Final Fantasy XV gets an alternate ending with new DLC episodes in 2019

final fantasy xv alternate ending dlc 2019

Final Fantasy XV launched on PC a month ago, including a host of new features and all the DLC in order to make it the definitive version of the game. Now that moniker gets a bit more complicated, as Square Enix have detailed the next year of extra episodes for the game, including a new, alternate ending to the game.

Check out our Final Fantasy XV PC performance review.

According to a PAX panel (captured by ResetEra), the new DLC begins launching in 2019, starting with an episode all about FF15’s least trustable dude. The fourth episode is due by the end of Spring, starring Noctis and adding an alternate ending.

  • 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.

The focus for the remainder of 2018 is on the Comrades multiplayer expansion, set to launch in standalone form this summer with one update following shortly after and another set for the winter. (It’s a pretty entertaining Monster Hunter-like, if you haven’t played it.)

Also on the cards is some sort of Shadow of the Tomb Raider crossover (per IGN), though there are no details on this bit just yet. Given the precedent set by earlier collaborations with Half-Life and Assassin’s Creed, it’s sure to be wild.
