As of December 13, 2018 Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades is officially standalone from the first game as its own game. However, on their website they use the following wording to describe how this transition works and how new players can obtain the standalone multiplayer,
FINAL FANTASY XV MULTIPLAYER: COMRADES is available to players who purchased FINAL FANTASY XV and the FINAL FANTASY XV Season Pass, FINAL FANTASY XV MULTIPLAYER: COMRADES or the previously-released FINAL FANTASY XV MULTIPLAYER EXPANSION: COMRADES (DLC version)
However, this wording is a bit unclear and doesn't clarify whether or not the multiplayer standalone is available to players who purchase the season pass after December 13, 2018. So my question is this:
If I purchase the season pass for Final Fantasy XV after December 13, 2018, will I also be provided with the standalone Comrades multiplayer or will I have to purchase that separately?
