The First 15 Minutes of Final Fantasy XV: Episode Gladiolus

Check Out The First 15 of Final Fantasy XV: Episode Gladiolus

At a recent Square Enix event held downtown Vancouver BC, the COGconnected crew had a chance to play around 30 minutes of the upcoming Final Fantasy XV: Episode Gladiolus (the full DLC should take around 2-3 hours to complete). In this video, we show you the first 15-minutes of the DLC and careful, there are some story spoilers.

In our hands-on preview which will be released shortly, Paul says: “Final Fantasy XV was a really confusing experience for me. One second I’d be loving the bromance and be almost overwhelmed with joy at how incredible things were, and the next I’d beso beyond disappointed… Sigh. Anyway, the DLC for the game is supposed to fix that sadness, filling in the gaps in the main game and expanding on the positives as well. We played about half an hour of episode Gladiolus, and to be honest I was a bit underwhelmed. You play as Gladio, obviously, but the section we looked at was super linear, and didn’t do much to differentiate Gladio from playing as Noctis besides having fewer battle options. Maybe that gets better, but no word on that for now. The demo looked gorgeous, but was running pretty rough – poor framerate and laden with glitch weirdness. Still, there’s always potential and I’m hopeful the end product is strong.”

Not exactly encouraging words but if you have the season pass you’ll want to at least try it out. Keep in mind we only played 30-minutes so it could improve as you proceed along.
