Note : You have a choice of two difficulty levels whenever you start a New Game: Normal or Easy. As mentioned, Easy will reduce the challenge of combat and also provides help when in a pinch. You can adjust the difficulty later on while playing.


An older man is breathing heavily, revealed to be Noctis, in a dark room that appears to be very hot. As the camera pans around, you see some of your companions, as well as a large, imposing figure sitting on a throne, surrounded by fire. Run forward and as you get close, a large burst of fire springs forth, knocking you to the ground. One of your friends, Prompto, helps you to your feet, and another, Ignis, calls out to join him in cover. Slowly limp over and the game will take over, so enjoy the following cutscenes.

After a years-long cold war between the Kingdom of Lucis and the empire of Niflheim over the world's last crystal, an armistice is finally agreed upon. As part of the peace treaty, the heir to the Lucian throne Noctis Lucis Caelum is to marry Lady Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, an oracle from the imperial province of Tenebrae. After Noctis sets out to meet his betrothed, the treaty collapses. Merely a ruse to bring down the magical barrier protecting Lucis, Niflheim invades and takes the kingdom and the crystal for itself. With the treaty in tatters and his father and betrothed believed dead, Noctis must rely on his own tenacity and the support of his band of loyal followers to get him through what is to come.
