Final Fantasy XV To Get Four New DLC Episodes in 2019; Comrades To Be Available Standalone


During a panel at PAX East 2018, Square Enix revealed the future roadmap of updates coming to Final Fantasy XV.

This year will be focused on the Comrades multiplayer portion of the game, with two content updates set to hit in Summer and Winter. The publisher also announced that a standalone version of Comrades will be available during Summer. Furthermore, the character customization designed for Comrades will be carried over to the single player mode so that folks may create their own protagonist in the Windows 10 PC version of Final Fantasy XV (which is also getting a level editor later this year).

However, as promised Final Fantasy XV is also going to get new story-based DLC episodes; these are scheduled to be released from the beginning of next year to Summer 2019. Below you can find the details of each episode, straight from the developers.

  • Episode I: Ardyn — “The Conflict of the Sage”
    This story portrays the struggles of Ardyn. Witness the resentment he harbored towards Lucis for over 2,000 years, and his clashes with the Astrals.
  • Episode Side Story: Aranea — “The Beginning of the End”
    A side-story about the Starscourge depicted from the Niflheim’s perspective. The final day of the Empire turns out to be Aranea’s worst day.
  • Episode II: Lunafreya — “The Choice of Freedom”
    This story’s 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.
  • Episode III: Noctis — “The Final Strike”
    Parting ways with the Astrals, Noctis embarks upon his final battle in order to attain the ideal future for all his people.

All of these episodes are being directed by Takefumi Terada (who directed the Episode Ignis DLC), and the last one will also feature an alternate ending to the storyline.
