101 Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae 2.0 PS4 Screenshots Show New Features, Enormous Catoblepas

on June 9, 2015 2:37 PM

Today Square Enix released the 2.0 version of Final Fantasy XV‘s demo Episode Duscae, and if you’re not among those that purchased Type-0 to get your hands on the demo, you’re probably curious to see what changed.

The answer is “quite a lot,” but in order to get a good view on the changes, a screenshot is better than a thousand words, and 101 screenshots are even better.

In the gallery at the bottom of the post you can see the new “Individual quests” that will come up randomly when camping, and that will allow Noctis to go on a “tour” with one of his companions, the revised combat, the cooperation attacks, and a much closer look to the massive catoblepas than what we’re used to. Just be aware that there could be mild spoilers among the screenshots.

Also, if you want to compare the graphics between the two version, here are three pairs of screenshots. Version 2.0 is on top, while the old version 1.1 is below it in each pairing.

There aren’t many noticeable changes, but the cobblestone texture in Wiz Chocobo Outpost show a definite improvement in definition. It’s likely that there are other subtle changes like that scattered around the demo.

Incidentally, if you want to be able to fight a catoblepas, you’ll need to complete the individual quest “A Duscaen Delicacy” with Prompto. That will prompt (yes, I made a pun) one of the catoblepas to walk out of the lake, allowing Noctis and his party to attack it. Just be aware that it’s massively powerful, and has stomp and neck swipe attacks that will instantly destroy your group if you’re not careful, and if your level is too low.
