Today, the video game publisher and developer Square Enix confirmed the release date of Final Fantasy 15‘s Episode Prompto DLC for later this month on June 27, 2017. The news regarding the expansion came about in a rather unorthodox way, as the launch time for the add-on popped up during an E3 2017 trailer for FF15 Universe – that is, a sub-franchise that collects different games, DLC, films, and more related to the title – which also detailed a lot more to come to the RPG sequel as “the universe keeps expanding.”
As seen below in the Final Fantasy 15 Universe trailer, other than the release date for Episode Prompto, there are no new assets on display, as the latest video only rehashes previously-seen content from the DLC’s teaser clip from a while back. However, FF 15 is also set to receive a new update in June called “Regalia Type-D” that offers some vehicular off-roading. Not to mention, Square Enix also hinted at a mobile experience called King’s Knight: Wrath of the Dark Dragon on the way for Android and iOS devices.
Of course, it’s already known that Final Fantasy 15 received an update for the PS4 Pro in order to take full advantage of its hardware capabilities, but Square Enix wanted to ensure Microsoft fans that the RPG will cater toward the new Xbox One X as well. So, the trailer above also states that FF 15 supports “Project Scorpio,” which was the original code name for the enhanced Xbox system.
Circling back to Episode Prompto, since Final Fantasy 15 already released Episode Gladiolus and has another standalone story on deck starring everyone’s favorite shutterbug companion, fans should also look forward to Episode Ignis as well. Not to mention, developers have been asking for fans’ input on story DLC, so it’s quite possible that there are far more expansions to come in Final Fantasy 15 beyond those for Noctis and his pals.
