Uncovered: Final Fantasy 15 live report Finished

Hello! Aoife here. I'm in LA, where the people are all impossibly beautiful and the weather is currently doing a number on my pasty Irish complexion.

I'm here for Uncovered: Final Fantasy 15, which kicks off later this evening at 7pm PT, or 3am UK time. Square Enix has said it'll be making "a whole host of huge announcements", and it's expected that at the very least we'll see a release date confirmation and some new gameplay.

In fact, we've kind of had both of those things leaked already. Oops.

Anyway, if you're still awake at that ungodly hour and want to join me in hoping Square will tell us something we don't already know, head back here at around 2:30am (what time do people usually start livetexting before an event? [You haven't already started? -Ed]) and keep me company. We can discuss our favourite all-time summons. Remember when 13 had a motorbike made out of women?

  • INSOMANiAC 2 years ago

  • yadspi 2 years ago

    i'm not liking having to see a lot of side things to understand the game
  • INSOMANiAC 2 years ago

    They're certainly throwing money at this, the CG looks great
  • rodrigosantosrodrigu 2 years ago

    SHIT
  • yadspi 2 years ago

    it feels like a CGI film
  • rodrigosantosrodrigu 2 years ago

    HOLY
  • rodrigosantosrodrigu 2 years ago

    dude. what graphics are those?
  • yadspi 2 years ago

    or Full Metal Alchemist, got you covered Aoife

  • yadspi 2 years ago

  • INSOMANiAC 2 years ago

    not as stupid as Pumpo, or Pimpo. And I speak English
  • yadspi 2 years ago

    i hope this anime comes before the game
  • yadspi 2 years ago

    Prompto sounds stupid, maybe because I speak Spanish
  • INSOMANiAC 2 years ago

    Are they serving you people free alcohol because you seem to be laughing at extremely poor jokes....

  • yadspi 2 years ago

    it's still weird seeing all the modern stuff and suddenly classic FF stuff
  • INSOMANiAC 2 years ago

    it suddenly got a lot better now all the foreign narrators have been dubbed in at once so we cant hear cock all
  • DakeyrasUK 2 years ago

    What? Why is there a foreign voice over all of a sudden?
  • jonnyX 2 years ago

    Listening to classic FF tunes while driving is a genius touch.
  • Fox89 2 years ago

    Ignis obeying the rules of the road like a boss
  • Fox89 2 years ago

    "CHERKERBERS"That's it. That's what they're called now. It's been decided.
  • yadspi 2 years ago

  • yadspi 2 years ago

    that mural is awesome
  • yadspi 2 years ago

    yeah, the one with the glasses is too loud
  • DakeyrasUK 2 years ago

    Post deleted
  • yadspi 2 years ago

    why would it be weird?tu turututru tu tu tuuuu
  • Oridan 2 years ago

    Alternatively, don't do it. You might seem like a crazy person.
  • yadspi 2 years ago

    now i'm hearing it in my head...
  • Oridan 2 years ago

    DOOOO IIIIT
  • CrazyOldDave 2 years ago

    I dare you.
  • yadspi 2 years ago

    Do it!
  • Oridan 2 years ago

    So is this the place where they're going to show the trailer for pokemon sun and moon?
  • yadspi 2 years ago

    9pm here in Puerto Rico and waiting....
  • CrazyOldDave 2 years ago

    Got to be awake for this! xD Keep going Eurogamer! :D
  • wellzy4eva 2 years ago

    I hope they are supplying plenty of Caffeine for the Journalists with messed up body clocks, lol.
  • romelpotter 2 years ago

    Aoife, as I have grown up with Final Fantasy, things have been cool; however....FF13 was the first FF title that seemed to me to felt, I dont know, "seedy" to play. I haven't been able to get into a FF title since! Is FF XV different?
  • tenebrae 2 years ago

    Sleep is for the weak!
  • oldskooldeano 2 years ago

    Tough gig Aoife. The things one must do for journalism eh?
  • Sammoore 2 years ago

    Are we expecting updates on other square stuff, or is this definitely FFXV only?
  • Baritone 2 years ago

    Best summon: Eden from FF8. What is actually happening there please.
  • Lion-heart 2 years ago

    Good luck to the crazy people who are going to stay up. Sleep is far too valuable to me nowasays.
  • TeaFiend 2 years ago

    3AM? I am going to be doing important things then, like sleeping and dealing with internal existential dilemmas.
  • Kasper_Finknottle 2 years ago

    Sadly it's a work day or otherwise I'd be tempted. Try not to hallucinate
  • GamesConnoisseur 2 years ago

    I ll be comfortably snug, deep asleep, probably dreaming of being bang in the middle of an orgy with aforesaid beautiful people... and just catch up in the morning rather than actually staying up!Getting too old for those things nowadays
  • elvenscroll 2 years ago

    I'm looking forward to it, but not enough to stay up until 3am. Ironically I probably could have done so, 10 years ago (when the fucker was first announced!)
  • xRiska 2 years ago

    "It's all a ruse! This isn't a XV event. Here's all of the info on the FFVII remake. And a release date. Which is tomorrow" - Carlsberg don't do press events...
  • Mike1980 2 years ago

    3am? Sod that.

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

17:24 By Aoife Wilson

Up since 4am LA time. This is going to be an interesting day.

01:03 By Aoife Wilson

Well the journalists have all gathered and are now awaiting a minibus to take us to the event venue. Please look forward to other scintillating updates, coming soon. Bet you're glad you stayed awake.

01:08 By Aoife Wilson

@sammoore Definitely XV only, apparently. We've been told it'd be pretty pointless asking questions on the VII remake as it's a different team here working on XV

01:09 By Aoife Wilson

@mistress Aren't we all.

02:28 By Aoife Wilson

Anyone up? Guests are filing in. Venue is appropriately fancy. Cosplayers are in attendance. All is as it should be.

02:31 By Aoife Wilson

@riz23 It's tough but I get through it. Somehow.

02:31 By Aoife Wilson

A new thing that I learned ten minutes ago is that my data abroad has an upper limit cap. So if I suddenly go dark, you all know why.

02:40 By Aoife Wilson

They're playing the chocobo theme as people are getting settled. Because of course they are.

02:40 By Aoife Wilson

Geoff Keighley is 2 seats behind me. Who dares me to go scream the chocobo theme in his ear?

02:41 By Aoife Wilson

Because I totally will.

02:42 By Aoife Wilson

Phil Spencer is here. Sadly not in cosplay though.

02:43 By Aoife Wilson

Phil Spencer is a fairly handsome man. Is it weird to think that?

02:44 By Aoife Wilson

Sorry guys. You're getting the unedited thoughts of a jetlagged person running on no sleep here.

02:59 By Aoife Wilson

@yadspi I'm about ten rows from the front, almost in the centre

03:02 By Aoife Wilson

Here we go!

03:03 By Aoife Wilson

Sakaguchi on stage like a boss

03:04 By Aoife Wilson

The father/child theme is an important one for XV, I feel.

03:04 By Aoife Wilson

Oh yes please. He wants to return the series to its roots

03:06 By Aoife Wilson

The summons in this game look so insane.

03:07 By Aoife Wilson

I actually love the road trip framing. It's adorable and so FF.

03:08 By Aoife Wilson

They should have hired me and Chris Bratt for this.

03:14 By Aoife Wilson

Amano is in the building

03:15 By Aoife Wilson

Uematsu too. He basically scored my childhood. Cosmo canyon theme 4 life <3

03:17 By Aoife Wilson

Florence & the Machine covered Stand By Me as FFXV's theme song

03:18 By Aoife Wilson

She looks as sleepy as I feel. And also look.

03:19 By Aoife Wilson

Are we here for Final Fantasy or these guys? Yawn.

03:21 By Aoife Wilson

We already know it honey.

03:21 By Aoife Wilson

PRESS IIIIIIT

03:22 By Aoife Wilson

Finally getting to the good stuff

03:23 By Aoife Wilson

CHERKERBERS

03:26 By Aoife Wilson

God this world looks gorgeous. I like how you can almost forget its Final Fantasy and then see some wicked cool weird geographical stuff off in the distance.

03:28 By Aoife Wilson

Titan tho. XV gets scale. Imagine what Bahamut will look like.

03:31 By Aoife Wilson

Wine bars confirmed for XV. I'm never leaving.

03:33 By Aoife Wilson

The crowd is LOVING Gladio and Prompto.

03:35 By Aoife Wilson

A five episode animated series is coming. Elaborates on the team's history and relationships, by the looks of things.

03:35 By Aoife Wilson

Episode one available for free online now!

03:36 By Aoife Wilson

It's called Brotherhood and has no affiliation to Assassin's Creed, I assume.

03:36 By Aoife Wilson

Oh, Luna is Noctis' fiance? News to me.

03:37 By Aoife Wilson

A CG trailer or actual film?

03:38 By Aoife Wilson

I like hat man. Who is hat man?

03:39 By Aoife Wilson

Kingsglaive, a full length feature film, coming soon. Jeez, they are going all-out here.

03:40 By Aoife Wilson

Square are partnering with Audi and have made an actual custom car. Square has no chill.

03:41 By Aoife Wilson

Lena Headey is SUCH a babe.

03:43 By Aoife Wilson

Lena voices Luna. So the film takes place kind of simultaneously to the game and covers what's going on back home while Noct is on his road trip.

03:44 By Aoife Wilson

Sean Bean is playing King Regis. Which means he's definitely gonna die.

03:46 By Aoife Wilson

It's Aaron Paul BITCH.

03:46 By Aoife Wilson

Sorry, that was low-hanging fruit.

03:47 By Aoife Wilson

He's playing Nyx, the sexy secret service-style badass.

03:49 By Aoife Wilson

Square has been working on Kingsglaive for the last 3 years, apparently.

03:51 By Aoife Wilson

Final Fantasy King fighting over a chunk over crystal meth. There's a mental image.

03:52 By Aoife Wilson

The film will be available to download and stream 'soon.' It'll be out before the game.

03:53 By Aoife Wilson

Mini-gamessss.

03:55 By Aoife Wilson

Justice Monsters Five. Mobile game and also in-game mini-game coming before the main game launches. Registration opens today.

03:57 By Aoife Wilson

This is the demo that leaked earlier today.

03:57 By Aoife Wilson

LOOK AT CARBUNCLE.

04:00 By Aoife Wilson

Platinum Demo. It's coming out....soon.

04:00 By Aoife Wilson

How soon?

04:03 By Aoife Wilson

Demo is totally free, which is nice.

04:03 By Aoife Wilson

Carbuncle is a DLC summon for the main game that unlocks if you play the demo

04:04 By Aoife Wilson

It's out today. Get downloading guys.

04:04 By Aoife Wilson

Xbox One and PS4 only, I'm afraid.

04:08 By Aoife Wilson

Deluxe Edition announced. Looks swish, nice Amano artwork steel case and a couple of DLC items.

04:09 By Aoife Wilson

Ultimate Collector's edition is even more ridiculous. Comes with..well, everything. Only 30,000 are being released?

04:11 By Aoife Wilson

Tabata coming out to push the button. I feel kind of bad that we all already know, tbh.

04:13 By Aoife Wilson

@insomaniac to be fair, that's actually members of the public. Tickets were available online.

04:13 By Aoife Wilson

Oh god there's confetti.

04:13 By Aoife Wilson

MY HAIR YOU GUYS.

04:14 By Aoife Wilson

A piece just went down my bra. THANKS SQUARE.

04:16 By Aoife Wilson

I would play this for the summons alone, tbh.

04:18 By Aoife Wilson

Trust fund boating confirmed

04:18 By Aoife Wilson

Holy shit the car just flew

04:19 By Aoife Wilson

That was like the end of Grease, only sexier.

04:22 By Aoife Wilson

Thanks for staying up guys. I actually played the demo, will be posting some impressions as soon as I get back to the hotel.
