With a couple of weeks left before the anticipated launch, Square Enix has released an onslaught of screenshots that feature scenes, action sequences and everyday shots of “Final Fantasy XV.”

Siliconera has compiled the new information and screenshot overload. “Final Fantasy XV” will be powered by quests and the main quest for story progression. Even with this, players can choose how they would want to play the game. Some screenshots show Noctis and the gang in a diner, while another one has them in the middle of an eerie wasteland in a downpour.

The screenshots also showed a few Astrals, which are said to be gigantic beings who can actually lend a hand in battle. They will add to the body count in battle since there will be times when the players may be faced with both the Titans and the Nilfheim soldiers.

For transportation, the source also confirmed that it is possible to move by car, Chocobo, a ship and other methods. It also named the “Shift” warp move, which is exclusive to the Lucis family. This grants free movement in battle, but the tradeoff is that it uses up MP.

Shift has different uses. It can be used as a way to strategise a good move onto an enemy for an attack. On the other hand, it can also be one’s means of escaping a very tight and fast-paced battlefield, since Shifting to a high place can allow the player to recover lost HP and MP away from battle.

Among the revealed weapons include the Single-handed sword, the Great Sword, daggers, spear, shield, the big shuriken and magic. As in any battle game, each type of weapon offers its pros and cons in battle.

Square Enix also released a new teaser TV special for “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV.” It seems that the developer will launch the TV special in Japan just a little before the expected local opening in theatres. This will feature behind-the-scenes footage on the production of the game, the Japanese anime “Brotherhood” and the CG film, Anime News Network reported.

“Final Fantasy XV” will launch on Sept. 30. “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV” will be released in theatres a little early, landing in U.S. theatres come Aug. 19.
