Fans will soon be able to uncover the untold story surrounding Ignis’ battle against Leviathan during the events of the main game. Today’s newly released trailer, titled “Episode Ignis,” teases some of the challenges he faces and the battles he endures while protecting the crown prince, Noctis.

An original episode told from the perspective of Ignis. With Altissia in ruins after the Trial of Leviathan, Ignis faces the Niflheim Empire to protect Noctis at all costs. Joining him along the way is Ravus, high commander of the Niflheim Empire, who is determined to rescue his sister Lunafreya. Featuring fast-paced battles and multiple endings, it is finally time to learn about the untold events that transpired during one of the most dramatic moments in Final Fantasy XV.
