I wonder if we'll get an Episode Ardyn or Episode Luna teaser on March 6...?

Usually, BD2 has always released teasers whenever knew DLC came.

When Episode Gladio came out, Square released a Prompto teaser, Episode Prompto had a Ignis teaser, and Comrades has a full on Episode Ignis Trailer.

Gonna go on my gut feeling that we really aren't going to get a fully playable WoR at least with this update, i can certainly see it being possible later on, but not for the RE content specifically.

Oh yeah totally, that's what I meant haha. I think WoR is going to be it's own thing down the road, it's another highly requested part people want.

I guess I'm asking, if you get the car in Insomnia later, what would you use to go to the WoR before that (considering Insmnia is technically the point of no return so I can't see them just deciding to leave the city).

Edit:

I definitely think so too. Something Ardyn related has to be happening soon.

dunno, but since comrades kinda covers that, i think they won't? even if you pick the car at hammerhead...

possible, i would say the lore they'll include with the update is a set-up, Tabata did say he wanted to deal with some lore information before doing EP Ardyn.

I'd actually be totally okay with Comrades taking care of it, but only if the game actually progresses to true WoR by the end of their updates (if the story in it is theoretically still continuing with 1.2 and so on). I just wanna see some cool timeskip designs and some decent story wrapups for Cindy, Aranea and Iris if they stay in Lestallum while Noct and rest do their thing in Insomnia

Edit: ok I have just read it the latest posts, its looks like we will have a big insomnia and even driving around the city. What a time to be alive...
Just reserve judgment and excitement until it releases. While a lot of this is likely true and set in stone, you can never be too sure what doesn't make the cut.

It probably is possible since there are several things pointing to it, but remember that some of it is just me assuming how it works, whether or not if it's right.

Just don't wanna cause a shitstorm if something is not in. I like speculating, especially with as much proof as I can find, so I try not to be too fluffy about it.

Anyway, I agree with your feeling. Just be sane about it until we know for sure.

I don't think episode Luna will be a thing. They will fill her character in other ways, like new cutscenes, and being playable\party member in Royal edition.
Honestly, this is the route I think they are going as well. Tabata technically hasn't mentioned actually giving her an episode, but has mentioned wanting to do more with her. However, I can them actually adding new playable sections at various parts in the story.

Kinda like how Gladio got a verse 2 in Chapter 13, I can see them doing a Verse 2 with Luna in any of the chapters from 1-7.

If the leak is holds, then we are gonna get our first decent update to fixing Luna's part in the game

Regarding that Glaive out of time quest I originally thought they were gonna attempt to tie Nyx himself into the game (since his death was essentially him running out of time while fighting Glauca and that fits with the title) which is silly but a man can dream to have stronger connections between KG and XV, right? Anyways I'm almost certain now after having read those mission objectives that we're getting Libertus and Bros dialogue regarding the movie events and Nyx so his body in the throne room makes more sense otherwise they wouldn't tease said Glaive as a familiar face (seriously gonna be salty if it's a random side character with little importance aka another Jared type deal lol). Maybe even some dialogue to confirm that Noctis knew Nyx to some degree or knew of him. As it stands Nyx while awesome made the least bit of sense to have in the throne room in that scene seeing as even Ignis only knows him as a random Glaive and can't see to confirm who it is anyway. So I'm hopeful that this quest in particular serves to further strengthen the movie and game connection. Other than that if I'm being honest I never expected Episode Luna but with that being said her potentially being a party member is a pretty good thing in its place. Like I said a few pages back I'm fully expecting her story and added moments to be dispersed throughout the game as enhancements rather than a fully compiled Episode.

Just to further support this claim, Libertus is already a playable AI in Comrades, so it'd be easy to port over most likely

I don't see how it could be anyone else for that side-quest (your Glaive would be cool but I feel like that would be too complicated to implement (especially if you don't have Comrades but get this DLC)

OG says there's conversation lines that do reflect Noctis recognizing the Glaives.

However, with other things there was something regarding a Fallen Kingsglaive and/or a Kingsglaive's Cadaver of sorts. As he's repeatedly stressed to me at the least, there is actually some gaps in the data, and he's actually having a look through a few particular things for me currently to see if that and the Glauca stuff in another section of the data has any relevance that can actually be expanded on properly, and has multiple other references in other parts of the data to make it less inclined to be a potential error, or a fluke.

Just a large point as a general reminder: whatever data is found is clearly unlikely to be complete, and has all potential to be subject to change, or may even be from earlier/scrapped content given OG has found alternative lines for things too.

Just a thought but honestly a great way to improve the first half and give more characterization to Niflheim is to make the other 3 unavailabe Niflheim bases optional bases to take over during the first half. It's like you liberate 2 in the game and then a 3rd in post game but you never touch the other 3. They are still untouched to this day.

Unless, they are *gasp*, planning to actually improve the first half altogether:D

A fight with Nyx wouldn't really serve any purpose and it would make me feel bad for him tbh, but I did hope that it was a fight with a revived General Glauca. Finally, we would be able to take vengeance on the man who betrayed and murdered Noct's father, the man who was responsible for taking Luna from him aka the second biggest antagonist in the entirety of XV's universe.

Shame that that doesn't seem to be the case... but I wonder what's up with Ulric's Kukris. They're spawning in, in a different way than they did before. Maybe it's just a glitch but it was leading ppl to believe that there would be a different way to get them going forward, and a fight with Glauca would've been the perfect way too get them IMO. Mind you, I wouldn't lock that behind the Royal Edition DLC that's something I'd patch in for everyone to enjoy. Speaking of potential boss fights, I really, really want to see the Diamond Weapon one of these days, ideally in Insomnia. That thing looked so terrifying and powerful, I can't help but too want to take it down :D.
