Although developer Square Enix received mostly praise because of Final Fantasy 15, players still criticized Chapter 13 of the game. They think that its gameplay mechanics became annoying and it turned out as the worst part of the game. One of the reasons behind this is because of its first-time introduction.
Final Fantasy 15 players did not exaggerate when they said that Chapter 13 is bad. Even developers knew this so they decided to fix the chapter and add new and more content for it.
Square Enix will introduce the fixes to Chapter 13 during the Final Fantasy 15 March update. According to GameInformer, Game Producer Haruyoshi Sawatari confirmed at PAX East 2017 that players will begin to enjoy the said chapter after the update.
Sawatari assured the players that the plan to release an update for Chapter 13 will not be cancelled. It will enhance the gameplay experience for the said chapter, making sure that it will be less of a pain to play.
Chapter 13: Original vs. New
In the original Chapter 13, Noctis, the main character of the game, gets separated from his group. During that scenario, players have to go on with themselves and without the powers of their weapon and summoning abilities.
The Chapter 13 update will add a separate route for both Gladio and Ignis, the companions of Noctis. It will allow players to assume the role of Gladio and witness what happened before they finally reunite with Noctis.
Square Enix will provide additional cutscenes that took place when Noctis became separated from the group. According to GamingBolt, players will also know what happened to Emperor Aldercapt and Revis amidst all of the happenings in the game.
Square Enix confirmed that Chapter 13 will only have the supplementary changes planned for the update. Aside from the new contents in the chapter, developers also plan on overhauling the ring magic.
It means that Noctis will have the ability to use the three spells even more powerful with the Ring of the Lucii. Developers even went to the extent as to describing these spells as “super powerful.” These are just some of the other things players can look forward to in the March update of the game.
Square Enix released the game on Nov. 29, 2016, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Although considered as the best Final Fantasy game today, developers are still trying to enhance the gaming experience for all its players. They have yet to announce whether or not they will push for the PC version of the game.
