Given the length and scope of the development cycle for Final Fantasy XV, the game has still continued to be supported for some time since it first released in fall 2016. However, with recent development changes on the project in the past several months, the release of Episode Ardyn this week is bringing with it the end of major DLC for Final Fantasy XV, and a new trailer seems like it is ending with a bang.
A new trailer has been released by Square Enix for Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn, which gives players an in-depth look at the eagerly-anticipated DLC content that gives players a new story behind Ardyn. A full description for the episode can be found below from Square Enix:
“For the first time, players take control of Noctis’s greatest foe in this brand-new episode of FINAL FANTASY XV! Delve into the dark tale of scorned savior Ardyn Lucis Caelum and unravel the secrets surrounding his mysterious past.”
Episode Ardyn was originally meant to the first of a whole new set of story expansions for Final Fantasy XV after the game’s original plans for post-launch DLC. However, with the departure of Hajime Tabata from Square Enix and Luminous Productions, three of the four new DLC episodes were cancelled, leaving Episode Ardyn the only episode to be released from the new set of story content.
Final Fantasy XV is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with Episode Ardyn now available on those platforms as well. For a closer look at the episode (and FFXV‘s final piece of DLC), you can check out the launch trailer below:
