Episode Prompto Will Have Third-Person Shooting

Runtime: 6:12    Author: Square Enix    Category: Trailers

Square Enix have released a new trailer for Episode Prompto, and it has a hearty dose of third-person shooting.

Prompto is shown picking up a sub-machine gun and using it with traditional third-person controls to take down new waves of foes. Towards the end of the video he even picks up a bazooka and aims it squarely at a sentry's legs.

The trailer shows how players can pick-up firearms from armouries, stealth-kill enemies to pick up their guns, or perform finishing moves on weakened enemies to steal theirs.

Naturally the game is still stats-based, and Prompto can still use his pistol, though the trailer only showed him doing so using the original game's auto-aim system.

Episode Prompto will release June 27.

Looks like it'll feel like a clunky third person shooter.
I hope they add more to the actual main game with this Season Pass, Ill be gutted if its all just episodes like this that just feel like tacked on minigames that fill plot holes.
Look forward more to multiplayer availability , but would like more in the main game to actually do in multiplayer when it comes...

I love Final Fantasy, one of the best things about the franchise is they always change the way things work.

Prompto being playable was supposed to be part of the main game but got scrapped eventually. There's an early Versus 13 screen shot of Prompto's gameplay. I'm so glad we'll finally play as him!
