The MMO variant of Final Fantasy could soon be receiving mod support, along with Final Fantasy XV cross-over content, according to the game’s director and producer, Naoki Yoshida. The development team has listened to the player base calling for mod support and is now working on it.
Speaking with GameSpot at GDC, Yoshida said: “We’re working on mod support UI integration for those who are looking into modding. We’ve heard people and their desire for mod support and we acknowledge that. We’re working towards implementing it”.
Players can also expect more legacy items and instances to make their way over to Final Fantasy XIV, including content from the upcoming Final Fantasy XV: “Every time we try to come up with ideas to incorporate elements from the Final Fantasy franchise and how to implement it in XIV, it’s not just about literally bringing the element in but making sure it’s enjoyable and integrates into the world.”
“The people who are familiar with the content and as well as those who haven’t had a chance to play the original games must have fun with it. Seeing people who are familiar with the content talking about it, we’re hoping it will get new players interested in playing previous Final Fantasy games.”
Exactly what content from Final Fantasy XV will make its way over to the MMO is still up for debate. Yoshida is currently in talks with the Final Fantasy XV director about it.
