There’s plenty more Final Fantasy 15 to come, publisher Square Enix announced during a PAX East panel at the weekend.
Four more DLC episodes will launch throughout the first half of 2019, following further updates to the game’s co-operative multiplayer Comrades mode this year.
Episodes centring on Ardyn, Aranea, Luna and Noctis will arrive in early 2019, dripfed out until the start of next summer.
Comrades, meanwhile, will get a standalone release and its character customisation will be carried over the main game campaign.
From slides shown during the panel, 2019’s four story episodes were detailed thus:
Episode I: Ardyn – “The Conflict of the Sage”
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”
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”
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”
Parting ways with the Astrals, Noctis embarks upon his final battle in order to attain the ideal future for all his people.
Final Fantasy 15 has already had a decent dollop of DLC, and what seemed like a complete (at the time) Royal Edition re-release. The description of 2019’s final Noctis episode, though, suggests this is now finally the final lot.
