Final Fantasy XV guide for unlocking Chocobos
Talk to Wiz at the Chocobo post (Duscae Map). When arriving in chapter 3 a side quest called “Friends of a Feather” will be marked there automatically. Accept his hunting quest “A Behemoth Undertaking” and kill the Behemoth (marked as mission target). After killing the Behemoth you must return to Wiz and talk to him again.
You can now interact with Rent-a-Bird machines. They are found at most outposts and parking spots. It costs 50 Gil per day to rent a Chocobo. You can press R2/RT to whistle for your Chocobo wherever you are. After the rental period has expired the Chocobo will run back to its outpost and you must rent a new one. You can also rent for several days at once.
Final Fantasy XV is an open world action role-playing video game developed and published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One home consoles. Enroute to wed his fiancée Luna on a road trip with his best friends, Prince Noctis is advised by news reports that his homeland has been invaded and taken over under the false pretense of a peace treaty – and that he, his loved one and his father King Regis, have been slain at the hands of the enemy. To gather the strength needed to uncover the truth and reclaim his homeland, Noctis and his loyal companions must overcome a series of challenges in a spectacular open world – that is filled with larger-than-life creatures, amazing wonders, diverse cultures and treacherous foes.
