Just when you thought the news couldn't stop flowing for Final Fantasy XV free DLC in the form of the Assassin's Festival. This will be free DLC that will allow any player to travel to the town of Lestallum and take part in the festivities. This event will begin on the 31st of August and there is no word as to whether it will be a one day event or if it will last multiple days.
This collaboration first started being dreamed up three years ago during TGS when Assassin's Creed and Final Fantasy XV development teams met and shared admiration of the projects that each team had undertaken. On this topic Ashraf Ismail, game director at Ubisoft Montreal had the following to say on the upcoming collaboration:
This collaboration is the result of being huge fans, there’s a lot of respect between the two teams and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the opportunity to pay homage to each other’s work.In terms of content available to those who participate in the Assassin's Festival in Lestallum players will be able to gain themed items and even an outfit from Assassin's Creed that will allow Noctis to explore the world of Eos more like an assassin and even use some abilities such as the Leap of Faith. As an added bonus those players who took part in the Moogle Chocobo Carnival and gained the Dream Egg will get another set of Assassin's robes for free the day before the festival starts so that you can roll up in style.
There is no word as of yet if there will be some kind of Final Fantasy XV themed event or items included in Assassin's Creed: Origins which is releasing on October 27th, 2017.
