Spectacular Final Fantasy XV Direct Feed Screenshots Show Red Eyed Noctis, Night and Beautiful Graphics

Square Enix just released a new batch of screenshots of Final Fantasy XV‘s demo Episode Duscae, and they’re absolutely beautiful.

We actually saw them in last week’s Famitsu scans, but finally we can enjoy them in all their direct feed glory.

With the screenshots, also came a few bits of accompanying information:

With the day and night cycle, the lights of establishments like the gas station portrayed below will turn on, illuminating the scene beautifully. While camping it’s possible to level up, cook food that grants bonu effects, and even take care of different settings like equipped weapons. In addition, Noctis will have a chance to  have a chat with the rest of the party.

The demo will include a vast map, including grasslands and dark caves. There will also be moments in which Noctis’ eyes will glow red, but the circumstances causing this effect are still a mystery.

There will be a large number of weapons in the demo, each with its own special abilities, and familiar skills like “Jump” will make a comeback.

During the night, monsters that inhabit the caves will venture outside. Those are much more dangerous than the ones found during the day, and will require the cooperation of Noctis’ companions.

While the demo will include a lot of exploration, it’ll be possible to perform various missions that will lead to different locations. There’s also a bounty hunt to kill a Behemoth, which is extremely powerful.

You can check them all out in the gallery below.
