Final Fantasy Wiki

Completing the Liege of the Lake tour.

Tours are a type of sidequest in Final Fantasy XV, first introduced in the updated Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae demo.

After camping at specific havens, Ignis, Prompto, or Gladiolus will invite Noctis for a special task at dawn. Noctis can either accept or deny the invitation. Party members have three tours each. If accepted, Noctis spends the morning "On Tour" with the specified party member. Other quests cannot be progressed until the tour is completed, and Noctis must not leave the vicinity of the destination.

Time does not pass while On Tour, remaining fixed at dawn.

In Episode Duscae, if the player completed the tour's objective, a smartphone with a photo of the day's quest is shown at the end of the day. Unlike the final game, triggering a Tour is not clearly separated from the main gameplay, and time passes as normal. The party members who were not on tour will also find random items once Noctis and company make camp again.

"A Stroll for Two", in which Iris shows Noctis around Lestallum, uses the same quest markers as a tour; however, Noctis is not considered On Tour during this quest, and so time passes as normal. Further, it is impossible to avoid the tour, and the reward for completion is not fixed; either an AP or EXP reward is given after each dialogue option depending on Noctis' choice.

Behind the scenes[]

Tours were added so players would have an active role in developing Noctis's relationship with Ignis, Prompto, and Gladiolus. Director Hajime Tabata has said the team wants players to feel these bonds grow.[1]

Ignis's tours were more difficult to come up with than Prompto and Gladiolus's. When the writers could not come up with anything apart from cooking, they used the word "glasses" as a starting point in the brainstorming stage.[2]
