Final Fantasy 15 was one of the most highly anticipated video games of 2016. Even after its release it continues to impress fans as the details of their new DLC was just announced. The Episode Gladiolus DLC has lots of new things to play with, especially for season pass holders.
Technology has progressed so much and there are so many things game developers can look into. If not for the VR technology and the upgrades in graphics and gaming consoles, it is the game itself. Now a game is not limited by its initial release since there are expansions and DLCs that can be downloaded to continue the gaming experience.
A New Story To Play in Final Fantasy XV
For those who managed to finish the game right away, this is a godsend. According to Tech Times, Episode Gladiolus will focus on the party’s strongman. The DLC will feature an episode that has an all-new story and a different type of gameplay. However, it is still unclear on how different it will be from the main Final Fantasy 15 game.
According to the official FF15 website, the DLC takes place in the timeline of the main game’s story. Gladiolus leaves the group to receive training to improve his strength and skills. This episode shows players what he did during his time off from the team.
According to Polygon, this is the first of many. In fact, the game director Hajime Tabata discussed how he doesn’t want the game to stop with the main story. He said, “I want it to be something that users can enjoy for years to come,” – highlighting the fact that Square Enix is always looking for new ways to play a game and this may mean Final Fantasy 15 is far from over.
How To Get It Final Fantasy XV Episode Gladiolus
Episode Gladiolus will be available for purchase as a standalone expansion for just $4.99. Season Pass holders are the lucky ones as they will get the DLC for free. It does not stop there, Season Pass holders also get Episode Prompto, Episode Ignis, and the Comrades multiplayers expansion as well.
The multiplayer expansion is one of the game features that players look most forward to. Players can play as the game’s main team with their friends and experience the game together. This is more exciting now that the developers are trying to allow players to create their own avatars.
It is hard to say if this is the same way the next game installment will be like since Square Enix likes to take the next step. Players who want the new DLC can download and purchase it on March 28. Just like what Tabata said, there will be more episodes to follow, but there is no news on them yet.
