FFXV takes place in the war-torn world of Eos and follows the story of Noctis, an exiled prince on an epic quest to retake his lands and crown.
Final Fantasy XV's 101 trailer gives an overview of the story, the game's strategic action combat and much more.
Final Fantasy XV has been in development for over 10 years, originally as a spin-off for Final Fantasy XIII. The project has since been massively expanded, delayed, and reworked, producing the grand open-world adventure Square Enix hopes will rekindle mainstream interest in the aging franchise.
Square Enix appears to have taken criticisms of Final Fantasy XIII's linearity to heart, creating a huge and dynamic open-world complete with masses of side quests, optional objectives, mini-games and more. Whether that open world is filled with genuinely compelling content or just copy and pasted MMO-style fetch quests remains to be seen, but the trailer gives me some optimism as a long-time fan.
Final Fantasy XV has also developed its combat using significant amounts of user feedback, having shipped multiple demos. The combat sits somewhere between pure action RPGs like The Witcher 3 and something more tactical, like Dragon Age Inquisition. You can pause battles to issue commands to your squad, but also play FFXV like a semi-hack and slash with heavy RPG progression and customization.
Will it live up to ten years of expectations? We'll find out when the game launches on November 29th, 2016 for Xbox One and PS4.
