New Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis footage shows off a scuffle with Noctis


Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis is the next expansion to come to the sprawling role-playing game, and it’s out in just a few weeks. Square Enix has released a couple of new clips in anticipation of its launch. 

One clip showcases the entire first three minutes of the expansion’s opening, including a touching moment between Ignis and Noctis as the King introduces the two and urges Ignis to “please protect” his son. 

The other clip gives us a look at a pivotal battle between both Iggy and Noctis as they square off after the end of the first episode. There’s a lot of content squeezed into both videos if you’re an eagle-eyed fan. 

Episode Ignis will take about two hours to complete, which may seem like a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of Final Fantasy XV, but it’s hardly the last bit of content planned for the game. First of all, it will unlock several different endings based on the choices you make as Ignis. Second of all, Episode Ardyn is still scheduled for release in 2018. 

There’s also the upcoming Comrades multiplayer expansion, which will release on Dec. 12. If you needed a reason to jump back into Final Fantasy XV, this should be the perfect excuse, especially with more to learn about Ignis on the line. You know he’s always got new recipes brewing for you if you hang out with him enough.
