Everyone has video game deals up for Black Friday, including game companies themselves.

Some physical games have received discounts up to 75% off, while digital titles have been reduced as far as 85%. Here are the highlights from Square…
Earlier this year, Square Enix announced a second wave of Final Fantasy XV DLC content. It was quite a surprising move from the company, given that few games are given that kind of second life beyond their initial Season Pass content. Now today came an even bigger surprise: they changed their minds.
Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition isn’t a mobile exclusive anymore. Square is planning to make the game playable on consoles….and they’re starting immediately with the surprise release of Pocket Edition on Playstation 4 and XBox One.
Now is the perfect time for newcomers to embark on their journey through the world of FINAL FANTASY® XV. SQUARE ENIX® today released FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION for STEAM®, Origin and Windows 10, and FINAL FANTASY XV ROYAL EDITION for the Xbox One and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. Both editions are packed with brand-new add-on content and features in addition to the base game, including all Season Pass content released since launch, an expanded map, new areas to explore and more.
Although the original plan for Final Fantasy XV was for the developer to release three large DLC packs over the course of 2018, most of the extra content might not make it to gamers this year.
Speaking in an interview with 4Gamer, Square Enix employee and the director behind the title, Hajime Tabata, explained that the team were focusing on creating meaningful and enjoyable DLC rather than trying to rush it out. This is especially important considering how the game wasn’t as well received y fans as the company had expected.
“There is one thing I need to let everyone know, and that is perhaps it won’t all be out only this year Instead of fussing over ‘during 2018,’ it’s necessary to ensure a reasonable development period. We’ve decided to make four episodes through 2019.”
Fans will be able to experience all of Chapter 1 and fully explore the tutorial and opening quests of the epic adventure in Eos through an upcoming demo for FINAL FANTASY® XV WINDOWS EDITION. This free demo will be available ahead of the game’s release on STEAM®, Origin and Windows 10.
FINAL FANTASY XV fans can now join Noctis and his brothers-at-arms in the action RPG mobile game KING’S KNIGHT –Wrath of the Dark Dragon– in a special crossover event. Now through March 2, players can enlist Noctis, Prompto, Gladiolus and Ignis during cooperative-play battles.
Fans and newcomers can now experience FINAL FANTASY® XV anywhere and anytime with FINAL FANTASY XV POCKET EDITION, available now on the App Store, Google Play Store, and Amazon App Store. With an adorable art style and casual touch controls optimized for mobile devices, the critically acclaimed title is now easier than ever to pick up and play.
