Final Fantasy XV's Latest Update Adds a New Verse To Chapter 13

The new story additions to Final Fantasy XV are live, setting the stage for DLC.

The next update to Final Fantasy XV is now live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Update 1.06 has a number of new additions and tweaks to the game, but the biggest change is to Chapter 13, as promised. The new story content is called Chapter 13, Verse 2, allowing you to play through the events of that chapter as Gladiolus. Ignis is also by your side.

Hajime Tabata on Final Fantasy XV's DLC, Chapter 13: "This Won't Be a Completely Different Game"

Chapter 13 was the most disliked chapter of the original game, dropping the bromantic nature of Final Fantasy XV to focus purely on Noctis. The chapter also removed all of Noctis' weapons in favor of a single ring, trapping players in a dark factory with no hope of getting back to the game they loved. Worse, when you do start to see hints of hope, the game throws some fairly major story beats at you out of nowhere.

On the bright side, Chapter 13, Verse 2 is easily playable. Once the update is installed, just head to the "Special" section of the title menu. The menu message when you start up the new Verse notes that "character stats and gear do not carry over from the main game, and progress is not saved." It's more extra flavor than a full part of Final Fantasy XV's experience.

Chapter 13, Verse 2 sets the stage for tomorrow's release of the Episode Gladiolus premium DLC. That DLC will costs $4.99 on its own, or comes as part of the Final Fantasy XV Season Pass. Gladiolus meets with his mentor Cor and takes on Final Fantasy mainstay Gilgamesh.

Patch 1.06 also improves Noctis' Arcana ring spells, temporarily shuts down Timed Quests, and adds a host of other bug fixes and gameplay tweaks.
