Where to Download Episode Ignis DLC?

You’ll be able to download the FFXV Episode Ignis DLC in your respective game store. Of course, you’ll have to make sure that the store has been updated with the new content. If the Episode Ignis DLC hasn’t appeared yet, close it and try again later. Of course, don’t forget to search the store for the content. Once you find Episode Ignis, hit Download, and just wait it out. Make sure to have enough room on your hard drive. The DLC isn’t that big. On the PlayStation 4, it takes up 4.6 GB.

How to Begin Episode Ignis DLC?

Once you’re done installing the FFXV Episode Ignis DLC, fire the game up. If everything went well, the game will let you know that bonus content has been unlocked. From the main menu, select the Downloadable Content option. The next menu will take you to the selection screen of all the Final Fantasy XV DLC you already own. Simply select Episode Ignis, and you’ll be good to go.

As with Episode Gladiolus and Episode Prompto, the Ignis you’ll be playing as isn’t the same Ignis from the ending of the base Final Fantasy XV. As a result, your stats will be adjusted appropriately. The DLC will explore the story of the loyal butler in greater detail, expanding the story further. In other news, the new FFXV update introduced the option to switch between characters in combat.

      I figured it out.

      I had bought the collector’s pack on PSN to replace the hard copy I had lost in the flood this year. Apparently I had to download each individual item as it came along in the “bundle”…..threw me for a loop. Check and see if that might be the same for you.

      In any case, good luck.

        I have that problem too, but I can’t manage to play the DLC. I’ve downloaded it, but it doesn’t appear anywhere, could somebody specify how to solve this problem?

    I have the season pass for final fantasy 15 I just downloaded episode Ignis and it’s not in the menu to select the game anybody with this problem

    Ok I solved it! I had the same problem, it wasn’t recognizing any DLC after I bought the season pass, what you have to do is find each individual episode and download it on the psn store, it should show that it is free to download after buying the season pass.
    After finished downloading the epis odes I went back to the game and it showed that there was new content. Hope that helps someone 🙂
