Getting such a bright and decent shot of Gralea in that trailer reaaaaaally makes me want to explore it more. Maybe they can expand Chapter 13 while they are at it lol. Or maybe Ardyn's DLC has some of it in there.

got a bit emotional, ive never seen such a big post-launch support for a single-player game, i'm very glad it was for FFXV.

and stop hyping the "end of the journey" tabata
I agree, this is the biggest post-launch support I've seen so far, I'm very happy that it's for FFXV as well, I would say the post-launch support of Super Smash Brothers. for Wii U and 3DS comes close second to it, due to the DLC it got.

I'd say NMS right now has some of the biggest support but obviously because they actually needed to fix their game (it's pretty good now and they are still updating).

On FFXV, I'm just very excited for things to come. I'm sure we wont hear anything about Ep. Ardyn until it's practically ready, or any other DLC at this point. The royal update is a very nice surprise, and I can't wait to see what else they are planning

So apparently these are the patch notes for the upcoming update:

https://www.resetera.com/posts/3999022/

Update contents

- It corresponds to the new DLC FFXV ROYAL pack.
- Character illustration was added.
- Awarded works of the 4th snapshot contest were exhibited at restaurants in Gardena Watchingfield.
- A new quest was added to CHAPTER10.
- Various defects were corrected.
Some speculate it could be for February though, given how different this is from the initial description of the Jaunary patch. We'll find out soon probably.

New quest in Chapter 10? Huh, weird and interesting... If this is in the February update after this patch, that would be interesting, but not much to base off from, perhaps a playable section in Cartanica?

To be honest, it has to mean we are getting some form of an expansion there, be it story and/or environment. There are only 2 places you go in Chapter 10, the train station and the dungeon. The dungeon is linear, so there is no room for an extra mission there, and the station is...a station lol. It is pretty possible that they may have made Cartanica explorable to some degree. Unless they expanded the dungeon but I just don't see how.

On that note. I got a response on reddit from r/FFXV's mod after he deleted my post for relaying this info on Reddit:
scissorman[M] 1 point 7 minutes ago
"As they have removed this information, whilst we've actually archived the original page we are choosing to wait until it is publicly released to prevent potential confusion and/or misinformation.
This is purely due to the fact that the 1.21 update information was added early, with an incorrect date and that the JP patch notes for the next one has been not only amended, but removed completely."


It seems that the Japanese website likely uploaded the wrong patchnotes, due to the timing confusion. This is 100% in fact happening, but likely right before the Royal Update DLC hits.

Perhaps the new quest in the Chapter 10 update is in that small town. Shame those patch notes got out too early, and this video came along, would've been a nice surprise, but it doesn't hinder me.
