During a panel at Pax East 2018, Square Enix announced a bunch of updates that will be coming to Final Fantasy XV.
First up, there are four new downloadable content episodes planned for 2019 with the concept, “a future everyone longed for”. The theme of this upcoming DLC will be “an alternate grand finale” where “our heroes will challenge their fates in order to realize the ideal future they’ve envisioned”.
Episode I: Ardyn “The Conflict of the Sage” (Working Title) (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” (Working Title) (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” (Working Title) (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” (Working Title) (Spring 2019) – Parting ways with the Astrals, Noctis embarks upon his final battle in order to attain the ideal future for all his people.
A standalone version of the Final Fantasy XV add-on, “Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades”, is set to release in the summer of this year. An update for the multiplayer game will also arrive in summer followed by a second update in winter.
A collaboration with Shadow of the Tomb Raider was also announced at the event.
