Final Fantasy XV will have an online multiplayer mode, the game’s team announced today at Paris Games Week.


Co-op multiplayer DLC will be available for the game after its November 29th release. The mode is a part of FFXV’s season pass, announced in August, which will cost $25 and offer six DLC packs total. The three other DLC packs teased today will make party members Gladio, Ignis and Prompto playable. The online co-op mode, released after each characters’ episode, will allow up to four players to battle as Gladio, Ignis, Prompto or Noctis.

It’s a radical move for a franchise whose bread-and-butter is single-player, but not a shocking one considering the success of the MMORPG FFXIV.

Along with the announcement, FFXV’s team dropped a spectacular cinematic CG trailer called “Omen.” The trailer depicts an “‘omen’ for Noctis’ father, King Regis, of a catastrophic future that must be avoided,” the trailer’s description reads.

Details about the co-op mode’s specific gameplay are sparse. We will update this post with new information as it becomes available.

Does anyone else get the feeling that FF XV is either going to totally awesome or a trainwreck?
