The new DLC expansion will mark the first time players will be able to make their own avatar and call on up to three other friends to join them on epic quests and battles. As a survivor from the Kingsglaive, players will be on a mission to find out more about the strange disappearance of Noctis after what happened in Chapter 13 from the main game.
Being a member of the Kingsglaive does come with some perks, as you'd expect. Players will be equipped with royal sigils that grant special powers straight from the Lucian bloodline.
