Final Fantasy XV Episode Ignis DLC Gets a Gameplay Trailer

The DLC will have guest music composed by Chrono Trigger's Yasunori Mitsuda

The last story DLC related to Noctis' entourage, Episode Ignis, got a new trailer today in the lead-up to the main Paris Games Week PlayStation stream.

Square-Enix previously released a brief teaser for Episode Ignis, but this is the first time we get to see gameplay from the upcoming DLC. You can check out Ignis' surprisingly dark backstory in the trailer below.

Episode Ignis is a decidedly moody bit of story DLC, much like Episode Gladiolus and Episode Prompto before it. Ignis' story looks a little more epic than the previous story DLCs, with the appearance of some showy villains, a backstory that involves Noctis in some way, and still no cooking minigame.

In a bit of a surprise, Chrono Trigger composer Yasunori Mitsuda will be doing guest music for the DLC.

Episode Ignis is coming out on December 13 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PSVR
