Looks great, still waiting for the game to be completed before I replay. Completed in the sense not updated anymore (singleplayer content wise).

Looks really great.

Kinda wish this was included in the base game. The story really had an amazing potencial if told correctly from the get go...

I see.

I still think it's a bit weird tho since we have a canon story and ending for XV.
Ah but you see, this is where the timeline SPLITS! If Ignis accepts Ardyn's offer, he eventually defeats him with the power of the ring and takes his place as the demon ruler of the world.

Imagine a very evil-looking Ignis sitting on the Lucis throne.

Ok, ok, I'll get the Season Pass now, Square-Enix. Episode Ignis, in concept, sounded like the worst/least interesting out of the bunch. Somehow, that trailer makes it look like the most interesting one! What a weird turnaround!

This looks so good! I can't wait to play this! His gameplay style is what I imagined it would be from one of the key arts they released years ago.

Man, that trailer was pure hype. I was initial gonna wait till next year to play through FFXV again with all the updates & DLC, but with this new episode & the multiplayer expansion coming pretty soon I might have to come back sooner than expected.

I need Tabata to add the DLCs to the main game asap. He said he didn’t plan on it, but it needs to happen. This is the level of escalation and character development the midgame needed. Tabata did Ignis so dirty.

Maybe modders will do it instead.

Seeing Luna's corpse broke my heart ;(.
She was always a pure and saintly-like character for me that suffered but didn't get her happy end in her life.

Also lol, seeing Ignis jumping on the roofs while seeing (naked) Titan in the background reminded me on Attack on Titan XD

Still need to finish Episode Prompto before it, dropped it somewhere in the open world area.

Looks great, though. Bummer that still no new "news" for comrades, but eh

I wonder if they are going to show Pryna in the game because the paper said she died with Luna.

looks very good. I am curious how the gameplay works out, and wow... Titan smashing Niflheim airships was surprising!

I could see this being done for the Gladio and Prompto episodes but as I mentioned earlier, adding the Ignis episode just after chapter 9 could be a bit of a problem.

The true intentions of Ravus are revealed later in the game

But who knows. Maybe it will be better executed in the DLC and could serve as a more effective reveal than the one in the main game.

I wonder what kind of experimental gameplay they'll go for in this ep. Metal Prom Solid was really fun! Gladio's weird action stuff really grated on me though.
Though I'm sure not many people used magic due to the whole friendly fire aspect. I'd enjoy just being able to finally use that system with Ignis without frying any of the other bros.

I'm playing everything again after this is out.
Last time I played it was when I finished it in December last year.

If you want a better magic system (own set of buttons, no friendly fire, MP-based instead of being consumable), check out the Comrades Multiplayer Expansion coming November 7. Can be played singleplayer too (no PS+ subscription necessary, afaik).

Oh, yeah I've heard of that! I didn't know it had a changed magic system, though. I have the season pass so I'll look into it when it's out.

At work so cannot watch the trailer (or use the apostrophe key and thus, contractions) but it sounds great. My boy Ravus getting center stage. Well, center-right. Next to the guy in the center.

Oh shit, the DLC leaks were true, after all! Can anyone find the link to that again?

It's going to be very hard to top Episode Prompto which I regard as one of the best DLC pieces ever produced.

I look forward to this ride all the same however.

This looks so great! I don't buy DLC often, but I've really loved the FFXV DLC. As long as it's not crazy buggy like the Assassin's Creed thingy, we're golden.

This looks really good, but I'll probably wait until the game is 100% done until I play it. It's gonna be real interesting replaying the game with all the stuff they'll add to it.

Multiple endings? Can they mean...

Ignis won't be blinded in one ending and will affect the rest of XV's Chapter 11-14?

Now that I think about it, I really hope Ignis’ combat has a few of the tweaks present in Comrades that makes those characters feel better.

Possibility. Though I don't know if it would be the latter. When Ardyn asks Ignis to join them, you could be given the option to have his eye sight spared, and abandoning Noctis vs. Ignis sacrificing his eye sight to protect him, thus determining the ending to the episode.

Random thought: Was I the only one who thought "multiple endings" meant for the full game? After watching today's trailer, it just reminds me
how sad the original ending is :/
. Also, I hope they emphasize the relationship between Ravus and Luna. These are two important characters here with no foundation and little screen-time. I want to learn more about them.

Honestly, they really don't have to do it. Just make a nice screen with each Episodes' key art at the end of Chapter 6, 9, and 12 telling fans they can now check out the respective Episodes (Gladio for 6, Ignis for 9, Prompto for 12) in the Special section from the Main Menu.

Looking forward to play more ffxv. Prompto's dlc was great. Love this game and the soundtrack.

Did anybody notice the game has VR support? I wonder how it will be implemented, only cutscenes? Or also the gameplay... Hmm... this will be interesting.

This looks like the most interesting of the four episodes. My fingers are still crossed that Square Enix finds a way to properly integrate all the DLC at some point in the future to make one cohesive package.

Timely, I just beat FF15 this weekend.

Ignis wasn’t favorite of the lot, so I’ll likely just skip to this one - unless there are some solid story moments in either the last two? Gladiolus wasn’t that interesting to me but maybe Prompto.

Either way, I’m down for Ignis though I don’t understand why you need to have beaten the full game to play these. Considering how few people do finish games, their completion of these episodes must be terrible on the backend

If not now theyre definitely doing a second ending with some ruined world episode or something. Im guessing the second batch of dlc will be episode kingsglaive, episode brotherhood (with adult regis), episode ardyn and the big one will be the dark world.
I wonder whats the news on them adding all these characters to the main game. Pretty sure they mentioned that as a plan.including the custom character.

Looks great, held off on the other DLCs as well.
Might stick around for Comrades and be done with XV on PS4, as for the rest I'll get it on PC when it comes out.
