During a panel at PAX East today, Square Enix announced a character creator, mod support, a level editor, and more coming to Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition this year.
The character creator previously available in the Comrades multiplayer mode will now be able to be used in the main campaign of Windows Edition, allowing players to change the appearance of Noctis.
In addition, Windows Edition will also receive mod support this Spring, allowing players to upload creations to Steam Workshop, starting with outfits and weapons.
Later this year in Fall, Square Enix will also release a level editor for Windows Edition, allowing players to customize areas and add enemies, as well as create simple quests, like initiating events or assigning certain actions when players interact with an object. Examples of creations shown during the panel included custom Chocobo races as well as a golf mini-game.
These updates are expected to be rolled out before the end of the year. In smaller news for Windows Edition, Square Enix also announced that players will also be able to hide “User Treasure” throughout the world of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition, hiding items anywhere in the world for other players to find. The longer it takes for the item to be discovered, the better the item will become.
