    Royal Edition...I'm interested in what I saw. It'll be interesting how things turn out. I am hyped, but also have so many questions at the same time. I do wonder for those additional bossses if they will be in isolated situations like what we have gotten in the DLC episodes thus far.

    Hard mode is rather pointless imo since it would be easier for them to create isolated situations where they can have set conditions. BD2 are capable of providing really challenging/difficult fights, and some of the updates have provided that.

    LOL!

    His face is funny. I'm sorry but I can't help but laugh lol.

    Ah ok. I spot them all now.

    It took me awhile to see that Ramuh was surging forward and his beard was scattered.

    Not sure Leviathan is so small. She's a majestic divine beast who had a huge role in Ch9. If you ask me, Leviathan and Titan should be swapped around. Levi should be the central astral.

    Bahamut looks like the one in Crisis Core.

    It appears that they're slowly ticking of all of the things listed in the survey awhile back.

    They're slowly but surely doing that based on what they're releasing.

    This is good. If they keep their head down, ignore the noise, work at their own pace, and announce things only when they're truly ready, we're looking at a very different FFXV by the end of this year.

    *tingles with excitement*

    The DLC updates chapter 14 and extends the ending to the game. You can see the final questline "A Cure for Insomnia" on the side, meaning this affects the main story. Cerberus and the Kings are extra bosses for the main story, you can see they are part of that questline and have objectives tied to them, as well as being between levels 46-53 (so far).

    Omega is likely not part of the main story. It is level 119 and probably an optional postgame quest.

    What I like is that this one doesn't clearly check any of those updates. It does something that people wished for they never specified they were doing. People wanted Cerberus, check. I know several people that actually wanted to fight the Lucian Kings, check. Insomnia was one of the biggest things people wanted to explore, even if it is destroyed and obscenely huge. They did update the Armiger abilities though so that was one thing.

    It makes me hopeful for what else they have in store beyond Ardyn. I'm really banking on that mid game expansion. It is the most important thing this game needs now.

    So going off of your response I am going to assume no. Thanks for the help.

    sorry i updated the post too late. Omega is likely an isolated, optional superboss. There could also be more they arent talking about. Usually the devs don't spill the beans on the entire DLC.

    it does feel this update gave noctis the opportunity to act like a king, commanding a squad of warriors, giving speeches and such... it really shows how mature he becomes.

    Guys, even after two days, I'm still excited about the Chapter 14 update/Insomnia Ruins Expansion, I know I said the second half of FFXV, in it's current form, lacking, but, one of the big important things for me for video games are the final battles/endgames, like in KH2 for example in The World That Never Was and the events that transpired there, or in Horizon Zero Dawn's final chapter. Chapter 14, while it was really nice and interesting, was underwhelming at launch, and there weren't enough cutscenes, and bosses before fighting Ardyn, and Insomnia Ruins, at launch, didn't feel very meaningful and was a bit small and underutilized, and while I enjoyed the ending, I was left with questions, and with this new update to Chapter 14, things are looking to change for me, a bigger Insomnia with more endgame bosses, such as Cerberus and the Kings of Lucis, and potential clarification to the main game's ending, and Cor's involvement, even though he barely grew on me but he could redeem himself here for me, FFXV's endgame in Chapter 14 looks like it's going to be more meaningful, longer, and packed in terms of a final battle, and with a bigger Insomnia Ruins which I'm also excited about, and the thought of that excites me out of all of this so far. I do have my expectations low, of course, but I can't help but be excited for this.

    Probably a design choice to counter the criticism from FFXIII with the "it feels more like a movie than game" type comments.

    I don't blame you. I'm quite excited for it myself.

    I'm getting kinda annoyed at how many people are complaining and saying "this should've been in the game since day one" though.

    Well no shit sherlock but they're at least doing something about it and not just abandoning it once it was released, y'know?

    Same thing goes for the entitled whiners who keep saying they should get this for free since they bought the season pass.

    It was stated, quite clearly, what was going to be in the season pass. Logically speaking, they've got no reason to demand this to be free. Staff and devs need to be paid too.

    I wonder how many extra hours of content will be in the royal pack? 5 hours?

    Which would have pushed back the release date several years or on the other extreme the content would have been lackluster. The way I see it, if FFXV had not been successful during 2017, then support would have stopped for it by now. If SE and BD2 want to put some of the profits back into the game, I say more power to them as many companies won't do that.

    Exactly.

    I think people are forgetting that having enough time to work on the royal edition stuff on top of the base game stuff pre release was a factor that needs to be considered.

    It wouldn't have been possible.

    Its like people still can't fucking take their heads out of the sand and look at the bigger picture.

    It was the team's choice to continue extended support based on fan request, they could have ignored that. Hell, they could have passed on even doing any of the year one post-release content in the first place despite making profit anyway, yet they didn't. So here we are until the end of 2018.

    I'm personally extremely fed up with the amount of severe dead horse kicking going around whenever those certain group of people react to any latest announced FFXV content, it helps practically no one when one side is hellbent on initiating toxic behavior towards BD2's efforts in giving a damn about their audience/base game. Especially after how much hell they went through with the 2016 deadline schedule + making it clear that what we're receiving right now literally couldn't have been possible back then.

    FFXV has put more light on the reality of the situation that people that play games are rarely united. Sadly, for a lot of them if they aren't able to enjoy it then nobody else can at the same time. There is not enough contentment/self-satisfied as many seek conformity as well. I have seen some fairly disgusting remarks made toward some FFXIII fans back when it was the hot topic. Those were dark days indeed. It is unfortunate as I'm sure many would be interested in discussing the newest game and may even be interested in trying out past titles....but the toxicity is off putting and discourages that conversation for a good number of people. The Final Fantasy subreddit is just one example.

    Oh, not only that. One famous website which rised on ashes of another famous website turned out more toxic and awful place than his predecessor. Only Bazztek is a small piece of light and goodness there.

    If anyone is interested here is a guide to how the game measures dmg output.

    TL;DR:
    1. Strenght/Magic stats are more important than the the wepons/spells respective power value.
    2. Any + - % bonus modifiers from gears, accesories, weapons, food buffs, etc, greatly alters your dmg output (and it's why the Zwills Crossblades are broken).
    3. Vitality (phy def) and Spirit (mg def) give disminishing returns, focusing on having more HP and HP regen is far more productive.

    What is the image on the right from? Is it a new CG scene from the Royal edition, or just concept art?
