GameSpot reports that the game’s DLCs will include additional story content, which will probably be based around the three episode packs (Ignis, Gladio, and Prompto); however, this it is still unconfirmed as of now.

There were also reports indicating that the game might see a PC release in the future. According to SegmentNext, Square Enix took part in Siggraph 2016 last month, which was an annual event on computer graphics. During the demo, it was rumored that the Japanese video game company demonstrated visual effects, real-time technologies, and rendering techniques on a PC.

Of course, this is all speculation until the company confirms the news, but it does give PC gamers hope that they may get to play the game someday.

While waiting for the launch, fans should also check out the game’s companion film “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV.” The film is a must watch for gamers since it acts as a prequel to “Final Fantasy XV.” “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV” will receive a limited theatrical release in North America, beginning on Aug. 19, and it will also be available on streaming and download services on Aug. 30. Blu-ray and DVD versions will be available on Oct. 4.
