Final Fantasy XV DLC Lets You Play as Other Characters

While Final Fantasy XV will have you exclusively play as main man Noctis, Square Enix will be releasing DLC that lets you take control of his friends.

The idea of only being able to play as one character in an RPG may be off-putting to some. Why introduce a whole party of awesome bad-asses if we’re stuck playing as only one of them? That’s very much the case with the upcoming Final Fantasy XV, which has players take control of the runaway prince Noctis, who is accompanied by his arguably more likable entourage. At least that’s what we first thought. As it turns out, the other three characters will be playable after all… as DLC.

As recently revealed on the official website, Square Enix will be releasing six themed DLC packs; three of which will focus on the other party members. Gladiolus, Ignis, and Prompto will each get their own “episode” that will allow the player to take control of them and most likely gain further insight into their characters. No specifics were revealed, though.

The other three DLC packs will include a “Booster Pack” that will “help you get powerful weapons…”, a “Holiday Pack” that “includes a splendid item pack to make your game more gorgeous” and an “Expansion Pack” that makes it possible to enjoy a completely new way to play…”

Final Fantasy XV will launch worldwide on September 30th for the PS4 and Xbox One. A Season Pass has already been confirmed for the game but its pricing is currently unknown.
