This long-awaited third instalment of season pass content sees Jack and his allies’ adventures through time and space draw to a close. 

Guided by an enigmatic moogle spirit, Jack and his allies travel to a city in another dimension. Lufenians call this place Central. From here they observed a myriad of worlds and dimensions. Yet it took only the mad delusions of one Lufenian to bring it all to ruin. Driven by a desire to restore the world to its former order and beauty, she summons otherworldly weapons from dimensional distortions with the aim of eradicating not just Jack, but the world itself. Jack strides deep into the heart of this ghostly city to break the fetters of this karmic juggernaut once and for all.

The Emperor appears before Jack and his allies, and he is hot on the trail of the moogle. His motives for coming to this dimension are different from the Lufenian, and he seems to have no intention of teaming up.

  • Thirst for Chaos: An arcane circle appears in the player’s wake, from which a number of magical orbs arise and explode.
  • Demon’s Hymn: The Emperor Summons a spectre who attacks you on his behalf. With this attack, he can summon gigas, coeurls and other monsters.
