Square Enix’s support for Final Fantasy 15 has been nothing short of impressive, with the game getting regular new content since its late 2016 launch. It appears we’ve only scratched the surface of what they have in store, as now the company has announced a new set of four DLCs that are on the horizon.
The company announced the DLC set called The Dawn of the Future at PAX East 2018, revealing that it will contain four DLC packs that will release in 2019. The developer revealed that this content is being released to realize “a future everyone longed for.” What’s interesting to note here is that they mentioned an “alternate grand finale” where the game’s characters will challenge their fates in order “to realize the ideal future they envisioned.”
The following is a complete overview of all four of the DLCs that will be included in the Dawn of the Future DLC set:
- Episode I: Ardyn “The Conflict of the Sage” (Working Title) (Winter 2019) – 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” (Working Title) (Spring 2019) – 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” (Working Title) (Spring 2019) – 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” (Working Title) (Spring 2019) – Parting ways with the Astrals, Noctis embarks upon his final battle in order to attain the ideal future for all his people.
This isn’t all that will be on the way for the game, as the company also announced that they’re planning to release a standalone version of the multiplayer expansion Comrades this summer. The multiplayer expansion will also be receiving an update in the summer, followed by another in the winter.
Final Fantasy 15 Windows Edition is also set to receive a mod organizer (with Steam Workshop support), avatar creation for the main story mode and user treasure this spring. A level editor is currently in development, set for release this fall.
There’s obviously tons of content on the horizon for Final Fantasy 15 fans, and we’ll be sure to bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.
