Final Fantasy XV at Gamescom Will Have Lots of Stage Shows, Q&As, Cosplay Show and Active Time Report

on July 24, 2015 7:00 PM

Today Square Enix Europe announced with a press release that Final Fantasy XV will appear in full force at Gamescom, even if some of the content might not be exactly new for those that are already playing the Episode Duscae demo.

The game will be featured at booth B31/B41 in Hall 9, and the Active Time Report with Game Director Hajime Tabata will be livestreamed on the Square Enix Presents Twitch channel.

Every day on the Final Fantasy XV Stage presents a different YouTube or Twitch personality doing a “Let’s Play” of Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae Version 2.0 with live commentary for the audience.

Attendees will be able to meet real Final Fantasy experts and top stars at the Square Enix Stand, like Mit Gronkh, the PietSmiet team, Gregor of Rocketbeans TV, and HoneyballLP and Nino of NinotakuTV.

Additionally, every day the Final Fantasy XV development team will answer fan questions, give out goodies, and present the game live on stage from Thursday to Saturday. Here, visitors will also have the chance to be selected as one of the lucky few to try Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae Version 2.0 at one of the demo stations.

Right at the end of the first day, there is also a special highlight for trade attendees and Wildcard Holders: the Final Fantasy XV development team will present an exclusive “Active Time Report” live streamed directly from Gamescom. The one-hour live stream on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. [Noon EDT, 9 AM PDT] promises brand new insight into the highly anticipated RPG with exclusive information. Fans and visitors are welcome.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
