The latest updates for "Final Fantasy XV" reveal a new gameplay trailer for the sequel's final DLC story, "Episode Ignis" at Paris Games Week. Players will assume the role of Noctis's friend and ally, Ignis as he tries to save the Crown Prince and Stella Nox Fleuret from the Niflheim Empire. The DLC episode is part of Square Enix's plan to expand the sequel's universe.

The Japanese video game publisher also announced the minimum and recommended requirements to install "Final Fantasy XV" on the PC platform.

Episode Ignis launch date

The events of "Episode Ignis" will take place after the Leviathan's rampage in Altissia as Ignis wakes up in the rubbles of the destroyed city.

The latter will attempt to rescue Noctis before Niflheim soldiers capture him. His gameplay revolves around using magic to enhance his combat skills and attacks.

Ignis can shoot his magic from different weak points that will either kill or stun enemy units within a group. He is also equipped with a grappling hook to travel around buildings and he can drive a speedboat to traverse through the sea. Ignis is joined by Stella's older brother, Ravus as he helps him rescue Noctis and his sister, and escape Altissia.

Video game fans are curious to know the dynamic between Ignis and Ravus as the DLC will reveal their past history together before the events of the main story. Square Enix will launch Episode Ignis in "FFXV" on Dec.


The game publisher will also launch the "Comrades" online multiplayer next month after they changed its Oct. 31 release date.
