    Once you've finished the main episode once, you'll unlock a new option on the menu allowing you to redo Chapter 3 but with the option to "play along" with Ardyn. Choose this option and you'll be able to fight Ardyn a second time, this time actually being able to defeat him.

    It's a slow but easy fight as Ardyn has a lot of health, but keep hitting away and you'll get there. When the ring runs low on power, you want to select the "risk your life" option on the first ask, then on the second choose to sacrifice your life. This will start a timer but should be plenty of time in which to finish off Ardyn.

    I am unsure if repeating the "fight back" option allows you to defeat Ardyn or if, like in the main episode, it ends the fight early before he has run out of health, but you'll want to pick the "play along" option to see the alternative storyline anyway.

    Reyas @qManballin Cheers for the addition support, One advice I can give (in case you didn't know) is that the more you keep choosing the "risk your life" option, the more time you have to bring down his health before the timed "sacrifice your life" option is forced upon you. I believe you can choose risk your life two times before losing the option and being forced to sacrifice? I personally still have 1 minute 20 left after using risk my life once.

    A method you can use once Ardyn starts blocking your fire attacks is switching weapon type, attacking mid air with the ice blades still damages him due to AOE whilst the lightning blades also allows for some quick attacks that he generally doesnt block, however I often missed with those so I'd advise to avoid the lightning blades.

    Pankerizate It doesn't actually matter if you sacrifice your soul, sense or do nothing.
    The achievement pops as long as you defeat Ardyn
