Square Enix today released Final Fantasy XV’s first story DLC “Episode Gladiolus” for Xbox One and PS4 users. The episode lets you control Gladiolus as the main playable character, implementing new mechanics and bringing forth a duel against Gilgamesh.
After losing to the enemy high commander Ravus, Gladiolus is forced to swallow a bitter pill and face the limitations of his own strength. In order to travel with the Chosen King, he realizes he must also possess a comparable level of power in order to protect him. In the ancient ruins that were found in the Kingdom of Lucis around thirty years ago, the spirits of heroes that once served the king await the next generation of warriors. Gladiolus parts ways with his entourage and meets up with Cor, the sole survivor of the trials. Now, with his mentor at his side, Gladiolus sets out to challenge the Shield of the Founder King known as the ferocious Gilgamesh.
The DLC also comes with a teaser for the next DLC Episode Prompto at the end. You can find the DLC update here for $4.99.
