Final Fantasy XV’s First Story DLC Features Gilgamesh

December 14, 2016Written by Tyler Treese

Square Enix has managed to avoid talking about specifics when it comes to Final Fantasy XV‘s upcoming downloadable content, but we’re finally starting to learn more. The latest batch of information comes from a special edition book that was given to fans that includes an interview with the game’s DLC producer Haruyoshi Sawatari. In the book, it reveals that the game’s first DLC, which is called Episode Gladio, will feature the return of classic Final Fantasy villain Gilgamesh.

Here’s what Final Fantasy XV‘s DLC producer Haruyoshi Sawatari says about Episode Gladio in the book via Mrhappy1227’s video:

“For example, in Episode Gladio, you’re able to go into areas that cannot be entered in the main game. In this the player confronts an enemy called Gilgamesh, who can only be seen in Episode Gladio.”

Episode Gladio will be one of the four upcoming story-focused additions for the role-playing game. Each expansion will allow players to control a main character from Noctis’ party, and will help fill in different parts of the game’s narrative. For example, Episode Gladio takes place during a part in the game where Gladio departs from the party. Hopefully this will please some of the fans that have found Square Enix’s latest JRPG to be lacking in the story department.

Does this news of Gilgamesh being a major player in the upcoming DLC make you more excited to check out Final Fantasy XV‘s Episode Gladio? Let us know in the comments below if you’ll be picking it up once it releases in 2017.
