Final Fantasy XV July Update: What’s New?

Final Fantasy XV

Square Enix

Final Fantasy XV received yet another free update today which adds even more things to do into the game. Despite the game coming out last year, the support for it is still rolling in, which is great news for players.

This month’s update, aptly titled the July update, adds a few new things into the game for players to enjoy, with the biggest of them being the Magitek Exosuits. These suits will give players 30 minutes of invincibility a day for their whole party, which certainly makes taking on hordes of enemies much easier. You can choose to keep wearing the suit if you want once the invincibility wears off.

We’re also seeing the return of the Moogle Chocobo Carnival with this update. To participate in this, you’ll need the FFXV Holiday Pack, either the free version or the one included with the Season Pass for Final Fantasy XV.

Here’s the complete list of changes coming with this update:

  • New Magitek Exosuits – granting 30 minutes of invincibility per day for Noctis, Gladio, Prompto and Ignis to help players take on the dangerous creatures of Eos. Once invincibility has worn off, players can continue to wear the exosuits in-game.
  • A new quest, “O Partner, My Partner” – can be accepted from the Meldacio Hunter HQ after the player has completed Chapter 8.
  • A new “Cross Chain” collaboration system – allows players to severely damage strong, defensive enemies by increasing the number of linked attacks. The Cross Chain system is available once players acquire the two Royal Arms: the Sword of the Wise and Axe of the Conqueror
  • Return of the beloved Moogle Chocobo™ Carnival – from July 31 to late September, players of all levels can once again journey to Altissia for limited-time-only mini-games, Chocobo water races and special Moogle Chocobo menu items at the Square Enix® Café*.

Final Fantasy XV is available now for Xbox One and PS4. Be on the lookout for the Comrades beta in August. This new multiplayer beta will be available to players who have purchased the title’s Season Pass.
