‘Final Fantasy XV’ “Dawn” Trailer

Square Enix has given fans yet another glimpse of the latest Final Fantasy installment by way of a brand new trailer at this year’s Gamescom. Entitled “Dawn” and set 15 years before the events of Final Fantasy XV, the three-minute trailer provides perhaps the best look at the game’s unique setting and focuses on the relationship between a father and son. Says the developer:

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.

Though an official release date has yet to be announced, Final Fantasy XV is supposedly due out for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One before the end of the year and can be pre-ordered now via Amazon.
