The video shows us the DLC’s first look, and the way it will be played, too. Next, there is a revelation battle between Ignis and Noctis:
The DLC (Episode Ignis) can be beaten in only one hour and a half until two hours. Since the DLC has multiple endings, the total amount of the time that will be spent is around three hours (if you play and experience the ending branches). However, this Episode has a little of cutscene and story like Episode Prompto. Moreover, Yasunori Mitsuda will compose the character’s track for Ignis and Ravus.

Other than those info, the director of the game Hajime Tabata receives awards (User’s Choice Award and a Platinum Award). Below is his comment during receiving the awards:
With the Platinum Prize and before the User’s Choice Award, we have received two wonderful awards. It’s a great honor. I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to all the users of Final Fantasy XV, all of you involved with PlayStation and everyone in the industry. Final Fantasy XV has three aspects: one is Final Fantasy XV the cutting-edge role-playing game. Then the user content of FFXV. Lastly, Final Fantasy XV as a continued service.
Final Fantasy XV has reached the one-year mark yesterday, and even today many users are still enjoying and playing the game. There are times when people criticize FFXV, so I don’t say that it will receive a 100% mark, but I think we were able to create a wonderful title.
However, times are changing and evolving. So together with our beloved PlayStation, I hope we can pursue a future game.
Such awards, aren’t they? Well, the game is all over the places and everywhere, so it is only natural to get the awards and enjoyed by people too.
