Square Enix has revealed the full list of changes set to go live with Final Fantasy XV‘s “Crown Update” – the game’s hefty day one patch. A new post on the official site has all the details:

Battle

  • Added actions inspired by the “Omen” trailer produced by Digic Pictures to the game:
    – “Shift (Warp) Drop Kick” (When daggers are equipped).
    – “Backward Shift (Warp) Magic” (Elemental Magic Activation within a short distance).
  • Below are examples of Wait Mode-exclusive abilities added to Ability Call to improve the Wait Mode experience:
    – Libra Speed Increase
    By using Libra you can obtain information more quickly.
    – Wait Gauge Recovery
    The Wait Gauge will recover upon defeating an enemy.
    – Surprise Attack Shift Break
    When Shift Breaking to an enemy that isn’t targeting you it’s easy to destroy the targeted part.
    – Final Blow Shift Break
    When Shift Breaking to an enemy with less than half HP, the damage multiplier will increase.
  • Additional battle screen effects added to make it easier for players to understand their HP status:
    – When HP is less than 25%, the whole screen will be covered by a light red filter.

    – The Enemy Whistle will be available to use after downloading the patch. You can call monsters but they won’t always appear.
