Square Enix showed off a new demo of Final Fantasy XV during tonight’s TGS stage events, showcasing a technical demo of sorts of the cityscape shown in last year’s reveal trailer. Hajime Tabata, now sole director of the title, also took some time to share some information about the upcoming Duscae demo packaged with Final Fantasy Type-0.
According to him, Duscae is the name of a location in the game. The length of the demo will be about one hours worth, but players can probably play up to 3 or 4 hours through the game’s overworld and dungeon that will be included. As seen in the trailer, you’ll be able to drive a car around – and maybe even chocobos – or, if you’d rather, one of Noctis’ friends can take over the wheel as well. The demo will feature a variety of enemies, but no boss battles however, as those will be quite a big deal in the final game. That adamantoise? You’ll be able to fight him but it will take some time to bring him down.
Moving on, Tabata’s new tech demo titled “Overture” detailed some of XV’s dynamic weather, including places that don’t get wet under objects even when it rains. Using some of the engine tools, Tabata played around a bit with the game’s warp mechanics before finally bringing in a bunch of enemies to show working combat including party member and weapon switching. For example, by switching over to Ignis the player can use dual swords and even a Fire ability.
In closing, Tabata confirmed a few things: first is that visuals are still being fine-tuned. Secondly, the team plans on showing the game more often – starting with Jump Festa in December. And finally, because time for this presentation was so short, expect to see even more of it on Square Enix Presents in the near future.
