Think the Final Fantasy XV story is over just because a few new editions have been released? Oh no, the story of our faithful band of heroes isn't over by a long shot. In fact, new episodes were unveiled at PAX East, which will have Square Enix's RPG rolling all the way through 2019.

According to IGN, the episodes will reveal an alternate future for the game's characters, showing a different ending that the characters had all hoped for over the case of the actual story.

The DLC timeline includes the following, taken verbatim from the PAX East panel:

  • Episode Ardyn: This story portrays the struggles of Ardyn. Witness the resentment he harbored towards Lucis for over 2000 years, and his clashes with the Astrals.
  • Episode Aranea: A side-story about the Starscourge depicted from the Niflheim's perspective. The final day of the Empire turns out to be Aranea's worst day.
  • Episode Lunafreya: This story's about Luna's fate, which not even death can free her from. Her battle to save the one she loves overturns the destiny dealt to the Lucian King.
  • Episode Noctis: Parting ways with the Astrals, Noctis embarks upon his final battle in order to attain the ideal future for all his people.

This follows the DLC already released for Prompto, Gladio, and Ignis. Look for more details on these new DLC episodes to be revealed later this year.
