Final Fantasy XV Day 1 Update (1.01) Patch Notes Revealed, Adds New Items And Cutscenes

Final Fantasy XV will be officially out on November 29th but thanks to stores breaking their street date, the game is already out in the wild. We have already heard about the size of the day 1 patch, which is around 7.2 GB on PS4, but we still haven’t seen what has been added or fixed in the new patch.

Thankfully, we can have an idea of the day 1 patch notes through the PS4 Update History, which lists the changes and additions to the new patch. Here is what is included in the day 1 patch.

Version 1.01

  • Various bug fixes
  • New items and cutscenes
  • Cutscene adjustments
  • Deeper combat, driving and other game mechanics

Saved games must be updated to work with the current version of the game.

Current version saves will not work with the former version of the game.

Judging from the patch notes above, there appears to be quite a lot of changes, even the addition of new cutscenes, which likely refers to Kingsglaive CG scenes being mixed with some of the in-game cutscenes.

As for the other changes, we might hear more details about them directly from the game director, Hajime Tabata, tomorrow.

Final Fantasy XV will be released on November 29th for the PS4 and Xbox One.
