See the game’s main antagonist in action below:

Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn releases on March, 2019 as a downloadable content for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The base game is also available on the aforementioned platforms.

    Finally we can see Insomnia not destroyed! I wonder how much of it is explorable though.

  • •december

    I’m pretty sure a lot of concepts from Episode Luna, Noct and Aranea will be thrown into Ardyn. Or else, I’m calling a sequel…

  • Justice V

    Looks pretty awesome. Seems like it’ll end up being the longest of the episodes especially now that the others are cancelled.

  • Artemis Polara

    That’s speculation. It might be the biggest in exploration hopefully. Perhaps a combination of the scale of Episode Prompto and the city aspect of Episode Ignis. Though I suspect it’ll be a repaired version of the Royal Edition Insomnia.

  • Justice V

    Yeah def speculation. But with Prompto being longer than Gladio, and Ignis being longer than ep Prompt would make sense that Ardyn is even longer than both. The cinematics shown in the trailer already show quite a bit of variety in location and time.

    Yeah most likely same Insomnia that already exists, geographically if nothing else.

  • Artemis Polara

    though a good chunk of it is gonna be relegated to an anime special. (So Ardyn is getting the Brotherhood treatment)

  • Alekber Aliev

    Final Fantasy…ummm… versusXV?…

  • Artemis Polara

    You’re assuming they don’t just scrap it altogether.

  • Xion

    Sasuke is cannon LOL

  • NoctLightCloud

    I really hope we’ll get a XV sequel. I am unsatisfied with the story and would love it to be fixed, cause I like the XV universe.

  • Mehmed

    CANCELLED!

  • •december

    Luminous Studios keeps throwing the “AAA title” in the works that they hope FFXV fans will look forward to. It could be 15-related, it will be without Tabata

  • •december

    japanese voice actor lol

  • •december

    it was a shit-storm of news hahahha, I really don’t know what to think anymore. I’m only interested in Episode Ardyn none of the other stuff is interesting right now

  • •december

    It could be done.
    that is… if they’re clever
    and make Episode Ardyn OPEN ENDED / Cliffhanger like the FFXV main story seemed to be.

  • Ryuke

    This is how I wanted the Episode DLC to start after XV was launched. I know it’s said over and over but it feels like a year was wasted doing Episode Gladio, Prompto and Ignis with sections taken out of the main game. Had they been in the game as clearly they were originally intended, we could have had this as the first DLC. That’s exactly what I expect when I think of DLC, stuff that adds onto the experience telling a story set before, during, or after the main story. Companion pieces. This “prequel” piece looks great and would have totally satisfied me as the first piece of season pass DLC to begin with last year.

    In fact, all of the planned Episodes which are now scrapped for this year would have been great additions last year. I think two years work of Episodes with what would have been two season passes was way too excessive.

  • 固茹で

    Totally agree. I was also really looking forward to episode Noctis..I’m pretty gutted now. Wonder if they’ll release a true edition of FFVX with all DLC on disc and the bros episodes fitted back into the actual game.

  • Mehmed

    Maybe as a Remaster for the PS5 but i’m not very sure about that now.

  • Noctis

    Yeah me too actually, I hoped really that maybe Episode Noctis would help the game…..This is just sad. I feel like I waited for nothing now

  • Thom Kristiansen

    Ugh.. Empty anime bullsh*t.

    I hope FF16 looks back at the golden era of 1-12.

  • Iggy

    What the hell are you talking about?

    The bros’ sections weren’t “cut” from the game. In point of fact, when XV shipped they haven’t even *started* working on Gladio’s yet. All they had was concept art.

  • Iggy

    What other stuff? XD

  • •december

    comrades i lost interest in, it had hope but meh… ff14 crossover? you mean the OTHER game Square Enix almost failed completely with… ugh where to start. lol

  • Artemis Polara

    Did you follow anything related to A Realm Reborn and onward?

  • SNK

    XII? LOL

  • Randy Marsh

    Hey people are starting to say XII was the golden era?! Whoa, what’s going on?! When did this start being consider a thing? Am I no longer an outcast for liking FFXII finally?!

  • •december

    Ryuke means Episode Gladio, Prompto and Ignis are selections from within the main game’s story which in other Final Fantasy title would’ve been part of the game, not served up as DLC.

    It’s not a matter or what was finished at release or not, because all this extra junk DLC / collabs should have been scrapped in favour in polishing the core game.

    Episode Ignis had an alternative ending, which could have been accessed in the main title screen, while all the other DLC should have been actual parts of XV’s story.

  • •december

    It’s a shame all this news of cancellation over-shadows Episode Ardyn’s new trailer…
    honestly

  • Ryuke

    Thanks, that’s exactly what I meant. I really couldn’t be bothered to go into that discussion again so saved me a job.

  • stevenm281

    Nyx can’t be there, he’s a 20 something years old in the game time period, and this DLC occurs 30 years before Kingsglaive, so Nyx isn’t born yet.

  • stevenm281

    Golden era was PS1 btw, even confirmed by Square Enix themselves.

    But to me, golden era was FF4 until FF9.

  • •december

    the DLC does indeed start 30 years before, but doesn’t mean the entire thing is 30 years before…

    King Regis looks the same age as when, in Episode Ignis, young Ignis met young Noctis… and Ignis is not 30 years old lol
    that’s only reason why I said that.

    I’d like to see younger Weskham, Clarus and Cor and co!

  • stevenm281

    I think the 30 years is a rough approximate.

    Either that, or Regis model ain’t ready and this one is a placeholder, Regis is supposed to be 20 yo here.

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    After the A Realm Reborn relaunch, FFXIV was vastly improved and is now immensely popular, winning multiple Best MMO and even a Best Game award.

  • NoctLightCloud

    My heart just got cancelled!

  • stevenm281

    the Ignis alternate ending could have been put in NG+ only, while the main content of the episode could be integrated in the main game scenario.

  • Noctis

    How does younger regis fight Ardyn in this dlc.

    But in the movie he doesn`t remember him at all
