Final Fantasy 15 will have two different battle modes

Final Fantasy 15 will include two individual battle modes, Square Enix confirmed on the official forums.

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XV won’t follow traditional difficulty settings, and will instead include two unique battle modes.

The developer recently took to the official forums to answer a number of fan questions, and one particular post concerned the game’s difficulty.

It turns out Final Fantasy XV will disregard traditional difficulty settings, but the game will enable you to “switch between different battle modes” on the fly.

“The equivalent to difficulty level settings in FFXV is a system where you can switch between different battle modes,” Square explained.

“By having this ability to switch modes, we want to make it so that both players who like action oriented, technical gameplay and also those who want to fight at a slower, more relaxed pace can all enjoy the combat in their own style.”

“This switching system is a key part of the gameplay that we decided to introduce based on the feedback we received from the Episode Duscae demo. We will go into more detail about the system closer to the game’s launch so stay tuned for more information.”

The presence of unique battle modes should also allow players who want to experience the story to progress through difficult battles without much trouble.
