I've played like 20 or more Jrpgs
This is the first one that has no female playable character

However, the game is shaping up good, recent gameplay looks better than the duscae demo

After the turd that is FFXIII and its sequels, anything will look decent.

So what the f**k is going on over at Square Japan? All their games take an aeon to see completion and then they suck balls anyway. Ok so some time in 2016? Seeing as how they don't want to commit any more than that i'm guessing we should be happy if it sees a holiday 2016 release then...assuming they don't have any more development snafus and have to push it back further.

Square, get your shit together :P

Looks very nice. But too many guys for my taste. The car is 10kg heavier with all that styling gel on their heads.

Is it coming to PC later?

Remember a time when Final Fantasy had good graphics?

Those two cars are really bad!

Complain complain complain. All anyone is doing here. @Megido They already announced that it would be late 2016, and that in March they'd be telling us the date. @BigSonyPony What are you talking about? The graphics look great. @andrewsqual 13 had its moments, 13-2 was really good, 13-3 I didn't like but I know a lot of people did. @yippee123 No clue why you had to bring that up. So what if there isn't a female playable? It's not the end of the world.

Im guessing youll get more sympathy on some final fantasy forum. I think most people around here are sane enough not to be FF-fanboys anymore. The last few installments in the series have sucked. Real bad. Deal with it.

If it was any other franchise you'd be correct, however the creative minds behind FF12, FF13, FF13-2, LR:FF13 are all different to the previous entries.

Fortunately, Nomura, who was one of the masterminds behind FF7, FF8 KH series, The World Ends with You, put years of work into FFvs13. And Tabata, who was made Crisis Core, and Type-0 has taken on FF15. These two made great games and weren't responsible for the last generation's FF.

It looks so...idk..clay-ish...

Looks artistically really good and I really really like the fantasy creatures, love most things Japanese but Jpop isn't one of them wish they had gone for a more anime style and I would also prefer they give them shorter hair and use the processing power saved to fix the LOD pop in issue.

If they can optimise the visuals to get LoD under control and improve IQ a great deal, this could be the best looking open world game in my opinion. Graphically it is very ambitious but seems to be running on 'low' settings at the moment. For instance, the vegetation on the October 2014 video looked incredible, but they have dialed it back since then. Hopefully they can get this polished up, because FF games have pretty much always had super polished visuals.

Eventually. FF Type-0 wasn't mentioned and it exchanged dates with lightning returns, which also still isn't out yet on steam. They'll probably also list some other titles for steam before FFXV is next.


Square Enix though has problems with pc gaming and quality ports, well their Eastern division anyways. Eidos has 25 years into pc gaming. Hitman and Deus Ex are one of their popular pc franchises. The whole eastern side of Square has had too much trouble with gaming in general actually, not just pc.

FFXV will also be using both luminous engine and Just Cause 3's. The luminous engine has just been revealing slowly it's too difficult to work with. After FFXV launches who knows what they'll do with the engine. They already confirmed KH3 and FFVII remake won't be using luminous engine.

I'm seriously shaking my head at these "gameplay" trailers. 90% of the time they focus on the stupid car. Nothing about that looks interesting. It's a graphics demonstration and nothing else. This game is evolving so slowly it's painful.

Must be a joke.

I'm not saying the game is bad
I just haven't played a jrpg without female
So I will get used to it

Ok, tell you a truth, in Japan & Asian, quite some people will choose a game because of the female characters, and I am one of them
So yes, that's a big deal

Oh look, more looking around. Where's the actual gameplay? Can't believe how uninteresting this looks.

This video seems pretty useless lol. But the game gfx are great. I am excited for this game and have never played a FF game before:

Kind of seems like a "don't cancel your preorder" more than anything else. The game lead just stated the game is about 65% done or so.

Backstreet's back alright!

About the game

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] so cool (23 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog hellblade and ryse both had way more basic combat that literally just centered around weak and strong attacks. there was nothing else there to play around with. (26 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and then you have the boy, who distracts, staggers and sets you up for more volleys. now compare that to hellblade or ryse...and you honestly can't see the difference? (29 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog then you've got the elements associated with the axe itself, where you can freeze enemies (and i assume other elements will be introduced later too) and do powered up elemental attacks (30 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog there seem to be a decent depth to the combat in god of war. with staggers, shield barges, slow mo air juggles, grabs, axe throws, and standard hacking. (31 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: if you think that looks like ryse then i really don't know what to tell you. doesnt look anything like ryse or hellblade to me outside of a camera angle. (33 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @alimokrane: agree, if the enemy variety is there as well it could be an awesome combat system, especially for an over the shoulder camera game. Camera does zoom out for larger fights btw (1 Hour ago)
