Final Fantasy 15 DLC Episode Ignis Release Date Announced; Has Multiple Endings
Ignis finally gets the spotlight he deserves in Final Fantasy XV's upcoming DLC chapter.
New Final Fantasy XV DLC is coming soon featuring everyone's favorite chef (and boat captain), Ignis. As part of Sony's Paris Games Week pre-show, the company revealed that Episode Ignis launches on December 13, 2017.
Episode Ignis follows previous DLC chapters dedicated to party members Gladio and Prompto. The release date was revealed alongside news that Yasunori Mitsuda (of Chrono Trigger fame) will serve as the composer. We also got a new trailer (above) that showed what appeared to be a meeting between a young Ignis and Prompto. Later, it transitions to the character driving a boat through a warzone before he gets into combat. There are also some hints of what the story will entail; you may want to avoid the trailer if you haven't yet finished the main game.
A Square Enix press release adds that Ravus will fight alongside Ignis, whose "spelldaggers can be imbued with elemental properties, and his unique ability 'Total Clarity' allows him to target and attack multiple enemies at once." Additionally, there will be "multiple" endings. It will be priced at $5 and is included as part of the season pass.
Also on the way for Final Fantasy XV is the Comrades DLC, which will introduce an online multiplayer component. It was recently delayed until November to allow for "final adjustments and to create the best possible experience," according to Square Enix.
The new details regarding Ignis were just one of numerous things shared as part of Sony's Paris Games Week showcase. We also got a new look at The Last of Us Part II and God of War.
