Final Fantasy XV Future DLC – New Episodes Confirmed
Square Enix dropped some major news for Final Fantasy XV fans at PAX East on Friday, confirming it will produce new content for the game through at least summer 2019.
The episodes will portray an “alternate grand finale” for the game, showing “a future everyone longed for,” meaning a possible outcome that could have existed for each of four characters:
- The first full episode will focus on Ardyn and is tentatively titled The Conflict of the Sage. The episode “portrays the struggles of Ardyn. Witness the resentment he harbored toward Lucis for over 2000 years, and his clashes with the Astrals”
- A smaller “side story” episode will focus on Aranea Highwind of the Niflheim Empire and will focus on the Starscourge disease. “The final day of the Empire turns out to be Aranea’s worst day,” Square Enix teased.
- A second full episode will let you play as Lunafreya and has the working title The Choice of Freedom. The story is “about Luna’s fate, which not even death can free her from. Her battle to save the one she loves overturns the destiny dealt to the Lucian King.”
- The final episode is titled The Final Strike and focuses on Noctis “parting way with the Astrals” as he “embarks upon his final battle in order to attain the ideal future for all his people.”
The episodes will all be released in 2019 and will also feature a new theme by composer Yoko Shimomura. Square Enix will release more details later this year.
Director of FFXV: Episode Ignis and all four new DLCs, Takefumi Terada, joined the stage to chat about the upcoming DLCs. “Episode Ardyn and Luna we knew we had to do, and from the dev team we knew we had to give the game an alternate grand finale,” Terada said. That led to Episode Ncotis. Based on fan feedback, the final DLC was either going to be Ravus, Aranea, or Nyx, but ultimately Terada decided on Aranea.
However, Mitsuno did almost tease the idea of even more DLC based on fan feedback. Personally I’m still pulling for Episode Cor, but I know a pipe dream when I make one.
And of course, with a new ending, the game has a brand-new theme song by Yoko Shimimura. The upcoming DLC episodes will hit starting Winter 2019 with Episode Ardyn and keep coming through summer 2019 at a more rapid pace than the previous four expansions.
