New Final Fantasy XV Video Shows Off-Road Regalia; Platinum Demo to be Discontinued in March

Would you like to ride the Regalia off-road in Final Fantasy XV? Here is a glimpse of what it'll look like,

on February 2, 2017 7:00 AM

During a new Active Time Report broadcast from Tokyo, Final Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata showcased a little treat.

In the video below, you can check out the Regalia modded to go off-road. The intention of this implementation is to let players freely drive around in the world of the game, without having to stick to roads. Yet, it’s still in early development and no information has been provided on when it’ll come (in fact, the video ends when the Regalia gets stuck on a rock due to an environment collision bug).

The video is from a test build running on PC, since it’s not yet ready to run on a console development kit. Keep in mind that this is not a confirmation of a PC version for the game. Final Fantasy XV has always been developed on PC first and then ported to console.

On top of that, Tabata-san also announced that the Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo will be discontinued on March 31st.

After that date, it won’t be available anymore on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Store, So if you want to experience that little side-story from Noctis’ youth, and you still didn’t, you should download it before it goes the way of the dodo.

If you want to read more about the upcoming updates to Final Fantasy XV, you can check out the content of the patch coming on February 21st and watch a dedicated trailer. You can also also  read the content of the Booster Pack DLCs and of the updates coming in March (including the improvement to chapter 13).

Last, but not least, you can enjoy our full report of the Final Fantasy 30th anniversary event hosted in Tokyo a few days ago.
