The following screens and videos demonstrates the use of the tool Bonamik, which can manipulate effects involving velocity, material deformations, and more.

This last batch of screenshots cover the work incorporated in making XV‘s environment more lively and natural-looking, inspired by our real world.

Final Fantasy XV will be released worldwide on November 29th later this year.
