Square Enix released the latest, december update for Final Fantasy XV, the december update is available now for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Square Enix has released this game’s patch ahead of the latest DLC expansion Episode Ignis.

This new December update adds a very significant new feature to this game and that is character swapping. With update 1.19 gamers will be able to switch between Noctis, Prompto, Ignis and Gladiolus, in the open world action role-playing game in battle which was a much-needed feature from the inception of this game.

In the past, gamers could only utilise Noctis in the main storyline for Final Fantasy XV, the only exception was of course the character DLC’s for the rest of the characters Episode Gladioulus, Episode Prompto and the latest DLC Episode Ignis, so this is a pretty big deal for Final Fantasy 15 having the control of Prompto, Gladioulus and Ignis during the single-player story campaign and during quests and utilising their unique powers, gadgets and abilities such as Prompto’s gun slinging aim with his guns, Ignis’s awesome teleportation magic, fire a magical daggers, and Gladioulus’s awesome skill with his weapons.
