Folks who enjoy Final Fantasy XV or wish to jump into the PC version of the JRPG that was originally released in 2016 for Xbox One and PS4, will soon gain access to four pieces of DLC, mod tools and a level editor for the PC version.
During a panel talk at PAX East 2018, Square Enix announced plans for Final Fantasy XV and what fans can expect in the near future. Firstly, there will be four pieces of downloadable content comprised of episodes spanning across playable characters Ardyn, Aranea, Lunafreya, and Noctis.
The aforesaid episodes are planned to release sometime in 2019. Additionally, Square Enix made mention that the concept for the new content is to realize a different future, and depict an alternate grand finale “where the heroes will challenge their fates in order to realize the ideal future they envisioned.”
Below is a list of bite-sized info regarding each DLC for Final Fantasy XV:
Episode I: Ardyn (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 (Spring 2019) – A side-story about the Star scourge depicted from the Niflheim’s perspective. The final day of the Empire turns out to be Aranea’s worst day.
Episode II: Lunafreya (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 (Spring 2019) – Parting ways with the Astrals, Noctis embarks upon his final battle in order to attain the ideal future for all his people.
Furthermore, folks who like to mess around with mods will find that Square Enix will publish official mod tools this spring. Mods will be hosted on Steam’s Workshop page, which will be for PC (via Steam).
If mod tools aren’t enough, the company will also release a level editor that is currently slated to released sometime this year’s fall. Players who are into spawning enemies, placing assets down, playing golf or doing other things will be able to do so when the level editor launches.
Lastly, Final Fantasy XV Comrades is set to gain a standalone edition this summer, which will be followed up by a summer and winter multiplayer update.
