Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition preorders give Half Life Pack

Final Fantasy XV will see the return of Gordon Freeman as buyers of the Windows Edition get a Half Life Pack.

In addition, a demo of Chapter 1 will release on February 26th ahead of the game’s March 6th release date.

If you preorder or purchase Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition on Steam before May 1, you will get an in-game costume for Noctis which turns him into Gordon Freeman, complete with the HEV suit, scientist glasses and crowbar.


This isn’t the first major franchise Final Fantasy XV has crossed over with.


There will also be a Half-Life pack available for the multiplayer expansion, Comrades.  Also, if you preorder the game from Steam, there is a FFXV Fashion Collection which gives Noctis different t-shirts to wear. These include.

  • The strength-enhancing EPISODE GLADIOLUS Tee
  • The HP recovery rate-increasing EPISODE PROMPTO Tee
  • The critical hit rate-increasing EPISODE IGNIS Tee
  • The maximum HP-increasing COMRADES Tee

Alternatively, if you choose to preorder the game through Origin, you’ll receive the FFXV Decal Selection which offers various colourful decals for the Regalia car.

And if you choose to purchase the game via the Microsoft Store, your save file with the Xbox One version of Final Fantasy XV will be compatible. You will also be able to cross-play with Xbox One owners when playing Comrades. On top of that is the Powerup Pack which contains Dodanuki, a legendary sword which reduces enemy defense with each slash. The pack also gives you ten free phoenix downs and elixirs.

Choices, choices.
