Square Enix released a new update for Final Fantasy XV this week, bringing the usual smattering of miscellaneous bug fixes to the epic open-world RPG and a new recipe for our fave chef, Ignis. But what’s really getting attention is the new in-game survey asking what additional FFXV content players would like to see in the future, including possible new story content, playable characters and more.

You can only vote once in the survey, and can only choose one item. Square Enix says options performing well in the survey may be added to FFXV in the future. There’s some great choices here, so much so that it’s tough to pick only one. Below you’ll find the options to pick from, though bear in mind these may contain some story spoilers if you haven’t yet completed the main storyline of the game.

For us, it’s something of a toss-up between three of the Story Content additions: Ardyn, Lunafreya and the World of Ruin. In our review of the game, we noted wanting to see more development of these two major characters, as the absence of details about them detracted from our overall enjoyment of the game.

However, we ultimately chose the World of Ruin option. After the long buildup, the end-game section of the game felt hasty and rushed, and we really wanted to explore the environments outside of Hammerhead and Insomnia after the time skip. We’d also be excited to catch up with some familiar faces after Noctis’ return, including spending some more time with the older, wiser chocobros and getting to meet Demon Hunter Iris. But really, any of the story content additions could add a lot to some of the narrative shortcomings of the game and would make us super excited to jump back into the FFXV world. That said, we’d hope for a bit more robust story content than we saw in the first DLC expansion, Episode Gladiolus.
