If you are near a body of water, Leviathan can be summoned to cause mass destruction among your opponents by using it's immense size to bite them. Even large enemies are dwarfed by the beast and can become it's next meal.
The party member's unique skills will level up depending on the actions performed, gaining additional effects along the way.

Each character has their favorite dish and eating it will increase command power.
Next, we have Gladiolus' survival skill that's leveled up by walking. As his survival level increases the chances of picking up valuable items at the end of battles goes up. Lastly, we have Prompto's photography skill, which improves by taking pictures during your journey.

A new guest party member feature is titled 'Link Attack', allowing you to issue commands to guests and attack together. Cor will help Noctis by using his giant sword to increase damage dealt, while Iris will attack enemies with a Moogle after a successful parry.
