Final Fantasy 15 Type-D off-road car – How to get the monster truck upgrade in update 1.12

The Final Fantasy 15 Type-D Off-Road Vehicle is one of many free post-launch updates introduced to the massive open-world role-playing game following its release in late 2016.

As part of update 1.12 alongside the release of Episode Prompto, it fixes a common complaint since launch: why can’t you take the Regalia off-road?

The way to get the monster truck upgrade is very simple, and the restrictions on where you can go are surprisingly few, so consider it a viable alternative to your trusty Chocobo.

How to get the type D off-road car in Final Fantasy 15

Getting the monster truck upgrade is pretty easy. First, make sure the game is loaded on the latest version 1.12; this is the one that includes files for Episode Prompto and is over 8GB to 10GB in size, so it should be pretty obvious.

Let’s Play Final Fantasy 15: WHAT’S HAPPENING (Xbox One Gameplay)

Then, load a save file and head to Cindy in Hammerhead and talk to her, who will be happy to tell you about a new off-road upgrade.

We used a post-completion save, but if you’re still early on, you can apparently get it as early as Chapter 3, useful for the many, many side quests that open up at that time.

Next, select it from the customization menu (it has its own option), then select it and the upgrade is yours. That easy!

We also assume that revisiting Cindy will allow you to change her back to her original (or flying) form if you change your mind.

Do you need more help? Our Final Fantasy 15 guide and walkthrough can provide tips on the main story, as well as the many open-world quests and activities. Learning how to get AP quickly, EXP quickly, and money or Gil quickly will help you in many optional dungeons and tombs, including how to open and explore their locked doors. There are also many interesting side quests, such as the Scraps of Mystery and Professors Protege frog locations. And if you want to get around easier, you can rent a Chocobo, learn the infinite sprint trick, and later in the game get the Regalia Type F flying car. There’s also more to see and do with the DLC, like Episode Gladiolus and Episode Soon.

How to drive the Type D off-road car in Final Fantasy 15

The Type-D operates much like the Regalia, allowing for manual and automatic driving options, but you’ll want to opt for the former for off-road driving.

  • As usual, use the right trigger to accelerate and once you’re away from an outpost or other NPC-filled area (where the car will hit the track), you can freely drive off-road by moving the stick to drive as any other. driving game. (After dozens of hours stuck on the rails, it feels a little strange, right?)
  • The Type-D can jump by pressing the Circle/B button when the bottom left indicator is lit green, allowing it to jump over barriers, rocks, and other obstacles that might get in its way and into the wild.
  • You can see the jump indicator at the bottom left.

  • Your party has a series of custom animations (including selfies!) for when you jump.
  • You can run over enemies and even kill them, although you won’t receive XP for the trouble.
  • Although you can’t ride the Type-D into deep bodies of water or outside the edges of the map, you can climb the rock arches that cover the landscape, then jump off and live to fight another day.
  • As the game mentions, the vehicle is too heavy to push, so you must tow it if you run out of fuel while exploring the landscape.
  • Update 1.12 also adds new Episode Prompto music that you can listen to on the radio.
