Square Enix will soon be holding a closed beta for Final Fantasy XV’s forthcoming multiplayer expansion. Players who’ve purchased the game’s $25 season pass and have either a PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription will be able to sample the Comrades DLC next week from August 3-8.
The Comrades expansion is a cooperative multiplayer mode for the critically acclaimed RPG. Players will be able to create their own avatar, which they can then use to take part in quests with up to three other players. The full expansion will also feature an array of new weapons and sigils with different attack patterns, as well as single-player quests that can be undertaken with three AI party members.
The closed beta offers a limited sampling of the features from the full version. Participants can save up to eight avatars and customize them with “elements limited to the test version,” according to the game’s official website. The closed beta will also feature four different weapon types with “attack patterns that vary from Noctis,” as well as three quests “with up to three legs to each quest.” You can see some screenshots from the expansion below.
