Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV is the brand new PlayStation VR exclusive game that allows you to experience the world of Eos like never before! Using two PlayStation Move controllers, Monster of the Deep is a remarkably genuine VR fishing experience. It’s out today and here is everything you need to know about the new FFXV fishing game.
1. It’s not just about fishing
In Monster of the Deep, giant fish are terrorising the waters in various fishing locations around Eos. As a Hunter it is your duty to find the monsters lurking below the surface, fishing them out and restore peace to the waters. It won’t be that easy to catch these monsters though so you’ll have to use all your fishing skills and prowess to ensnare each beast and shoot them with a bullet of light to rid the world of them forever.
2. You can create your own in-game character
To fully immerse yourself in the world of Eos, you can create your very own customised avatar. If you’ve played the FFXV Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades, you’ll be familiar with our custom character creator and how detailed and flexible it is. If you’re really going to become a Hunter worthy of tracking down the monsters of the deep, you’re going to want to choose how you look.
3. There are six different locations
There are a total of six different fishing spots in Monster of the Deep, with each one being drastically different from the last. Environments range from abandoned ruins to tropical forests and each one also hosts different species of fish to catch. Speaking of different species of fish, there are a total of 100 different species for you to catch!
Not only are the environments drastically different, but the weather can also change too. Obviously sunny weather is the best for fishing but mother nature might not always want to play nice so you may have to deal with cloudy skies or even dim light as the sun goes down.
4. You get your own lodge
Every accomplished Hunter needs a base of operations and in Monster of the Deep this is your lodge. Here you can purchase new tackle like rods, reels, lines and lures. The lures are actually based on lures used in real-life, except now they’re tailored to suit the world of Final Fantasy XV.
5. You’ll meet some familiar characters along the way
At every fishing spot, you’ll have the chance to bump into your buddies from Final Fantasy XV! There are a number of special encounters with Noctis, Prompto, Gladio, Ignis and Cindy while you’re on the hunt for the monster of the deep so be sure to say hi! Who knows, they may even invite you back to camp to eat with them?
6. Night mob hunts and online tournaments
In Final Fantasy XV, daemons appear at night time and in Monster of the Deep, special monsters also appear at night. If you visit fishing spots at night then you can partake in special mob hunts.
If this wasn’t enough we’ve also included an online ranking system so you can compete with other VR players! Special tournaments with their own varied rules will be held at each fishing spot. Compete in these to show everyone your world class fishing skills!
Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV is out now exclusively for PlayStation VR and we hope you enjoy chasing down and catching the monsters that are plaguing the waters!
