    Read some information on the DLC below:

    ■ Story

    35 years before the events of Final Fantasy XV. Verstael Besithia, a researcher belonging to the Empire of Niflheim, releases Ardyn Lucis Caelum from 2,000 years of imprisonment. Led to the Imperial research facility, Ardyn discovers a certain truth and decides to take revenge upon the Kingdom of Lucis.

    ■ Infiltrate the Crown City Insomnia

    Ardyn infiltrates Insomnia to destroy the peaceful Crown City, which is surrounded by a magic barrier. And what does Ardyn see beyond his revenge…?

    ■ Characters

    Characters from main story of Final Fantasy XV will appear in “Episode Ardyn” several decades younger. New characters such as Ardyn’s beloved Aera Mils Fleuret and his younger brother Somnus Lucis Caelum will also appear.

    Verstael Besithia

    A scientist belonging to the Niflheim Imperial Army, and the leading magitek researcher. He took notice of the Lucis outlaw dubbed “Adagium” and released Ardyn from his imprisonment on Angelgard.

    Aera Mils Fleuret

    The first Oracle, chosen as the bridge between humankind and the divine. She and Ardyn were deeply in love with each other.

    Regis Lucis Caelum

    Noctis Lucis Caelum’s father and the 113th King of Lucis. He puts his heart and soul into protecting the Kingdom of Lucis from the Niflheim Empire’s frequent invasions.

    Somnus Lucis Caelum

    Ardyn’s younger brother and the Founder King of Lucis. Dubbed the “Mystic” based on his feats in battle. He imprisoned his older brother Ardyn, who had become a daemon, and ascended to the throne.

    ■ Various New Systems

    New systems have been implemented that are unique to Ardyn, who possesses the power of daemons.

    Shadow Move to Points on the Map

    By using the power of daemons, Ardyn can freely move about at high speeds to points on the map with the “Shadow Move” ability.

    Daemonification

    Ardyn has the special power to transform enemies into daemons and render them powerless. By successfully landing a finishing attack (landing five consecutive hits), you will then be able to use the one-hit kill special attack “Daemonification” (official English name pending).

    You can also activate Daemonification by successfully landing a sequence of attacks following a back-attack. Utilize Ardyn’s Shadow Move to attack the enemy from behind.

    Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer SIE Bend Studio have released the story trailer for Days Gone.

    View it below:

    Here is an overview of the game:

    At its core, Days Gone is about survivors and what makes them human: desperation, loss, madness, betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, regret, love—and hope. It’s about how, even when confronted with such enormous tragedy, hope never dies.

    Hero: Deacon St. John:

    Play as Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter facing a brutal struggle for survival while searching for a reason to live.

    Threats:

    • Unique Enemies – In addition to hostile drifters, marauders, and militia, Deacon must face a wilderness overrun by dangerous and evolving Freakers. As with any living creature, Freakers eat, drink, hibernate and build nests, behaviors that Deacon must learn and adapt to.
    • Freaker Threats – Freakers are humans infected with the virus that destroyed the world. With a variety of types, from Screamers to Swarmers to massive Hordes, Freakers are constantly on the hunt for their next meal— you.
    • Human Threats – Most survivors fled to the wilderness in search of safety. Some formed groups that roam the broken road looking to murder the helpless. Others lost their minds. In the open world, trust no one and keep your survivor skills sharp.
    • Animal Threats – From dangerous predators like the mountain lion to infected creatures like Ragers and Runners, your chances of survival in the wilderness are only as good as your bike. Always be prepared to fight to survive.

    World: Unique Setting:

    Adapt to quick environmental changes inspired by the harsh high-desert of the Pacific Northwest. One minute, Deacon is riding through a dense alpine forest—or snow field or lush meadow—and the next, he’s fighting his way through harsh desert lava fields and caves.

    Ancient lava flows scar and define the hazardous environments, delivering a breathtaking and diverse backdrop of regions to explore. From small towns and mountains to cliffs and river basins, explore the beautiful but threatening world, left in the wake of humanity’s destruction.

    Days Gone will launch exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on April 26.

We can’t wait to see fans go head-to-head as they test their Crash kart racing mettle in online multiplayer.”
