After about five years since the last patch was released for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Steam version on PC, Square Enix released a new patch today.
The latest patch for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII steam version fixes “an issue of Lightning’s voice not being played in some scenes.” As many may have moved on from the trilogy, it’s indeed an odd move for Square Enix to fix a game over five years after it launched. Many may have figured out that it’s a sign that the Xbox Game Pass version of the game will be coming out soon.
Additionally, it seems Square Enix also updated old Steam games like NieR: Automata that will be released later this week.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Steam:
Lightning Returns is the concluding chapter of the Final Fantasy XIII saga and series heroine Lightning’s final battle. The grand finale of the trilogy brings a world reborn as well as free character customization and stunning action based battles.
The world is sinking into a sea of chaos, and in thirteen days, nothing will remain.
Though the planet is doomed, there is still hope for those who call it home.
After centuries in crystal stasis, a hero has awoken—a legendary warrior on a god-given mission to save the souls of mankind. Her name: Lightning.
Blessed with incredible strength and an arsenal of new weapons, she has everything she needs for the coming battle. Everything except time. And now she must make an impossible choice…
LIGHTNING UNDER YOUR CONTROL
Lightning will be the playable character – with a highly evolved range of techniques for battles and exploring the environment. Customise Lightning with a large range of different outfits and weapons; that affect not only the way she looks, but also her actions and abilities.
A new battle system gives a level of direct control over the action unlike any FINAL FANTASY game, while having iconic elements that are known and loved throughout the series too.

*Except for “FFVII Aerith Costume”
