42 Minutes Of FFXV Gameplay: Swords, Waypoints, Quests
If you're waiting not-so-patiently for the Final Fantasy XV demo that arrives next month, here's a little gift.
Of course, if you're one of those people that have to go into any experience - even a demo - as fresh as can be, you won't want to see this.
For everyone else, 42 minutes of gameplay on the PS4 is worth seeing. Now, personally, what I see is a big open-world structure complete with quests, way-points, and enemies you encounter in real-time (not dissimilar to Final Fantasy XII). I'm also seeing 99 percent swordplay and gunplay, along with various special moves like block, dodge-roll, etc. I suppose if you'd like to call this a role-playing game, you're welcome to do so. Seems like every title these days can make that claim in some way.
Me, I see an action game gone open-world - like every other game in existence, apparently - with a few light RPG elements. Hard to see it any other way, really.
