If you have the Season Pass of Final Fantasy XV, you may want to get a headstart on the pre-download of the beta of the Final Fantasy XV multiplayer expansion Comrades, because it’s a big one.
The beta will start on August 3rd, but the download has just been made available on the North American PlayStation Store and on the Xbox Store. Keep in mind that you need to have the Season Pass purchased in order to have access to the test.
It’s definitely a large download, and will require a whopping 12.8 gigabytes of your bandwidth on PS4, and 13.86 gigabytes on Xbox One. Incidentally, it goes on a separate tile on your PS4 desktop, instead of being included within Final Fantasy XV‘s own shortcut.

Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One, and the development team is continuing to push the game with free updates (version 1.13 was released just today) and DLC, including the recently-launched Episode Prompto, and Episode Ignis, that will come in December. Major announcements are also expected to come at Gamescom in August.
Interestingly, they’re also looking beyond the current technology, and they gave a glimpse on their new real-time rendering technology at Siggraph in Los Angeles.
