Square Enix detailed Final Fantasy XV’s day one patch.

In the end Final Fantasy XV has a day one patch weighing in at around 7GB on PlayStation 4 going by screenshots posted from early copies. Final Fantasy XV’s update has been dubbed the “Crown” update and has been what the team worked on after the game went Gold. Some of the additions below are pretty shocking because they should have been in the game when it went Gold in the first place like the Wait Mode.

Here’s what the patch adds:

Camera improvements will make it easier to track action going on in narrow areas.

The new “Wait Mode” function (makes it so the game automatically waits when you stop command inputs) will get an ability tree for more in-depth strategic elements.

A “Monster Whistle” that can be used to call out monsters will be added.

New event scenes from Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV and “Omen” trailer will be added.

Recipes and fish varieties, as well as a gallery, will be added for players who enjoy collecting items.

Social network function will be added, allowing players to upload Prompto’s photographs to Facebook and Twitter.

Hajime Tabata also had a message for fans about spoilers and early release copies of Final Fantasy XV:

“We are nearing the release date of November 29. I’m wishing from the bottom of my heart that everyone will get to enjoy the game with a fresh new feeling. However, we’ve confirmed that some packages of Final Fantasy XV have been released around some parts of the world, with gameplay videos being uploaded to the Internet. This may be inevitable due to regional circumstances, but it’s something we regret very much.”

“It’s our big goal to have everyone enjoy the story of Final Fantasy XV and discover its surprises through the simultaneous global release. There are likely other spoiler videos and such circulating out there that we had not expected, so for those of you looking forward to Final Fantasy XV, we hope that you’ll be careful.”

“We are doing everything we can to prevent the circulation of the spoiler videos. For those of you that received the game earlier, please keep those who’ve waited a long time for the game in consideration. In order to meet the best possible release date with everybody, we ask for your understanding and cooperation.”

Final Fantasy XV is set to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 29.

Thanks, Siliconera.
