Following fan outcry to return to series routes with an open-world for the upcoming Final Fantasy XV, Director Hajime Tabata has told Famitsu, via Siliconera, that it will be half open-world and half linear.
There will be 15 chapters to Final Fantasy XV with the renowned Famitsu getting to play to chapter 3. According to Tabata chapter 3 is about 15% or so through the game. What wasn’t stated was whether or not different areas would be closed off after completing them or whether second half areas will have open-world aspects or not.
Final Fantasy XV will be available on 29th of November for Xbox One and Playstation 4. Check out the latest gameplay trailer below, featuring “Wait Mode.”
