Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition announced, launches alongside Windows Edition on Mar 6

This supposed to be how the game SHOULD look and play like at launch.

How much do you get when you trade in the old version?

Square Enix has announced Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which will launch alongside Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition for Steam, Origin, and Windows 10 on March 6 for $49.99.

Both Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition and Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition feature the base game and over 20 game add-ons / downloadable content, as well as new features including an expanded map of Insomnia with new enemies and side quests, and a first-person camera mode.

Here is the full list of features, via Square Enix:

  • A new accessory that can activate the new action “Armiger Unleashed” – players will be able to unleash powerful attacks while the Armiger is summoned. After collecting all of the royal arms, players will be able to find an accessory in an unidentified part of the world, enabling access to Armiger Unleashed.
  • A new first-person camera mode, allowing players to experience the game from Noctis’ perspective.
  • More than a dozen pieces of downloadable content including weapons, Regalia car skins and item sets
