Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn Coming This March – The Last in the FFXV Saga
Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn Coming This March
Not many people expected the Final Fantasy XV saga to go on this long, and it was supposed to go on even longer as some DLC episodes ended up being cancelled. Now, we have the final piece of the saga called Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn coming in March 2019.
Keeping in line with the promotional material for Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix has released a short 15-minute prologue anime for the upcoming DLC story that you can check out at the top of this post. Personally, I love Ardyn but didn’t really understand his motives. With this DLC episode, it’s going to become clearer for everyone.
If you haven’t played Final Fantasy XV, there will be spoilers from this point onwards. Ardyn is actually revealed to be Ardyn Lucis Caelum, a member of Noctis’ royal bloodline who becomes immortal after being infected by the Starscourge, the plague that allows daemons to roam the world. Ardyn seeks revenge upon the royal family for an unspecified reason in the main game. Once Noctis is born, Ardyn completely seeks to destroy him. The anime prologue gives more insight into how exactly Ardyn’s descent into madness began, and it’s quite tragic, to say the least.
Since Final Fantasy XV launched in 2016, it has received a slew of improvements as well as additional story and multiplayer DLC that fleshes out the storyline even further. While it’s not my preferred way to experience a narrative, it’s cool that Square Enix didn’t totally abandon the game considering it had a very rocky development.
Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn DLC will be coming this 26th March 2019.
Pokdepinion: I’m not a fan of experiencing stories this way but just because it’s Episode Ardyn, I’d give it a go. Hopefully, it will be a good one.
