Final Fantasy XV Comrades – Finally Playing with Friends

Who among us hasn’t played Final Fantasy XV and thought to themselves: “I sure wish I could experience this game with friends”? Well, now you have the chance to see how it feels. All PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners (that also have the appropriate service subscription) can head into the world of FFXV with several friends. This is a feature that fans have been clamoring for for a long time. Ever since Hajime Tabata announced it during Paris Game Week, in fact.

Now, to be fair, this run from August 3rd to August 8th is just a beta trial. Many of the basic features will be present, but some will be missing. Noctis, Prompto, Gladio and Ignis are absent from the trial version. Customization options will be limited, as will the choice of weapons. While you will be able to communicate with other players, you’ll have to wait for the full version for some features, such as customized chat messages.

Of course, there’s plenty of stuff that you can do in the FFXV Comrades beta. There’s several quests you can complete, items to earn, meals to cook, etc. The amount of customization, while not complete, is still impressive. And, of course, there’s the lure of forming your own party and exploring the world with your friends.

However, finding your friends can prove to be a problem. If you’re having trouble with this, check out our FFXV Comrades How to Play with Friends guide.
