So Square Enix revealed new information regarding the Final Fantasy XV Episode Gladiolus DLC that is coming on March 28th.
So far it seems like we will be playing as Gladiolus. The story will take place during the period of time when Gladio left the rest of the FFXV group and went away for a while. Cor will be a companion and together they will be off to face off against the Blademaster known as Gilgamesh.
Cor is the only person to have previously completed this trial in the ancient ruins of Lucis. Cor will journey with Gladio to the Shield of the Founder King fight which serves as a test to prove if Gladiolus is fit to be the King’s Shield.
During this DLC episode, Gladiolus will take advantage of a Valor blocking and Rage counterattacking system. After the DLC episode is beaten it unlocks a Final Trials and Score Attack mode as well as the ability to transfer a few select items received in the DLC story to be brought over to the main game’s save file.
