In the latest Active Time Event Hajime Tabata, the game director for Final Fantasy XV, presented everyone with all of the feedback from Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae. Episode Duscae is a stand alone demo showing off some of Final Fantasy XV that was released as a part of the preorder bonus for people who purchased the recently released Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.

After the release of Episode Duscae many users were polled so that Square Enix could get feedback to see what worked and what didn't. They found that the average score was 8.3, getting an 8.6 from NA, an 8.0 in Japan and an 8.3 from Europe.

As well as the feedback from the online questionnaire Tabata also announced that Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae 2.0 will launch in early June as an update to the already released demo. This update will include new improvements such as better targeting and camera system, improved combat and adds in dodge rolls. There is word that the team is also trying to figure out how to improve frame rate further through the adaptation of the way that objects are rendered but this will not be in the new version.


One large inclusion for Episode Duscae 2.0 is Individual Quests, these are quests where you only travel with one team member at a time. This has also been worked into non-specific quests where you can decide at camp in the morning who is going to do what allowing you to control a group of one, two or three while the other member or members can be doing their own thing.

UPDATE: If you would like to watch the whole video detailing all of the feedback and the changes that are going to be implemented then you can watch it below:
