Duscae is a region in Final Fantasy XV. It is one of the early areas of the game, and is featured in the Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae demo. The town of Lestallum is located near it. The region includes vast grassy plains where colossal monsters roam, lakes, forests, and mountainous areas. Large stone arcs seem native to the area and in trailers the party has been seen using their car to cross them. The area also has large urban areas and towns, as well as old ruins.
Prince Noctis Lucis Caelum and his friends Ignis Scientia, Prompto Argentum, and Gladiolus Amicitia cross the Duscae region on Noctis's car on a road trip to meet with a woman named Luna. Their car breaks down and they hire Cindy, a local mechanic, to fix it. Afterward they pass by a giant Adamantoise, and an astral shard, and become apprehended by enemy soldiers.
There is a service station in Duscae where the mechanic Cindy will repair the party's car after it breaks down. The service station has a shop and a caravan for the party to rest at.
Wiz Chocobo PostEdit
At the chocobo post the party can rest, and in the full game rent chocobos. There is a caravan on the grounds, and the party can buy items from Wiz.
Hunt for DeadeyeEdit
After doing the Astronomy Tour with Ignis the player can take the whole party to the same spot to trigger a scene with the four watching the stars. Prompto wants to take a picture but the camera topples over.

Creation and developmentEdit
The overall impression for Duscae started as a desolate wasteland, but environmental concept called for coexisting ecosystems, and thus Duscae features wetlands and vegetation.
Duscae region became larger than the developers anticipated. In the original estimates the size of the entire Final Fantasy XV world was potentially even 20 times that of the Duscae region, but when playing through the ever-growing Duscae region, director Hajime Tabata pondered that if the entire world is 20 times the size of that it would take forever to play the game.
