The PC mod tools was the last thing I was interested in and they have apparently abandonned that so... I don't really care anymore.

It would be nice if this DLC would allow you to explore Insomnia with noctis too (because Insomnia, or at least living daytime insomnia, not being in the game at all was one of my biggest disappointment with this game) and not just ardyn, like by using Umbra for example to go back in time, but yeah I don't believe that one second.

I have a lot of hype for Ardyn Episode :messenger_smiling_hearts:

Then, I'm very curious to see what they wrote in Novel's alternative stories.

And I'm also curious to see what the latest game updates will be.
(since there will be news about it)

I love the game, and it remains one of the best
Final Fantasy ever made :messenger_smiling_with_eyes:

Finally they can stop expending money on that incomplete and senseless piece of trash and focus on Shadowbringers and a new entry worth of the Final Fantasy name.
Mash X to win garbage vs grinding adventure isn't exactly better. lol.

I did want the second playable continent but it wasn't meant to be.

This is where I'm at with it, too. I wish they'd just release whatever they have finished and let the community tinker around

I like Final Fantasy XV, but the game's story has always been an absolute mess. And, apparently, always will be.

Amen.

Fucking TEN YEARS from announcement to release. Plus another 3 years of content updates. That’s a time span bigger than the launch dates of Final Fantasy 1 through 9.

For fuck’s sake, it’s time to move on. Even if you like the game, just ask yourself, what was the opportunity cost of Final Fantasy XV? What could they have accomplished if they hadn’t spent 13 years attempting to make this into a decent game?

The game was not worked for 10 years, though, the original game was in development hell for a long while.

I’m aware that it wasn’t in full blown development for that entire period.

The fact remains, it’s now been 13 years since it was announced, and by November it’ll officially be the only single-player mainline Final Fantasy game released in the last decade.

I suppose this is kind of obvious but I think FInal Fantasy as a series has standards and expectations that just can't be met anymore. Looking back most of the FF games have amazing music and graphics coupled with some great characters, but on the negative side they often have basic gameplay, confusing stories, and pretty low challenge.. ff15 is kind of the same. I guess I'm just saying that I don't think 15 is any better or worse than 13 or 8 or 5 or 1-3.. maybe even 12 and 7. I couldn't really tell you what the hell happened in 7, I just knew the bad guy was bad and was worth pursuing.

(with audio preview)
- showed the box set of the physical edition of Episode Ardyn Prologue together with Novel
- talked about the collaboration with Final Fantasy XIV
- and showed new character artwork
(like Ardyn, Noctis and Luna, and Aranea)
- and thanked all the fans for their support

Here are the splendid and magnificent artwork :messenger_smiling_hearts:

True, they are truly fantastic artworks :messenger_smiling_hearts:
And I'm already happy, and extremely excited, even in only just seeing these artworks :messenger_smiling:

And tonight I will play Episode Ardyn from the beginning to the end.
While next month I do a third run with Final Fantasy XV :messenger_sunglasses:

Are you a real person or do you work for square? I am no FF15 hater by any means I’ve put over 80 hours into the game and played all the dlc so far.

Baffles my mind how anyone can fanboy over this game. Why explain yourself

Same here, after Episode Ardyn will do my final playthrough of this game to finish everything.
One last trip to the world of Eos before the wait starts for FFVII:Remake.

Is there or will there be a version of the game that contains ALL DLCs, including Ardyn? I bought the game day one and I loved it, but didn't play anything after that waiting for a final collection for the whole experience. Anyone knows?

Nothing's been announced. Doesn't mean it can't happen, but we definitely know that Episode Ardyn will be the final DLC, so buying the Royal Edition + the final episode sounds like what you're after.

There are so many reasons why
I love Final Fantasy XV.

But I'm not going to tell you the story of my long videogame career.
(I have been playing video games for over 30 years now)

So I'll give you a little list:

- I'm a fan of Final Fantasy since Final Fantasy I already
- I like the story of Final Fantasy XV
- I like all the protagonists of Final Fantasy XV
- I like the world of Final Fantasy XV
- I like the narrative universe of all media in Final Fantasy XV
- I love the Final Fantasy XV OST
- I like the gameplay action of Final Fantasy XV
- I love the Lore of Final Fantasy XV
- I like the summon (the Astrals), Gods of Final Fantasy XV
- I love the villan of Final Fantasy XV, Ardyn.
The best villan ever made for a Final Fantasy.
(for me also superior to Kefka of FF VI)
- I love magic, special techniques, secondary characters, minigames, Regalia, Chocobo and Dungeons of Final Fantasy XV.

And so yes.
You can safely consider me a Final Fantasy XV fanboy.
And I'm also honestly proud of it.
(and I consider it, personally, one of the best games of this generation)

So I can give you advice.
Avoid upsetting yourself in the future.
Because there are a lot of fans of Final Fantasy XV in the world, and not just me.
And we honestly consider it a great game and an excellent experience, overall, in the end.

P.S.: I played about over 460 hours of Final Fantasy XV in my two runs with the game.
And very soon I will be very happy to return to the world of Eos to complete my third run.

Isn't that the PC version? I bought it and I have all the DLC's. I'm pretty sure I also get Episode Ardyn when it comes out.

Hating the opinions of others by inventing random reasons is the only way for those who hate the game to throw more mud on the game.
People who live with a basic concept that is profoundly wrong in dealing with a medium like video games.
And that is with free insults.

When the people will begin to accept others' opinions without attacking them or mocking them, the videogame world will become a better place.

P.S.: The game of Final Fantasy XV has a splendid and epic story.

And only blind people, who don't want to see or hear that story, obviously don't see it....

Not just because he doesn't like it, but because they hate it because it's not like they wanted it.......
In a childish attitude of incredible cosmic levels......
(people of infinite sadness)

And this beyond personal tastes.

I don't play on PC so that's out of the question for me, but thanks for the answer.
