Final Fantasy 15 receiving Assassin's Creed DLC, gamescom post reveals

Posted August 25, 2017

The dev teams from Final Fantasy XV and Assassin's Creed Origins have unveiled a collaboration whereby the two games "pay homage to each other's gaming universes". It was there that the teams behind Assassin's Creed and Final Fantasy expressed respect and appreciation for each other's work.

If you've obtained the Dream Egg from the Moogle Chocobo Carnival event, you'll be given a special Assassin outfit for Noctis modeled after Altair's robes from the first Assassin's Creed. The Assassin's Festival will have some additional themed items and features, including another outfit from Assassin's Creed, along with abilities that enable Noctis to explore more like an Assassin and even use some of the Assassins' more well-known abilities.

As detailed by the Ubi Blog, the collaboration came about after an informal meeting almost three years ago between the Assassin's Creed and Final Fantasy development teams.

The new downloadable content is the first Final Fantasy XV content pack to feature crossover content from another video games franchise.

In addition to two sets of Assassin's Creed clothing, players will also have a story to go through as they return once again to the town of Lestallum. The pack features content from the Assassins Creed franchise.

The free Assassin's Festival DLC will be released for Final Fantasy XV on the very next day.

There's no word yet whether Assassin's Creed Origins will receive any themed Final Fantasy DLC as of yet. The upcoming Assassin's Festival DLC also adds new abilities that allow Noctis to move and behave like an Assassin, down to some of the series' abilities. I hope the event won't be completely gone by January and still be downloadable and playable in some form on PC or at least on console after that time passes, because I may not have time to get around to the game by then.

At Gamescom, Final Fantasy XV's director told IGN that the recently announced mobile version of the game has "a chance" of coming to the Nintendo Switch.
