Final Fantasy XV has been on the tongues of gamers a lot recently. Which isn’t surprising as the game continues to be an amazing RPG experience that everyone wants to play. But during Gamescom 2017, Square Enix seems to want to make it so literally everyone can play it. They revealed a mobile version of the game called the Pocket Edition, they’re teasing the game for the Nintendo Switch, and of course, there’s a PC version of the game coming soon as well. And for those PC gamers, a big fan request will be granted.
At Gamescom, Rock, Paper, Shotgun talked with game director Hajime Tabata about the PC version of Final Fantasy XV, and asked what players can expect from it. And he was very quick to answer:
““I think one of the biggest things [PC] players can expect is mod support.”
What’s interesting about this is that apparently Tabata has thought about doing mods in the game for a while, so when the PC version came to be, he made sure it would happen. Now, Square Enix has not fully fleshed out their modding policy just yet, but he really wants to do it, and it would be a surprise if it didn’t happen. In fact, Tabata promised details “around autumn time.”
The beautiful thing about mods is their limitless potential. Mods allow players to make just about anything and insert it into the game as if it was there from day one. This is what has made games on PC like Skyrim and Fallout 3 & 4 so much fun, because the mods are endless.
It’s not hard to picture some things that gamers could do in Final Fantasy XV if given the chance to mod. So we’ll just have to see if and when this really does happen. Trust us, we have fingers crossed.
