Unlike other games, FFXV allows players to learn as the characters continue their journey by providing pop-ups when players encounter a new system or element in the game.

The game features four magic elements, namely fire, ice, wild, and thunder. The ‘Wild’ magic element can be produced by combining the three other elements. Players can draw their magic from crystals which are scattered around the fantasy world of Eos. However, before players can use them, they have to craft these crystals with other elements and place them inside a flask. After that, it can be used to equip the characters.

Final Fantasy XV is confirmed for release on November 29,2016 for both the PlayStation 4 and XBox. PlayStation is offering an FFXV-themed Luna Edition slim PS4 along with a free copy of Kingsglaive.
