Producer of Final Fantasy 16, Naoki Yoshida, has confirmed that a free update will launch for the game today. Alongside this, Yoshida also announced that two paid DLC instalments for Final Fantasy 16 were on the way and that the PC version of the game is currently in development, with more information to be made available later down the line.

Taking to a video message, Yoshida noted that the free update will introduce two new features. The first will allow you to customise the appearance of Clive’s weapon without losing the stats of the weapon you’re currently using. Really like the look of the starting weapon? Well, now you can have it still look like that throughout the entire game while adding the combat stats of other weapons you acquire on your journey. Equally, this update is set to add an alternative outfit for Clive, Jill, Torgal, Ambrosia, and Joshua.

Yoshida confirmed that a number of minor changes would also be coming in this new update such as “new controller layouts, and more”.

Final Fantasy 16 is also set to receive “two instalments of paid DLC” down the line as Yoshida acknowledged players’ desire to learn more about Valisthea’s story and its inhabitants.

While Final Fantasy 16 is currently a PlayStation 5 exclusive, Yoshida noted that there was a consistent outcry for a PC version of the game. He confirmed that Final Fantasy 16 on PC is currently in development. Yoshida signed off the video message saying he hopes to give players “more information on both the upcoming DLC and the PC version before the end of the year, so please stay tuned.”

Our Final Fantasy 16 review noted, “At its peak, Final Fantasy 16 is a dark, brooding fantasy epic propelled by a rich, circuitous narrative of feuding kingdoms and personal revenge gone awry, one punctuated by engrossing set pieces unfolding in a gorgeous, sharply realised world.”
