Final Fantasy XV New Active Time Report Showcases New Beautiful Battle Footage, Next Event Will Be At Gamescom


Final Fantasy XV was one of the most anticipated titles getting shown at this year's E3, but with the game being very close to release, Square Enix cannot afford to stop talking about it. Earlier today, a new Active Time report has been streamed for Japanese players, and director Hajime Tabata took the time to talk more about some aspects of the game.

Today's Final Fantasy XV Active Time Report featured plenty of new gameplay footage, including DLC weapons footage and more. Other than showing new gameplay, director Hajime Tabata also talked about the other projects tied to Final Fantasy XV, next events, which will be at Gamescom in August, the game's day one patch, and the possibility of the game's final build being available during the Tokyo Game Show, which will be held a few days before the game's release.
