Square Enix had previously teased that Final Fantasy XV would continue to expand with new DLC episodes this year. We've now learned what the company has in mind for those additions, but they're unfortunately not coming as soon as expected. A total of four more episodes are on the way, though these won't arrive until sometime in 2019.
The news was shared during a panel at PAX East. Like past episodes, each one will center around a specific character: Ardyn, Aranea, Luna, and Noctis. The last one is the most notable of the bunch, as it will explore the story of his "final battle." Here's how the slides (via ResetEra) presented during the panel describe each of the four:
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.
- 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.
- 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 with the Lucian King.
- Parting ways with the Astrals, Noctis embarks upon his final battle in order to attain the ideal future for all his people.
