Square Enix has confirmed that a free-to-play version of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is coming to PC and PlayStation 4 next month.
The 3v3 brawler – developed in partnership with Team Ninja at Koei Tecmo Games – will be called, unsurprisingly, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Free Edition. It’ll offer “the opportunity to try out a limited roster of characters on a weekly basis” and permits players of the free version to mix freely with those who’ve stumped up for the paid version.
“A variety of characters and weapons are also available for individual purchase,” Square says, (thanks, Gematsu) so your favourite characters “can be a permanent member” of your go-to team.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Free Edition releases on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam 12th March, 2019.
“It’s far from perfect and there’s plenty of work to be done if this is really going to play to its strengths – this isn’t the Dissidia you may well already know, but once you’re over that disappointment, there is at least something worthwhile in its stead,” Martin said in Eurogamer’s Dissidia Final Fantasy NT review.
