When "Final Fantasy 15" was released in November 2016, many gamers praised its stunning visuals and interesting gameplay elements. Recently, details about the game's timeline sparked speculations that the future DLCs might introduce new endings or alternate realities for the beloved characters.

"Final Fantasy 15" director Hajime Tabata gave an interesting presentation during the 2017 Game Developers Conference (GDC). During the event, he talked about the various elements needed to create the game. One of the information he shared tackled the game's timeline that consisted of three narrative aspects namely the main Storyline, Flashback scenes and an Alternate Reality, iDigital Times reported.

All of the "Final Fantasy 15" demos, preview clips and spin-off titles were identified during Tabata's presentation including its place in the timeline. A screenshot of the said presentation captured by several audience members and shared on social media showed the "Kingsglaive" demo, as well as the "Omen Trailer," as part of the Flashback and Alternate Reality narrative. Moreover, an entry titled "DLC Episodes" was highlighted under the Alternate Reality timeline.

Given the said presentation, many gamers speculated that the future DLCs might introduce a different or alternate ending to Noctis' story in "Final Fantasy 15." Game developers might even deploy a pack that will allow players to change some of the game's story elements or introduce a happier ending that could include Noctis and Luna's actual wedding.

At this time, it is still unclear if "Final Fantasy 15" game developers will deploy DLCs that could alter the story of beloved characters. Neither Tetsuya Nomura's team nor Square Enix has commented on the said news.

Meanwhile, players can look forward to an upcoming "Final Fantasy 15" DLC that will add a snippet of Gladiolus' story to the game. Titled "Episode Gladiolus," gamers will have the chance to play the said character and learn more about his powerful moves. The game's producer Haruyoshi Sawatari told Game Informer that the DLC will take around one to two hours to complete, depending on the gamer's expertise.

"Final Fantasy 15: Episode Gladiolus" DLC will be released on March 28 for PS4 and Xbox One.
