For a game released in 2016, Square Enix sure are investing more money into it even three years after launch. The company recently announced Final Fantasy XV will be getting four more DLCs in the next year, all of which will provide story.

Square Enix announced four additional DLCs will be coming to Final Fantasy XV in 2019. All of them will be story centric DLCs much like the already existing Episode Prompto, Ignis and Gladiolus. The names of the new episodes are all tentatively titled so much can change in terms of name, but they will all provide an alternate ending to the game's original ending.

The first episode will focus on Ardyn, the game's primary antagonist, and will be titled The Conflict of the SageIt will focus on Ardyn's past some 2000 years back. Players will finally be able to step into the shoes of the villain, but we can expect the gameplay to be similar, as Ardyn and Noctis have very similar abilities.
