Square Enix updated Final Fantasy XV‘s official page with some information on the upcoming Episode Gladiolus DLC that will be released for the game.

Before you read the snippets below, keep in mind that it includes spoilers on the story of the main game, so just skip it if you haven’t played it yet. On top of the story info, we also learn the stand-alone price for those who don’t intend to purchase the Season Pass: $4.99

“Gladio, one of the three faithful comrades who accompany Noctis on his journey will become a playable character for the very first time in his own episode with a completely different type of gameplay and an all-new story.

Picking up from the events from the group’s encounter with Ravus, Gladio leaves the group to train alongside Cor and become even more powerful. He sets on a path to face challenges by encountering larger than life monsters along the way.

Episode Gladiolus will be available by itself for $4.99 and is included for Season Pass owners.”

We also get the confirmation that all the DLC from now on will also be sold separately, for those who don’t care to grab the Season Pass. That said, no pricing information beyond Episode Gladiolus was provided.

“FFXV Episode Gladiolus,” “FFXV Episode Ignis,” “FFXV Episode Prompto,” and “FFXV Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades” will be sold as individual DLC. More information to be revealed at a later date.”

Episode Gladiolus will be available on March 28th on the PlayStation and Xbox Stores, and Square Enix plans to also release an update during the same time frame, including improvements to chapter 13.

Below you can check out a few screenshots of the DLC, alongside two pieces of concept art.
