‘Final Fantasy XV’ hits 6M units sold

Final Fantasy hits another high-note

Fans seem to be loving the new Final Fantasy installment from Square Enix, the company announced today that the shipment and digital sales for Final Fantasy XV have exceeded six million units. The new game released back on November 29, 2016.

To be fair, it’s been a bit of wait for the last 1M units. The popular game had an amazing debut of 5M units sold on day-one, which was a few weeks ago. The new Final Fantasy game received mostly glowing reviews, praising the game’s open-world aspect and enhanced combat system.

The game recently launched a free game update, called the Holiday Pack, alongside a premium Holiday Pack+ DLC option. Both of those DLC packs are still available for download, you can find them through the game or on the Xbox Live or PSN stores. The company reminded players today, “Those who download the Holiday Pack (Free Version) or Holiday Pack+ will also gain access to the “Moogle Chocobo Carnival,” a special in-game event that brings an exciting festival to the whole city of Altissia, starting on Tuesday, January 24th for a limited time”.

Square Enix also stated that, “regular updates enhancing the main game will be coming soon,” but didn’t offer any details during today’s announcements. The company only said that the “premium DLC” will provide players “additional gameplay experiences”. That premium in the name usually means that you will have to pay for it, but fans will just have to wait to find-out what Square Enix has waiting for them.

If you haven’t picked-up the game yet, it’s available for both PS4 and Xbox One, and you can grab it on sale. Many retailers, including Amazon.com, are offering the game at a reduced price this week. The game is the latest installment to the popular ‘Final Fantasy’ franchise. In the game players will join Prince Noctis and his friends on an epic journey as they unravel Noctis’s destiny and take up arms against the warmongering empire, Niflheim.
