Final Fantasy XV anime explores Ardyn’s past before the release of Episode Ardyn DLC

The next playable content coming to Final Fantasy XV is Episode Ardyn. Experiencing a story from the perspective of Ardyn Lucis Caelum, players will be taken back 35 years into Final Fantasy XV’s past, before the events of the game. 

Episode Ardyn follows the game’s 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.”

When playing Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn, players will have control of Ardyn’s power by using demonic abilities and flying freely across the map. Ardyn is even able to move around the map with speed, by Shadow Stepping between points.
