As part of Sony’s Paris Games Week, Square Enix has revealed details about Episode Ignis , the last story DLC announced for Final Fantasy XV . Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis launches on Dec. 13 of this year, so get your recipes ready and sharpen those chef knives. The standalone DLC will be available for $4.99 via the Xbox Games store or the PlayStation store. It’s also part of the Season Pass.

Episode Ignis is the final story DLC after Episode Gladio and Episode Prompto. It follows Ignis’ story after Noctis falls unconscious at the end of the Trial of Leviathan. “Ignis faces his own fight on the streets of Altissia, driven by his unwavering dedication to protect Noctis at all costs,” states the Square Enix press release.

Yasunori Mitsuda, the composer of Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger and Xenogears, will be the guest composer of Episode Ignis.

A new trailer showed a meeting between what appears to be a young Ignis and Prompto. Later we see Ignis driving a boat through a warzone, then entering combat. There are hints as to the story, so spoiler warning for the trailer below:

In a press release, Square Enix confirmed that Ravus will be available as a companion during Episode Ignis, similar to Cor during Episode Gladiolus and Aranea in Episode Prompto. “Ravus will join forces with Ignis, putting allegiances aside in order to save the ones they care about,” states the press release. Ravus is hopig to recue his sister Lunafreya and teams up with Ignis despite being high commander of the Niflheim Empire. An intriguing character many fans have been hoping to see more of, Ravus makes an exciting DLC even more highly anticipated.

Unlike the previous story DLC, Episode Ignis features multiple endings. As far as combat, Ignis will use spelldaggers that are “imbued with elemental properties” as well as the unique ability “Total Clarity” That allows him to target and attack multiple enemies at once.

Next up for Final Fantasy XV is the Comrades DLC, the multiplayer expansion that promises players the ability to create their own avatars and work together to take down targets. It was recently delayed.

Also discussed during Sony’s Paris Games Week showcase? The Last of Us Part II, God of War and more.

Final Fantasy XV
Combat, Plot, Characters Create Something Flawed, Beautiful, Fantastic
Despite it's flaws, Final Fantasy XV is a milestone achievement: not just for being completed, but for being completed with polish, aplomb and love.
  • Engaging main cast of characters
  • Fun, fast-paced combat
  • A massive, beautiful world to explore
  • The Regalia!
  • Continuous updates have addressed some shortcomings of the initial release
  • Major aspects of the story feel rushed or absent, particularly toward the end of the game
  • Stealth sequences feel out of place
