The final piece of Final Fantasy XV DLC, Episode Ardyn, is now available for $9.99.

When the release date was announced, I speculated that Episode Ardyn would be longer than the previous DLC episodes.

This made sense for two reasons. First, they had originally said they might make an entire game based around Ardyn, which suggested they had a lot of material. Second, it costs twice as much as the previous DLC episodes, which are $4.99 each.

However, players have reported that Episode Ardyn is about 2-3 hours long, just like the others.

So I’m not sure why it costs $9.99 when it’s the same length as the previous DLC episodes. I haven’t actually bought it yet, because I lost some of my enthusiasm. The anime prologue wasn’t as interesting as I hoped, either, partly because it’s so short. It added a few more details to the story we already knew, but it was nothing like the look at Ardyn’s past I’d hoped for.

I’ll probably still get Episode Ardyn eventually (and maybe Episode Ignis too), but right now I have other games I’d rather play instead.

Are you getting Episode Ardyn?
