For PC players waiting patiently on an announcement regarding the release of Final Fantasy XV on the platform, it has been an exciting week or so after hearing that not only will the popular game be coming to PC, but will also include mods to allow players plenty of freedom whilst they play.
This is something that director Hajime Tabata has discussed with the development team at length, particularly in one rather grey area revolving around nude mods. This has created some worry among the creative team, who fear that it may encourage content creation that could effectively spoil the title.
Despite the worries, the main focus as far as Tabata is concerned is to not limit players wherever possible. He stated:
“What’s stronger in my mind is the fact that I don’t want to limit people too much – this is part of the culture of gaming these days. These people – it’s a thing they’ve bought, it’s their game now.”
Whilst not necessarily seeing the inclusion a “good thing,” Tabata remains adamant that freedom and as few limitations as possible is what is best going forward, and will be leaving it up to the moral sense of Final Fantasy XV players.
The concerns shown by the team are completely understandable, though it is also admirable that ultimately they want players to have as much freedom as possible whilst playing the game. Given that customers have paid for it, they should be able to do as they please during their experience with it.
