So Gladio just won't appear so I have to reset? Ohhhhh mannnnnn
You have to complete some missions before Gladio shows up. I’m not sure if you’re experiencing the glitch that I did. I’ll tell you about it so you can see if it sounds familiar.
Here’s what happened to me with the Prompto glitch: It was my first time facing off with him, but I didn’t want to beat him right away since I wanted to see what all he’d do. So I let him beat me. Meanwhile, my party was ready to start a mission, which meant I needed to hurry over to Monica so I could join them.
I tried to quit. Then the party menu popped up, like it does when you choose a quest and have to decide whether you want to play with real people or with AI. Which I knew was weird because??? It’s a single-player fight??? I don’t want to call in my friends to gang up on this sweet boy hahaha.
But I didn’t even have the option to leave the menu. I picked the AI option. The game froze for a while, and then dumped me back in Lestallum. The cutscene where Prompto enters Lestallum played again. So I ran over to see if he was still there… and he wasn’t.
And he never spawned again, and I did COUNTLESS missions afterwards. So yeah, he totally derailed the whole game! Hahahaha
