Square Enix announced the Royal Edition of Final Fantasy XV they also included a price for the upgrade pack for those who already own the base game. However, soon after the announcement Square Enix retracted that price and announced that they will reveal the upgrade pack closer to the release of the Royal Edition.
Alongside the release of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition for PC is Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition for PS4 and Xbox One. It includes the base game, the Final Fantasy XV Season Pass, and new features such as a new map, first-person view, and the ability to explore the sea with a boat.When I initiated the download on my Xbox, no fewer than 15 content items started initializing for download.
Since its announcement, Square Enix has been silent on how much it would cost existing Final Fantasy XV owners to upgrade to the Royal Edition. Buying Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition on its own is $50 internationally and Rs. 2,499 in India. But if you already own the game, you can spend a lot less.
Listings for Final Fantasy XV Royal Pack DLC — an upgrade for existing Final Fantasy XV owners— on the PS Store and Microsoft Store indicate that existing owners spend half price. The Final Fantasy XV Royal Pack DLC price is Rs. 1,248 on PS4. Meanwhile, Xbox One owners can pay Rs. 1,246 for the Final Fantasy XV Royal Pack. It should cost $20 internationally
