Final Fantasy XV’s release is just around the corner, and we got new screenshots to keep us waiting. The images give us a closer look at the Ice Queen Shiva, Altissia the city upon the water, and more.
If one Shiva weren’t enough to bring freezing temperatures, how about several?
Altissia, the capital of Accordia, is considered one of the most important places in Final Fantasy XV. It is characterized by its surrounding water, waterfalls, and canals.
Everything about it, from the architecture, canals, and gondolas, was inspired by the beautiful city of Venice, Italy.
Let’s take a look at some other gameplay features.
Your three party members will all get to equip their main weapons plus a sub-weapon. As far as sub-weapons go, Gladiolus uses a sword, Ignis a spear, and Prompto is able to use Machinery. You’ll always get to switch through weapons as you fight enemies accordingly.
Your level and status increases with lodging at night, but abilities are powered up through a system called “Ability Call.” You’ll gain AP (Ability Point) through your adventure from all kinds of actions, and you’ll use them to learn new abilities. The system is split into several parts, so you’ll get to go down paths of your choice to come up with your own original party.
The above image demonstrates Ignis using the “Analyze” ability, which makes it so that you can see enemy HP and resistance.
Final Fantasy XV releases on November 29, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
