Square Enix has definitely given us a treat today! Both the Episode Prompto DLC and the Type-D Regalia Free Update for Final Fantasy XV are available for download right now!
First off, we have the much anticipated Episode Prompto. This DLC allows players to experience a whole new side to the lore of Final Fantasy XV. While not much happened with Prompto during the main storyline, this DLC promises to show you a more human side to Prompto Argentum. It should fill in some of the blanks in the main storyline while introducing a new type of gameplay as well. The episode will feature various game shooter mechanics to FFXV given Prompto’s firearm weapon preference which should give players a whole new experience.
Here is a summary of the features of Episode Prompto:
- A brand-new storyline where Prompto, lost in the wilderness and battling against the Imperial forces, must find his way home and discover the truth about himself in the process
- Fast-paced, third-person gunplay battles featuring a wide variety of weapons, including basic handguns, sniper rifles, flash grenades, bazookas and more
- A new lightning fast snowmobile vehicle can be driven for taking down enemies and perform death-defying jumps while venturing through the wilderness
- Commodore Aranea Highwind and her mighty lance return to journey alongside Prompto
- Selfie Action – Players will have the ability to snap selfies along the way, carrying over Prompto’s Snapshot skill from the main game
All this will be available to everyone who bought the Final Fantasy XV Season Pass and also to those who buy the episode separately (available as a standalone package for $4.99 via the PlayStation Store and the XBox Games store)
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
A FREE update will also be available for everyone (who has FFXV) today to upgrade the Regalia to the new Type-D model. The upgrade can be done at Hammerhead and will allow you to take the Regalia off-road! Now you can explore the lands of FFXV within the comfort of the Regalia. Not only that, you can also enjoy some new Episode Prompto theme tracks in the Regalia as well!
