Episode Gladiolus DLC for FFXV is the first paid story DLC for the game. It focuses on the adventures of Gladiolus after the party’s defeat by the hands of Ravus. FFXV fans have been waiting for this DLC for a long time, but some have been having trouble getting the DLC. In this guide, we’ll show you how to access Final Fantasy XV Episode Gladiolus DLC.
How to download Episode Gladiolus DLC
To access Episode Gladiolus, you’ll have to download it from your respective store. If you have the season pass, you won’t have to pay anything extra. If not, then the DLC will cost you an additional $4.99. The file is about 2.8 GB, and you’ll find it in the downloadable content section of the game’s store page.
In case you can’t seem to access the content in your PlayStation or Xbox store, it might mean that it hasn’t yet unlocked in your region. This particularly goes for North America, who appear to be getting the DLC last. Be patient, and don’t forget to make sure to have enough free space for the DLC on your hard drive.
How to Play Episode Gladiolus FFXV DLC
Once you’ve completed the download, open the game and select the Downloadable Content option in the main menu. It will lead you into the next menu, and all you need to do know is select Episode Gladiolus. Presumably, this is where the future DLC episodes will appear once they come out.
One thing that some might find disappointing is that nothing carries over from the main game. No matter how far you’ve leveled Gladiolus up or how many outfits you have, it won’t count in the DLC. Instead, you’ll have to make do with a level 24 Gladiolus (the default level you start the DLC with), and your weapon will out of the gate will be the Claymore. Also, your outfit choices will be limited to the Crownsguard Fatigues, and you can only switch between the versions with and without the jacket.
While this might disappoint some players, it kinda does make sense to start off with a weaker Gladio, considering Episode Gladiolus happens earlier in the game. Either way, I’m sure all will enjoy the extra DLC content, following Gladio on his journey to become more powerful.
