I found this from Resetera, I'm not a member there I just sometimes browse it as a guest, from a post from Terranort. Apparently, it has bosses for Episode: Ardyn on it.:


Another thing about this, Terranort said these are music tracks associated with this for Episode: Ardyn, and apparently, they sound 'techno'.
Sounds like Ifrit may actually be a summon in Ardyn's DLC (why else revisit this concept and have music for him otherwise?) Hopefully, it if unlockable, it can be unlocked in base as well, as many other concepts from the DLC have made it into base.

Which concepts do you refer to?

Which concepts do you refer to?
Probably weapons, costumes, playable characters, the increased presence of the Kingsglaive, photo and Chocochick collection quests, controllable boats, vehicle mini-games, even a brand new summon... There were a lot of things that were made for DLC and festivals that made their way into the game proper.

I'm surprised no assets for an Odin summon were found. He's mentioned in the game files, I wonder if they ever intended on adding him down the line like they have with Garuda? The team obviously planned more updates to reintegrate cut content, we've seen that with the Death Gaze surfacing in the Comrades update.

Do you expect to be added Odin summon in March update?

Yeah, I read it, but it's still interesting that there may be placeholders for Episode: Ardyn's music. But then again, it's hard to tell.
Well, I think it's mainly interesting that one person posted about it.

I know the reddit bunch told the guy they were placeholders but probably not real music for episode Ardyn before he posted the topic.

The files were left out in the open in the pc update, and Sylva's been on the money a lot. I think it's interesting Sylva didn't bite for posting the music files, so idk. Seems interesting, maybe weird since he's proven about knowing some stuff.

Maybe stuff is changing, or they're trying to throw people off?

Perhaps the company became aware of the data-mining, and decided to throw in some 'riddles' of sorts in the data to throw people off of what's future or cut content or not, but either way, it's unknown as of right now.

Who said anything about January 10th?
Stream summary from nov had a teaser listed for jan 10.

Also about the music, both the reddit mods and sylva said placeholder, the mods said it like the music isn't for ardyn but just the file names could be and that they had some random music to test for the feeling or something like that, IDK. Sylva said a few things, but he's not saying jack atm because he thinks something is getting changed, or probably has been changed and moved to the anime.

He did say before they cleaned things out that Ardyn's weapon isn't the scythe last time he looked and that people finding items with the ps4 save editor probably didn't notice it.

I wonder if Episode Ardyn will have anything new, maybe small remnants of the cancelled episodes, although I doubt any work was started on those, such a shame how the production was handled with this game.

Checking out some older concept art I found this and traslated it with google. Altissia definitely had an Exit route planned, probably the Train Station that was gonna connect Accordo with Niflheim

The city has a multi-story structure, there are also waterways above the buildings
The entrance to the city wants to emphasize the water with a high view.

Does anyone have the dialogue that was cut out during development which takes place while Noctis was in the crystal in Chapter 13?

N : Noct
B : Bahamut
B: The King’s Light is yet faint.
B: When it shines the equal of the Stone, I, Bahamut, shall pledge my blade unto him.
B: Enter now into Reflection.
B: Gather unto the ring the Light that will purge the scourge of the stars.
B: When the time is come, the Usurper shall know defeat at the hands of kings true.
B: The Chosen shall embody the Stone, the mortal will...returned to naught.
N: Returned to naught? I just...fade away?

N: (My life for the power to save the world...)
N: I'll do it.
N: I'm not ready.

N: Wait, no! Lemme outta here!
B: The Light waxes full, O King.
B: Go forth to the throne and cast out the darkness, that the Stone's Light may reign.

My theory is that you saying "I'm not ready" was going to have Bahamut send you back to the "Forest of Memories" to look up memories of Luna, Regis and other things (presumably where the Luna cutscenes were before Tabata "didn't know what to do with them"), something that we saw in Platinum Demo. And this would also allow you to return to finish any past quests, but they decided to give you Umbra instead as they didn't include the Forest of Memories. The "special events" said to occur here may have been where they plotted to have any dream-related stuff, such as maybe Platinum Demo, Terra Wars and Moogle Chocobo Carnival.

The Platinum Demo is the world of his dreams, featuring a forest; it's likely this same forest area was the "Forest of Memories" that morphed into the "Astral Memory" Umbra lets you use.

theres cut dialogue with Noctis inside the crystal, asking himself what he would become, a king, god or normal person, with dream segments related to Luna which fueled his resolve.

that was on chapter 14 though, I strongly believe Ep Noctis would shed light on what happened inside.

The dream segments were all the Luna cutscenes; we were probably going to get an info dump in the Forest of Memories, seeing the memories of Regis and Luna as well as a memory hidden away in his mind; Regis cutscenes were most likely going to be insight into Kingsglaive or the events of EP: Ardyn, and Luna cutscenes were all of her scenes that were flashbacks in the game. Noctis was going to remember his time with Luna, his time with Regis which he does in the main game but they're brief flashes showing Ardyn's presence in their lives before he wakes up (presumably these three flashbacks were added because they couldn't add the Forest of Memories). The Forest of Memories, a place he accesses only in his dreams, seems to be the same forest from Platinum Demo wherein he discovered Carbuncle. Umbra having the Astral Memory, allowing Noctis to visit his memories seems like the compromise they made. Noct may have also seen the Dawn footage, as he was getting Regis and Luna's memories; he'd have seen how Niflheim treated her after they invaded, he'd have seen his father's reaction to him being chosen. With this new perspective, he wakes up determined and a changed man with a broader understanding of what he must do. The DLC itself seemed like it was simply going to explain the phantom wedding scene, as in death they are united, a place we were to explore with Luna in her DLC.
