statement if I do say so myself.

The PC version of Final Fantasy XV, oddly titled Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition, was announced earlier this week, and mistakenly suggested the game required a huge 170GB of hard drive space. This was later clarified as a mistake. The PC version won't be out until early 2018, plenty of time for players to examine whether or not they want to make Tabata sad with "strange things".
