The live stream will feature "Final Fantasy XV" director Hajime Tabata and marketing manager Akio Ofuji, as they discuss a variety of information on the "Final Fantasy XV" Universe, with a focus on the next DLC story, Episode Prompto, which will be release on June 27, Gematsu reported.

Square Enix previously streamed a the trailer for Episode Prompto as the players will explore the titular character's past and will feature gun-blazing action.

Prompto will not be the only "Final Fantasy XV" character featured in Episode Prompto as Aranea Highwind will be joining him in the fray. The trailer also featured a new character, who is connected to Prompto's past before the events of "Final Fantasy XV's" story.

Square Enix revealed a lot of new details for "Final Fantasy XV" during the E3 2017 event as they will also release a VR based storyline called "Monsters of the Deep." Players will join Noctis and his friends go fishing from different areas in the game.

This is no ordinary fishing game, as some of these catches have some seriously grizzly scales. Noctis will be able to catch some smaller fish, as well as humongous beasts, with the video teasing a writhing sea serpent and a giant leaping monster with a giant maw to match.

That same sea creature can also be seen leaping towards Noctis’ face too, which is set to give PSVR users a real jump scare if they are not expecting it in the "Final Fantasy XV" VR story.

The "Monsters in the Deep" DLC will also feature a scanner, but Square Enix did not mention any further details about it. However, gamers can expect the new VR DLC to launch on the PSVR on September.

Meanwhile, it seems that Square Enix will likely get a PC version of "Final Fantasy XV" next year with possible PC mods.

Tabata wanted a more "technically developed" version of "Final Fantasy XV, "something he estimated would take more than a year to do properly.

However, the idea of porting "Final Fantasy XV" to the PC is not just about improving its visuals and Square Enix is interested in seeing how the introduction of user-created content could benefit the game's experience.

Tabata explained that it will take one year for Square Enix to develop "Final Fantasy XV" on the PC platform and will likely launch sometime in 2018. PC users were adamant about having the game in the PC as they have created several petitions for it prior to its release in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

The game director would also like to tackle some features for "Final Fantasy XV" PC like creating unique quests and mod creations, PC Gamers reported.

"Final Fantasy XV" is currently available for the PS4 and Xbox One.
