Square Enix have today announced the release date for their upcoming Episode Ardyn DLC for Final Fantasy XV.

Episode Ardyn will be available for purchase on March 26th. Here is the official DLC description.

In FINAL FANTASY XV: EPISODE ARDYN players can experience a brand new storyline from the perspective of Ardyn Lucis Caelum. Set 35 years before the events of FINAL FANTASY XV, follow the notorious villain through being freed from an extra-long life of imprisonment and entering the world of darkness, to seeking vengeance against the Lucian royal family.

Players can utilise Ardyn’s villainous powers that can devastate his enemies in demonic ways, as well as fly freely across the map, quickly moving around Insomnia by Shadow-Stepping to map points. Fans of FINAL FANTASY XV will also enjoy encountering familiar faces, albeit younger versions than have been seen before as well as exciting and essential new characters such as the scientist Verstael Besithia and the priestess Aera Mirus Fleuret.

Fans can watch the DLC’s prologue, which is an animated short that serves as a prequel. Take a look and let us know if you’re looking forward to this DLC via the comment section below.
