Square Enix has revealed Final Fantasy XV's antagonist in action in the game's latest trailer for the upcoming Episode Ardyn DLC.

November 8, 2018

During Square Enix’s worldwide Final Fantasy XV broadcast, we learned a ton of new information about the Final Fantasy that never seems to go away. A new trailer for Episode Ardyn was revealed and you can check it out down below.

An animated cinematic called Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn – Prologue will launch sometime before the DLC becomes available. Episode Ardyn will give players more background on the game’s antagonist.

While Ardyn’s uses what looks to be the same powers as Noctis, he moves around in a much more eerie way, surrounded by a thick black mist. Episode Ardyn will launch in March of 2019.


In regards to any other story related content in the future Square had this to say:

“The Final Fantasy XV journey will conclude next year with the release of Episode Ardyn.

We learned more information in regards to the future of Final Fantasy XV and the long-teased second season of DLC. The biggest news is that Hajime Tabata, the game’s late director after Tetsuya Nomura, will be leaving Square Enix to start his own game studio. With that, three out of the four additional DLC episodes have been canceled.

Additionally, Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades will launch as a standalone game on December 12 for PS4 and Xbox One. Finally, the world of XV will be crossing over with Final Fantasy XIV in a free update to the game coming in December.

Final Fantasy XV is available now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
