I think most people know about this but here’s a quick recap news. Recently announced, the popular DC fighting game Injustice 2 has revealed another season pack for the game and it will be third. It’s revealed that Atom and Enchantress will participating in the game; however, this is not the big news stirring online. Also joining the game is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Based on what we can assume, players will be able to play as all four turtles and they will be able fight the DC characters, heroes and villains. These are not the characters from a different franchise crossing over in this game. Recently, Raiden from the Mortal Kombat series is in the game as well as Dark Horse comic character Hellboy.

Tekken 7

Tekken 7 will not only be getting Akuma from Capcom Street Fighter but apparently, someone from Square Enix. Final Fantasy XV hero Noctis Lucis Caelum will be joining Tekken 7! Based on the reveal trailer, Noctis will be fighting with his traditional Engine Blade along with his magic. His character will be playable and players will able to unlock arenas from the game such as fighting Hammerhead Repair Shop.

This is not the first time Noctis has encounter a crossover moment. Final Fantasy XV has crossover with Assassin’s Creed Origins with a festival, NieR: Automata with an exclusive Engine Blade weapon, and even Xbox exclusive Forza Horizon 3 with the Regalia.

Both these exclusive characters will be available to play in 2018 during the late winter.

Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades Closed Beta Quick Impressions

As a way to bring hype and attention to the upcoming expansion pack to the popular Final Fantasy XV game and it’s official online mode, I will be talking about my impression to the Closed Beta to Comrades. I am sorry that this is really late and I will try not to waste any time. This impression will be really fast and brief!

In the beginning, in order to get the beta, players must own a copy of Final Fantasy XV, a PS+ or Xbox Live account and got the season pass. Once you get the season pass, players will be gifted to try out the early stages to Comrades. When you first start the game, you are given the choice to be either man or woman; you can later customize your fashion. Once you get done, you will be placed in a server and you will be in a hub where you can interact with the characters and even train your skills. The weapons you get is a fast katana, shuikens, poles and daggers. Once you are ready to play, you go talk to Cor or someone who is there and start the mission. The missions usually involves with either killing a specific Daemon or protecting Cindy on a escort mission.

The Positives

I think it’s pretty cool that Square Enix is adding this new feature to the game. In the past, they have done online games such as Final Fantasy XI and XIV, so they are not new to this. For a beta game, this game wasn’t too difficult to understand. The controls feel exactly like Noctis from the main game and I like being able to still switch weapons. It’s also nice to interact with the side characters like Cindy and Cor and even feel part of the Kingsglaive.

The Negatives

As a beta, I understand things were going to be limited. I didn’t really much of this because the servers in this game wasn’t the best. There was times the game couldn’t find any open lobbies or a strong server and it made me feel like I wasted my time downloading a beta. Like most online complications, the game’s connection with players can have bugs such as lags or delays.

Overall

For being an early stage, this expansion game is pretty well done. The gameplay is no different than playing the main game. I think what’s fun is that you can have players working together and fight as one like game and movie. I also think that once the game is fully finished and polished for the full game, the complications won’t be present as often. I am looking forward to unlocking content for my character and even curious about the story. In my opinion, if you have Final Fantasy XV and you like the game, I would recommend it if you are hyped to play online. I might be jumping into conclusions since this was a beta. Did you play the beta? What is your opinion?

Just a reminder, Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades is expected to be released on November 15th for Xbox One and PS4. If players have the season pass, they will be able to play for free. Based on the recent trailer, the story of online will take place during 10 years where Noctis disappeared into the Crystal. With Noctis sudden disappearance, the rest of the surviving Lucians and Kingsglaive must stand together and fight the Daemons wandering Eos. Along the way, players will be able to encounter Noctis’s friends and they can work together and save Eos in the darkness.

Feel free to buy me a cup of coffee if you feel obliged to show more support!
