Players can walk, drive a car, or ride chocobos across the world map. Party members may make remarks or give hints as to what can be done in the area. The map can be marked with a custom waymarker.
Weather and Day/Night cycles may effect the party members or surrounding areas. One in-game day lasts one real-time hour.
Camps can be set up in safe areas and allow the party members to recover HP and MP and tally experience earned. The party can eat meals that provide various buffs to the party. Camps also serve as fast travel points.
 Battle System
Final Fantasy XV uses a real-time action battle system called Active X Battle (AXB). Battles will have no load time, instead taking place in the real-time environments. The player directly controls Noctis, but is still able to give commands to the other party members. Noctis can also summon Archaeans to aid the party in battle. He uses various weapons in battle and each weapon performs a certain role. Noctis uses these weapons in his combo depending on the order in which the player places the weapons in the menu. This menu can be accessed mid-battle.
Abilities require MP to use, so MP management is a key component to gameplay. Players can dodge, dodge roll, block, counter attack, and jump. Noctis also has a special Warp ability that allows him to be teleported to certain spots on the battlefield.
When characters reach 0 HP, they have a danger gauge during which time they can be revived by another party member by interacting with them. If the gauge runs out, the character is KO'd. A KO'd character forfeits any EXP earned. HP and MP can be restored by hiding behind cover.
