During today’s Square Enix Presents broadcast from the show floor of E3 in Los Angeles, Square Enix revealed the first gameplay of the Episode Prompto story DLC.

Interestingly, the gameplay is completely different from both the original Final Fantasy XV, and from the Episode Gladiolus DLC. It’s actually more akin to a third-person shooter.

Interestingly, the DLC will take about two hours to complete just the main story, but on top of that Prompto will be able to take on missions that will take even longer. There will also be time attack mode, and extra gameplay that can be tackled after the DLC is completed.

During Prompto’s adventure, he’ll be able to pick up different weapons from defeated enemies, including machine guns and bazookas.

You can check it out in the video below, and if you want to see more, you can check out some screenshots, and a trailer featuring composer Naoshi Mizuta,who composed two tracks for the DLC, including the main theme.

Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One. Episode Prompto will release on June 27th for both platforms.
