New SQEX interview. Apparently XV's post-launch development deadlines helped them create techniques to develop HD games at a faster speed than before. That's good, I think. I'd rather we didn't have to sit through five-to-six-and-going-into-ten year development cycles every time they create a large in-house HD title. Their staff have also apparently toughened up and sped up.

Oh, and a little more elucidation on the new DLC episodes following Ardyn's: Apparently it won't be about continuing or plugging up the narrative like previous episodes were. Quote: "This new content won’t be anything to keep things going, but rather, it will be offered as something with value, and something meaningful to the player’s experience."
The more they keep saying this, more I think that each one will be much further integrated into the story rather than being a separate story plug.

Edit: the most important thing about that interview is that they finally confirmed that they plan on revealing all of the DLC plans together. Which is great, I hope we find out soon

They said there will be new cosmogony pieces
Did someone find them ?
Its not new cosmogony pieces, its the old.

However, there are 31 new location lore texts you can read (I think), 7 Omega related ones, 23 monuments depicting travel of a certain king and I think other lore related texts that are new.

The rest are old but you have to fill from the beginning again.

Question. We are all replaying Chapter 14 right?

You get unique items to that chapter, is everyone willing to reset hunt and side-quest progress for those items since you have to use chapter select? Is there no way to get all of that in your post-game save file?

Basically I'm asking: Can I just play most of the story progress from Chapter 15 post-game? Will it still let me go to the base and do all the sidequests? Thanks!


Edit: oh now I get it, you HAVE to play from chapter 14 to experience it all. RIP sidequests and hunts

I'm here to save your soul!
You can play chapter 14 till you reach the gates of the citadel, only doing Cor's sidequests(you will receive an item for Gladio) so you can experience the fight the best way posible.
Then you can go back to your save from chapter 15, where you will appear as if you had defeated Cerberus . Then you can rediscover the map and do all the sidequests, grab the items and do the final part without missing anything.

Okay, i lied, you will not have Cerberus in your Bestiary. But everything else will be obtained.

Question though, will you still keep the item from Cerberus? I think he gives you one. That would be my only concern.

Hajime Tabata talks first-person warp-strikes, exploring Insomnia, the continued evolution of Final Fantasy XV, and more.

2. Where did the name Royal Edition come from?
First, we wanted to avoid naming it the Complete Edition, because we still have plans of continuing services in the future. We came up with the word ROYAL in association with the Lucis royal line, and also felt it best suited this most complete edition of FFXV available at this time. We previously had a patch named the “Crown Update,” which was also named in association with the Lucian royal family.

5. With first-person mode and an all-new dungeon, there’s quite a lot of stuff in here! Is there anything else you wish could have made its way into the Royal Edition?
I would say underwater exploration. However, since there’d be difficulties spec-wise, and with limited locations where players could play this, we prioritized the other elements.

only in comrades you get to see stuff like this, and ppl were saying the multiplayer would be a waste of resource lol
Tbh, Comrades does so much for the narrative it's not even funny, even if a decent chunk of it is text and quest based

I checked Chapters 9 and 13 earlier before the Royal Pack, but nothing was found.
Yea, I definitely appreciate the little additions to chapters 5 and 10 (the Cor dialogue not the quests lol), but I'm going to hold off on replaying the game fully until all of these little updates stop and the rest of the DLC pull through. Until then, just gonna play everything in chunks when they release until it's all done.

Hopefully they do make those chapter 9, 12 and 14 additions happen from the PE eventually.

I have to go to work in less than 5 minutes, so I might not be able to confirm this. But there might be something different about chapter 13. I just started playing and took Nocts path. When I did that, it said Verses 2 is available in the dormitory. Hopefully I can get to a rest point within the next few minutes, to see if I can switch over in game.
[Dormitory might just mean the "Special" on the main menu, but it's checking just in case]
That's always been there. You can change to Gladio at every rest room, but once you change to him you will miss the rest of Noctis path.

Did someone played chapter 9 and 13 to look for new content?
I guess everyone is busy playing the Royal content.
There's nothing new. Even played from 12 too, with the hope you maybe get something related to Luna lol I'm really confused as to why Luna was so prominent in the marketing artwork, but there's not much to her here. Maybe there's more or most likely it's gonna be patched in.

What new dialogue for Cor?

Also, what’s all this about chapter select and issues arising from using it?

Anyone care to fill me in?

I always just jumped back and forth and didn’t experience any issues... or none that I noticed at least.

Cor now calls you on the phone while you're at the Cartanica train station in Chapter 10, giving you the location of the tomb. Also, Chapter Select erases the progress made on side quests and takes away the fast travel points.
