Final Fantasy XV Will Have A Pause Mode

Good news for old-school Final Fantasy fans who miss turn-based combat: FFXV will offer an option called Wait Mode, letting you freeze time and pick attacks at your own leisure.


Director Hajima Tabata announced the mode during a livestream today, and it should make for welcome news to anyone who likes a slower pace in their RPGs. Hopefully it works well.

I’ll have more on FFXV—including an interview with Tabata—later this week.



Does it have a non-floaty mode where it no longer feels like Kingdom Hearts with a full half-second of input lag?
