Final Fantasy XV is a great game and is finally available on the Xbox One. As a player, you control the game’s main protagonist, Noctis Lucis Caelum. You will guide him as he explores the world around him on foot, using the party’s car “Regalia”, or on chocobos.

Gamers can use both the Regalia and Chocobos in battles if their connection to Noctis is strong enough. You can also use various objects around you to complete your missions.

Final Fantasy XV offers impressive graphics that will transport players into another realm. Unfortunately, not all gamers have been able to enjoy a smooth gaming experience to various technical issues.

Final Fantasy XV game bugs

1. FFXV won’t save data

Gamers report they can’t save game data due to the following error message: “Could not save data. Play will continue, but current settings are not saved.” Neither automatic nor manual saves work. Actions such as reinstalling the game or installing the day one patch don’t solve the problem.

I have the same error, but it’s on Xbox (Plz don’t get mad).
I have heaps of disk space (500GB), but no matter what I do, I cannot get it to save. DON’T DO THIS TO ME SQUARE ENIX, I HAVE WAITED LONG ENOUGH TO PLAY THIS

2. Font size is really small

One player points out that the game’s font size is extremely small, forcing gamers to get closer to their screens. Consoles gamers don’t usually sit near the display and the small font size makes it pretty hard for them to read the phrases and game texts.

My complaint / suggestion, is about the font size in the game, which is extremely small. The consoles gamers usually play away from televisions, and it gets bad for people who do not have such good eyesight, or who suffer from headaches, read the phrases and game texts.

Please enable something on the game options to increase the letters of the texts.

3. The metric system is missing

The metric measurement system is missing and this is extremely frustrating for gamers.  FFXV fans even created a poll on the game’s official website asking Square Enix to adjust measurements according to national standards or give people to option to choose the measurement system they want to use.

Square Enix!!!
For love of God please update measurement system and gibes players ability to switch between measurement systems imperial to metric/metric to imperial. Reason is: WE IN CANADA USE IT IN CONSTRUCTION ONLY!  We adopted METRIC SYSTEM IN 1970!!!

4. The DLC codes are missing

Fortunately, it appear this is not really a bug, but rather a brief delay. Some gamers received their codes after 45 minutes, while others are still waiting. Also, don’t forget to check the spam box: Some players report their DLC codes landed in the spam box.

I have received my codes now. It took them about an hour and 45 mintues to send me mine. They actually sent the same codes three times though haha. That tells me that they’re probably storing the information about each account’s codes somewhere that they can fix this if it doesn’t send out to everyone (fingers crossed for everyone who hasn’t gotten theirs). Good luck and have fun!

5. Chocobos can’t sprint

FFXV players complain they can’t sprint with their chocobos. The Sprint Text remains grey even after installing the FFXV 1.02 Patch.

I’m the only one who can’t Sprint with my Chocobo? I hold R2 and the Sprint Text is still grey. Sometimes when i button smash my square (for raging) it works but its very rare. I hope with the 1.02 Patch it will be fixed ._.
EDIT: Still buggy for me with 1.02 _ _
