Final Fantasy XV Getting 4 New DLC Episodes In 2019
At PAX East Square Enix revealed the new content roadmap coming to Final Fantasy XV which largely centered around the PC version of the game. But aside from mods, Square Enix also revealed the remaining Episodes story DLC coming to the game, including the long rumored Luna story DLC.
Square Enix also detailed the four Episode story DLCs for Final Fantasy XV. These are the story-driven DLC that explore stories set in Final Fantasy XV through the perspective of one of the other characters. The first year of Story DLCs focused on Noctis’ entourage, but 2019’s episode list expands the character roster. The four episodes slated for 2019 are:
- Episode I: Ardyn – “The Conflict of the Sage”
- This story portrays the struggles of Ardyn. Witness the resentment he harbored towards Lucis for over 2000 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”
- The story 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.

This wouldn’t be the first time Final Fantasy XV has toyed with the concept of alternate realities. Episode Ignis, released back in December, presented a dramatically different fate for Noctis than the main campaign.
The episodes will all be released in 2019 and will also feature a new theme by composer Yoko Shimomura. Square Enix will release more details later this year.
