Altissia is the capital of Accordo in Final Fantasy XV. It is one of the most important places in the game and is surrounded by water, being characterized by waterfalls and canals. Altissia has many and varied locations, such as cafes, ship-bourne market places and parks. The city is of a considerable scale and has a complex maze of streets. Visitors can ride the gondola to see the sights.
After Lady Lunafreya Nox Fleuret is believed to have died in the attack on Lucis, Prince Noctis's party travels to see her in Altissia where to two were to be wed. Lucis was attacked by Niflheim during a treaty signing ceremony, during which Noctis and his friends—as well as Luna—were heading to Altissia for the two to get married. Luna is accompanied by her attendant Gentiana when she is surrounded by imperial soldiers. Unfazed, she pushes away one of the gun barrels pointed at her. At some point, Leviathan appears at the city while Noctis and his friends battle Niflheim forces amid the chaos.
The coliseum in Altissia is a place where the player can play a minigame where monsters fight against each other, and the player participates by betting on the winner. The developers are considering adding more content there post-launch.
Creation and developmentEdit
Altissia based on the city of Venice, Italy and has numerous canals streaming through the city. The artists sought to make it original by employing multi-tier sea levels and three-dimensional city structures.
Like all naming choices for Final Fantasy XV, the name derives from Latin.Altissia means "the highest" or "most high".
