FFXV is pretty much guaranteed at Gamescom next month! The event takes place between 5th - 9th August in Germany.

What are your hopes?

Do you have any fears?

Whatever you feel...

I'm hoping to see more on how towns will work out and maybe a sneak peak of a few summons. Hope to see a combat trailer showing off magic and maybe we'll finally get a release date out of them.

What Wolf said, I'd like to know more on the towns. See more of the battle system as it looks like a minor concern for me at the moment. Magic and summons are also high on my list to get a peek of.

^ Hopefully we get to see all of that and more! There are murmurings that there are going to be various stage demos of Final Fantasy XV. Personally I'm holding out for a story trailer that sheds more light on the ending of Episode Duscae.

I finally understand where Square got the inspiration for that quote.

You've lost me. Please elaborate. Is that something to do with Nintendo?

I'm 95% sure we'll get a release date at Gamescom, during the last ATR they said Gamescom would be the start of the games ''promotional run'' (or something to that effect). The date will be around April 2016. SE tends to like there early in the year launches, they won't want to launch in the holidays with the Fallouts, Call of Duty's, Halo's etc....

The game is very far along at this point and SE have to get it out relatively soon if they want KH3 and the FF VII Remake to launch this console generation :S

An on stage demo has already been confirmed, I think we get a story trailer with the release date aswell.

I hope you're 95% right!

It's interesting to see Square Enix choose a European event to start the full campaign for FFXV. The gaps between launch dates of FF games being released in the East and West have been shrinking over the years, so it would be amazing to see a world wide release!

I think a simultaneous worldwide launch is a given at this point, considering Episode Duscae's launch in both Japanese and dubbed English. SE seems to have caught up with the rest of the development community and are doing Dubbing/Translation during development rather then leaving it to the end.

Considering how large the EU/US gaming market is now they really can't afford not to, I'd be surprised if Japan even equates to 10% of FF XV's final sales.

^ In regards to that the latest copy of Famitsu has apparently been leaked, and SE have confirmed with them that the game will indeed get a simultaneous (thank you for reminding me of that word, I couldn't for the life of me remember in the above post) world wide release. Like you say it's pretty much a given but I still wouldn't want to get my hopes up without proper confirmation.

HURRY UP, GAMESCOM.

Hmm. There's still hope for them to delve in to some details during the 1 hour active time report. But if they don't...well. That would suck.

There's got to be something, surely.

Well, I hope that's a mistranslation/misunderstanding, because if not that's just stupid, bordering on insane.

That means the only things that might matter are the Active Time Report and those Q&A sessions.

I'll be pleased if we get either a new trailer or a release date either way, but I can't for the life of me figure out why SE would spend all that stage time having people play through the same old demo over and over and over again.

Just saw this on twitter! Knew there would be a new trailer. It hits at August 5th 08:00 CEST / August 4th 23:00 PST

There's gotta be a release date at the end of this "DAWN" trailer, or at least a window.

If it says '2016' at the end of it I'll be pretty happy.

I'm glad we're getting new footage! I just came here to post about it but Noctis beat me to it. Also Fox my fingers are crossed for that 2016 release, too. Gotta hit that 10th anniversary of the original Versus XIII announcement! 10 years...damn.

Yeah, I'm super excited for the new trailer. So excited that I might actually stay up until 2AM to see it.

Nah, I'll just wake up at 7AM and watch it before work.

And yeah, I really, really hope it ends with a release day, but, you know how that goes. Not going to hold my breath.

Well it's not over yet. Don't we still have the Active Time Report today? There's supposed to be yet another trailer/slew of new footage shown during that.

Also, does anyone know what the ringing phone at the end meant? Was it some hint that at a release date shortly being announced? The fact that it says "Pre-Order Now" at the end would suggest that it's not so far away.

My hypothesis:

There's going to be 3 or 4 trailers. We have DAWN, perhaps next is MORNING, then EVENING then NIGHT (Noctis means 'Night' after all...). These trailers will then stitch together into one SUPER TRAILER with the release window at the end.

The phone ringing is what moves this trailer into the next one, which will start with the ringing phone.

They showed some more footage of gameplay (Malboros confirmed) and fielded some questions but it looks like this will be all until PAX later this month and TGS next month.

Apparently Tabata is still hoping to have fully functional airships in the game but their still trying to figure out the technical side of things so it may not come in the final product but could be introduced as DLC later on if the team can get it working. He dodged a few questions concerning characters and the game's main villain.

Thats actually a pretty good idea. Again Square left us high and dry today. Maybe we will get a surprise pop up announcment sometime before Gamescon is over with. Ok looks like I can refocus on Fallout 4 now.....

ATR gameplay.

New gameplay? It COULD be content from Episode Duscae 2.0, but I'm not sure I haven't played through it so I don't know for sure. Definitely new to me tho.
