With the announcement of the new two-month delay for “Final Fantasy XV,” Game Director Hajime Tabata confirmed that the team will deliver an hour-long sneak peek of the master version of the game.

Square Enix has released the said video, seen below. There’s a lot of gameplay footage within the clip. It features the master version, which will be playable at Gamescom

As per Tabata’s announcement, the master version did not yet live up to the expectations of the developers, hence the additional time in development.

From the first gameplay alone, there is a glimpse of the seamless transition from cutscenes to gameplay. Once mechanic Cindy gives players the map, players can start exploring the different areas near the car shop. Also as promised, the footage is in English, though there are still subtitles at the bottom.

The video shows a few transactions as Noctis and the gang try to further their adventures. Some of the controls and inventories are shown. It also features a couple of fight scenes where gang make use of good teamwork. The full video clip can be seen below.

Beyond the new gameplay sneak peek, Square Enix has also announced new songs from the “Final Fantasy XV” from Florence + the Machine.

In a press release, the developed confirmed three new tracks, “Too Much Is Never Enough,” “I Will Be” and “Stand By Me.”

“I’ve always seen Final Fantasy as a beautiful and creative game so I don’t think I could have worked with another video game. It would have made sense. In some ways, the landscape of Final Fantasy and my own internal landscape seemed to fit quite well, it’s mythical and beautiful and epic,” said Florence when asked on her decision to collaborate with the game.

All three songs feature Florence’s emotive vocals, with “Too Much Is Never Enough” finally premiering on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw. The songs are already available on iTunes.
