Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae 2.0 Announced; Square Enix Responds to Blunt Feedback

on April 28, 2015 2:26 AM

During the latest Active Time Event broadcast, Final Fantasy XV Game Director Hajime Tabata shared some really blunt (and at times hilarious) feedback about the Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae demo.

Showing quite a a degree of sportmanship, he proceeded to address all the complaints by the users, also displaying graphs with the reactions to the demo (which you can see at the bottom of the post), polled from an internet-based survey among those that purchased Type-0 HD.

The global score average for the demo was 8.3, the score in North America was 8.6, Japan proved more demanding, with an 8.0, while European gamers were on the middle ground with 8.3.

On top of the statistics and the answers to the feedback, that you can check out in the video below, Tabata-san also announced Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae 2.0, an update to the already released demo that will launch in May (only for those that already have it, of course) and will include several improvements, like a better targeting and camera system, an improved combat system and the addition of dodge rolls.

The team is also re-assessing how data is handled and how objects are rendered in order to improve frame rate, but Tabata-san is not sure that the changes will be implemented in time for the new version of the demo.
