Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition‘s new August update has arrived, and with it the ability to swap out a custom avatar in Noctis’s place. The character creation menu featured in the Comrades multiplayer expansion makes an appearance, as well as other online features that include sharing photos and placing treasure for other players to find. Limited time treasure is also available to collect.

Here are the official patch notes from Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition’s official Steam page:

• You can like photos that have been shared on the map.
• You can place treasure on the field map for other players to enjoy.
• You can now collect treasure that has been placed by other players.
• Limited-time treasure is now available.
• An “Online” option has been added to the Main Menu.

• Various other bugs have been fixed.

We check it out in the video below:

    Story updates?

  • stevenm281

    none… and no updates to the console versions since Royal in March.

  • MajoraMan28

    This is the lamest update to the game, tbh

  • stevenm281

    I agree, it totally disrespect Noctis’ importance to the story, he is the Chosen King for fuck sake. Furthermore, if Noctis becomes a girl then, who’s his voice actress?

    If anything, the created characters should be a 5th party member.

    Tabata has been making a joke of this mainline title.

    “Oh, there’s a mod that lets you change Noctis’s appearance to that of your avatar from Comrades? Fine, we’ll do our own version of the mod and make it OFFICIAL.”

  • Patrick Bateman

    ….Yeah they should stop wasting money on this game and move on already lol.

  • Pleasance13

    So, this feature will not be coming to consoles?

  • •december

    The fandoms & nerd community actually loves this kind of thing – no one is moving on from this game until 2019 DLC

  • •december

    lol then back to sleep i go

  • Bobby/Godless

    Game’s beaten already. Whats the problem?

  • King Zeus

    Oh boy, am I tired of this game already.

  • •december

    Zeus, its been a year and a half lol
    even us fans have been fed up since Episode Ignis last December

  • sparkledust

    There was a small update on PS4 in July.

  • JohnCaseyCB

    Yeah, you should stop complaining about this game and move on already lol.

  • JohnCaseyCB

    There is no reason why this can’t be on consoles…

  • JohnCaseyCB

    I’m tired of people tired of this game already, but still not tired enough to complain two years in.

  • Patrick Bateman

    lmao hit a nerve did I?

  • Patrick Bateman

    I’m tired of fanboys finding every excuse in the book to defend this incomplete, money grab, sad excuse of a Final Fantasy.

  • JohnCaseyCB

    Did you seriously just admit that you’re doing nothing but trolling and flaming at this point? Well! There’s a cute little thing called “Blocking” for your species.

  • Patrick Bateman

    Nope, just calling it as i see it. You’re clearly triggered because not everyone is in love with this game or going to praise every single piece of content they crap out.

  • stevenm281

    – Implementation of ability to change title background after completing EPISODE IGNIS

    – Introduction of new outfit as a reward for completing EPISODE IGNIS

    – Addition of two new cookbooks (available for purchase in Altissia)

    – Adjustment of loading screen tips

    – Various bug fixes

    Not really what I consider an “update”, they should have waited and add this when adding something considerable.

    But hey, that’s just me nitpicking.

  • sparkledust

    Then you should have qualified what you meant by no updates, since clearly you meant no updates that were good enough for you.

    My good friend from Abilene, 6 months ago quit working as a bartender at the local coffee room, to work online for Flowserve in Cedar Rapids as yahoo researcher. He is now earning $9544 a month and few weeks ago paid for a new Lexus LS and went on a two weeks holiday with his wife and two kids. Amazing thing is that he was able to achieve this working part time here! Here’s where he applied… https://skyboot.tumblr.com?10018
