At PAX East 2018, the Japanese video game developer and publisher revealed that it’s working on a new Final Fantasy XV DLC named The Dawn of the Future.
Unlike the previous FFX DLC episodes which focused on Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis; The Dawn of the Future allows us to learn more about Ardyn, Aranea, Lunafreya, and Noctis.
Therefore, FFXV The Dawn of the Future DLC will consist of 4 episodes scheduled to be released in 2018 and 2019.
Additional details have been provided by Square Enix via Gematsu.
Final Fantasy XV The Dawn of the Future DLC
Episode I: Ardyn The Conflict of the Sage (Winter 2019). 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 (Spring 2019). 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 (Spring 2019). 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 (Spring 2019). Parting ways with the Astrals, Noctis embarks upon his final battle in order to attain the ideal future for all his people.
Alongside the new Final Fantasy XV DLC; Square Enix confirmed that the new Comrades character customization tool will become available for the single-player campaign, and a standalone version of FFXV Comrades is in the works accompanied by two major updates.
Last but not least a Final Fantasy XV treasure hunting feature and the Shadow of the Tomb Raider collaboration have been announced.
While there is no information on how Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy XV will work together; the treasure hunting allows players to hide various treasures in the game’s world, for others to find. The longer a treasure remains the bigger the reward will be.
Bottom line, if you thought that you are done with Final Fantasy XV, you were wrong; because it seems that Square Enix still has some big plans for the game.
