BEACON TRANSCRIPT – The developers of Final Fantasy XV revealed that some story-driven downloadable content packs (DLC) will soon be released. They even revealed some information regarding one of the packs, namely Episode Gladiolus.
As the name suggests, this DLC pack will feature the adventures of Noctis’ close companion, Gladiolus Amicitia. A post on their website revealed that Episode Gladiolus would feature the powerful fighter who chose to separate from his friends for a period of time, in an attempt to become stronger.
As part of this attempt, he will start training with Cor Leonis, but the greatest challenges will be posed by several face-to-face combats with powerful enemies. As a hint, one of the enemies that Gladiolus will have to face is quite well-known to long time fans of the Final Fantasy franchise.
VG24/7 have recently revealed a report where they stated that the special edition of a book featuring the game would be available and it contained some commentaries from the producer Haruyoshi Sawatari. According to the report, Sawatari revealed in the book that the Final Fantasy XV players who would purchase Episode Gladiolus might encounter an enemy called Gilgamesh while playing the DLC.
If you do not know who Gilgamesh is, he is a sword hunter that was present in several installments of the Final Fantasy series. He played different roles throughout the development of the game. At times, he acted as an ally, but at other times he could prove a mysterious and tremendous enemy.
In the Final Fantasy installment in question, Gilgamesh appears to play the role of the enemy again. Make sure you purchase the game and the DLC, since the combat between him and Gladiolus promises to be one no fan should miss.
Also, Episode Gladiolus is expected to present a whole new different gameplay, which should make everything more exciting and should kindle the interest of the players.
The DLC is set to be released on March 28th, but more details regarding it are soon to come. However, some information regarding the price and the way of purchase are already available. The players will be able to purchase the DLC on its own for $4.99 or they can get it as part of Final Fantasy XV’s season pass.
