Final Fantasy 15 Gets Half-Life DLC for Early Buyers
Final Fantasy 15 on PC makes its way to the platform on March 6, and Square Enix announced that there are a variety of bonuses available, depending on which store gamers make the purchase. These rewards are the usual list such as extra costumes or power-ups, but for those that make their purchase from Steam, one of those extra costumes happens to be based on the protagonist of Half-Life, Gordon Freeman.
The Half-Life pack may sound like a twisted joke, but it will be completely free for anyone who buys Final Fantasy 15 on Steam before May 1st, Square Enix said. Gordon Freeman’s orange hazmat suit isn’t only available for the hero of the story to wear while saving the world; players are also able to equip the iconic set of glasses and crowbar to their customizable characters in the Comrades multiplayer expansion.
This costume may feel extremely out of place for Final Fantasy 15, but remember, Square Enix recently partnered with Ubisoft to bring Assassin's Creed themed content to the game so they're not afraid of wacky crossover content. A few other t-shirts are available for the player, although the orange suit is the highlight of the DLC.
Microsoft Store buyers will receive a generous package of Phoenix Downs and Elixirs to use right at the beginning of the game, along with a special sword that should stay relevant for a while. Purchasing Final Fantasy 15 from the Microsoft Store will also allow players' PC save data to work with the Xbox One version of the game. Cross-play is also making its way to the recent multiplayer expansion, Comrades.
What Else Is Coming?
Finally, EA Origin members will receive a few car decals for their purchase as long as they pre-order ahead of the March 6th release date. If anyone is interested in trying the game out before dedicating their money, Square Enix is releasing a demo for the game on February 26th, which will let gamers play through the entirety of the first chapter.
This bonus content is exciting for anyone purchasing the game from the Steam store. Although, this could mean Valve is ready to announce something big for the silent protagonist of Half-Life but it may just be a bit of fun. Gordon may never get his chance to save his universe but he can certainly has a chance to rescue the Final Fantasy universe at least.
