As well as the new screenshots there have been a few announcements regarding the Episode Duscae Demo, which will be included in copies of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. In the demo you will be able to traverse a large area, called Duscae, that features Plains as well as wooded mountain areas. Players that put the time in will be able to  discover caves and treasures. You will also accrue XP by fighting monsters that you can use to level up. Something you may want to do a lot before you face the Behemoth. It has also been announced that you will be able to set up camp, cook food and eat , giving characters a "Cooking Level". 

The story of Final Fantasy XV focuses on Noctis Lucis Caelum, a prince of the nation of Lucis who was endowed by a power connected to the goddess of death. The last nation to hold a crystal and long locked in a prolonged cold war as the world's other nations having lost their own and in fear of Lucis' vast power, it is invaded by the military nation of Niflheim on the eve of a peace treaty between the two nations. Noctis and his companions are forced to flee from Niflheim's forces, working to defeat them and retake Lucis' crystal. During the course of the game, Noctis is forced to fight Stella Nox Fleuret, a woman who wields similar powers to him and shares a deep connection with him.

So there you have it, We're sure you'll agree that the graphics are looking incredible and it would be safe to say that we are really looking forward to the new game.
