The day-one patch of FINAL FANTASY XV, dubbed Crown Update, had its full notes released on the official website.
FINAL FANTASY XV’s original release date was September 30. However, Square Enix decided to delay it in order to implement fixes and enhancements. Despite the full copy leaking in some countries around the world, the official release date is Tuesday, November 29. A day-one patch, titled Crown Update, will be available to further enhance the game, making last minute additions and improvements. Nova Crystallis translated the patch notes for us, originally available in Japanese on the official website.
These additions and changes are as follow:
Battle: Addition of actions inspired by the Omen trailer, improvements to “wait mode”, and additional battle screen effects to make it easier for players to understand the status of their health.
Field: Players will be able to shift forward when not engaged in battle and a music player has been made available when exploring the world on foot.
Menu: A gallery section has been added where players can check the dishes cooked by Ignis and the fish caught by Noctis.
Regalia: Opening the menu while auto-driving is enabled will not halt driving and a Regalia Shop has been added to allow players to shop on the go.
Event: Event scenes from Kingsglaive: FINAL FANTASY XIV and the Omen trailer have been added.
Additional improvements: Bug fixes, camera improvements in close quarters, menu navigation improvements, changes to towns and the open world made to fit the scenario, side-quests balanced, the addition of fish types, dishes and fishing locations, and Leviathan boss encounter further improved.
We had a brief look at the patch details earlier this week when fans around the world started sharing their experience with the early acquired copies of FINAL FANTASY XV. In response to that, director Hajime Tabata has asked during the launch event in London for players to stop sharing content until the game’s official release.
FINAL FANTASY XV is the latest entry in the legendary JRPG franchise. Its worldwide release will be on November 29 for the PlayStation 4 and XBox One, with a PC port being considered for the near future.
