If you’ve ever wanted to play as the sensitive, photo-loving Prompto in Final Fantasy XV, you’ll want to pick up the newly-released Final Fantasy XV: Episode Prompto downloadable content, which has just dropped on the PlayStation Store for North American players.

You’ll be able to take control of Prompto himself throughout the additional piece of story content and follow him all the way through a separate narrative centering solely around the golden boy. The new story focuses on his being stranded in an imperial base. Sounds pretty harrowing, that's for sure.

Just make sure you’re downloading the DLC that’s marked as the free option so you don’t accidentally spend the cash twice.
