During PAX East 2018, Square Enix shared a number of details about the future of Final Fantasy XV.
Kicking things off will be four new DLC releases under the title of “The Dawn of the Future” that will focus on Ardyn, Aranea, Lunafreya, and Noctis. An overview of each DLC episode (via Gematsu) can be found below:
- 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.
As well as the above content, the character customization tool for Comrades will be made available in the single-player campaign and a standalone version of Comrades will also be released. The Comrades standalone release will be accompanied by two major updates in summer and winter.
Another interesting announcement was the upcoming addition of a treasure hunting feature that will allow players to hide treasure somewhere in the world for players to find. The longer the treasure goes undiscovered the greater the rewards inside.
Finally, Square Enix announced that collaboration will be happening with Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but no details were shared.
