While the new Final Fantasy XV Gamescom 2015 trailer isn’t as epic as others may have been, the new ‘Dawn’ trailer shows off something in the game that has yet to be seen – Noctis and his bond with his father, King Regis.
The trailer also hearkens toward some of the struggles we’ll see in the game, such as Regis’ troubles with the neighboring country of Niflheim. Below, you can take a gander at the new story details that Square released alongside the trailer:
In a matter of days, the Kingdom of Lucis is to sign an armistice, ending a long and bitter conflict with Niflheim. Ahead of the ceremony, Prince Noctis, heir to the Lucian throne, sets forth from his homeland to formalize the union of states through his marriage to the Lady Lunafreya of the imperial province of Tenebrae. The offer of peace, however, is no more than a ruse to lower the Lucian shield, and the imperial army takes the crown city and its sacred crystal in one fell swoop. En route to his destination, Noctis is shocked to learn that he, his father the king, and his betrothed are believed dead. Overnight, the dream of peace has faded into a distant memory. His world crumbling around him, Noctis has naught but his resolve and his loyal companions to see him through the trials to come.
Final Fantasy XV is, of course, in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
