Final Fantasy XV Comrades mode to get standalone release

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

Four new Episodes are also slated for 2019.

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XV’s multiplayer Comrades mode will launch as a standalone release this summer, with four new story Episodes coming in 2019.

The news came during a panel at PAX East in which details of further updates to the mode were also revealed. Comrades will be getting raid bosses as well as battle challenges to test players further.

There aren’t any details regarding the standalone version’s features or pricing, but we can expect it to at least come at a significant markdown from the full game.

Comrades launched last year in November after a few months of delay. The multiplayer mode allows the creation of custom characters and focuses on co-operative monster bashing.

As well as the standalone mode, four new Episodes will be coming to the game in 2019 centred on Ardyn, Aranea, Lunafreya and Noctis.

Episode 1: Ardyn - The Conflict of the sage follows the sage in his conflict with the Astrals. Episode Side Story: Areana - The Beginning of the End shows the Starscourge from Niflheim's perspective. Episode 2: Lunafreya - The Choice of Freedom follows Luna's fate as she attempts to save the Lucian King. Episode 3: Noctis - The Final Strike concludes the protagonist's journey as he takes on his final battle for hte future of his people.

Final Fantasy XV is available on PlayStation 4 and PC.
