Square Enix recently unveiled new story DLC for Final Fantasy XV, titled ‘Episode Prompto’, and will be centred around the photographer of the Final Fantasy Backstreet Boys, Prompto.
The news was shortly followed by a couple of trailers and a release date of June 26, 2017. By the looks of the trailer, Prompto finds himself in the arctic to discover the truth behind his origins. Episode Prompto follows the DLC trend of singling out each individual member of the leather-strapped brotherhood as Gladio received his own DLC earlier on in the year. Ignis’ story is set for release sometime later this year.
Final Fantasy XV will also feature PlayStation VR support in September with Monsters of the Deep, a Final Fantasy Virtual Reality fishing game nobody really knew they wanted until now. Seriously, I’m strangely convinced to play this. Last year, a Final Fantasy XV VR trailer was also shown at Sony’s conference that promised Prompto as a playable character, but not much else is known about what exactly happened to that. Probably best for everyone.
Square Enix continues to support Final Fantasy XV with its upcoming June update too, which will introduce the Regalia Type-D, which is basically the off-road version of the Regalia. Can’t wait to turn monsters into roadkill.
Episode Prompto will release on June 26, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
