Demoes rarely get updated, but that might not the case with the demo for Final Fantasy XV. Siliconera reports that game director Hajime Tabata and Square Enix are planning on releasing an “Episode Duscae version 2.0″ that addresses fans’ concerns about the demo.
This news comes from the latest Active Time Report, which you can watch below:
In the hour long video, Tabata tackles the top 15 most common complaints about the demo head-on. Eurogamer has transcribed and summarized the key points. Tabata answers questions about the faulty lock-in system, the wonky camera, unbalanced combat, and more.
Tabata’s responses range from small fixes (like adding a mini-map) all the way to the demo’s complete lack of anti-aliasing. The Final Fantasy XV team has even re-recorded some of Noctis’ dialogue after hearing his lines in Episode Duscae.
Updating demoes is a largely unprecedented practice, so distribution of Episode Duscae version 2.0 isn’t a guarantee quite yet. Square Enix is still working with both Sony and Microsoft to make it happen. Otherwise, the updated demo will make rounds on the event circuit.
Final Fantasy XV is being developed for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. There is no release date yet and it seems like the team is still making big changes. The game is very much a work in progress, but at least Tabata’s going out of his way to listen to the fans.
