Yesterday, the PlayStation Store added a brand new preorder package for Square Enix’s upcoming installment in the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy XV, and in doing so they revealed that the game will be receiving a Season Pass for all its DLC content. While the American storefront only gave away the existence of the Pass, the Japanese version of the listing provided the names of each of the six packs that the Pass covers.

As translated by
Gematsu, the six packs are named as follows:

  • “Booster Pack” (DLC #1)
  • “Episode Gladiolus” (DLC #2)
  • “Holiday Pack” (DLC #3)
  • “Episode Ignis” (DLC #4)
  • “Episode Prompto” (DLC #5)
  • “Expansion Pack” (DLC #6)

While we don’t know for certain what each of them will contain, DLC packs 2, 4, and 5 are all named after Noctis’s companions in the game; calling these “Episodes” suggests that each pack may contain new story content focused around a particular companion. This would line up with statements made by Director Hajime Tabata back at E3, where he said that the game’s DLC would include “additional story content, costumes, as well as things that don’t fall into those categories that fans will be excited to see.”

As for the other packs, they likely focus more on those other two items in Tabata’s comment: the “costumes” and “other things” categories. We’ll just have to wait for Square Enix to offer more details about them in the coming days. In the meantime, if you’d like to get the Season Pass for yourself via preorder, you can grab it via the newly-revealed “Digital Premium Edition” for $84.99; if you’ve already preordered the game digitally, the PlayStation Store is also offering a “Season Pass Upgrade” that you can look into.

Will you be picking up the Season Pass for
Final Fantasy XV? Do these DLC packs sound worth grabbing? Or are you annoyed to see that story content might potentially be locked behind a DLC paywall? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Our Verdict

Tyler Meehan
Tyler is verbose. He apologizes for that. Tyler "Alpha" Meehan's first experiences with gaming came from his cousins' NES and the Mario games that went with it. They were fun, but merely brief distractions while on the road (yes, they had an NES in their car. It was awesome, and he was jealous). Still, nothing compared to his Star Wars books. OR SO HE THOUGHT. His love of gaming truly began when he and a friend came together to beat the Nintendo 64's Mission: Impossible, a challenge so intense that Tyler bought his own console to facilitate its defeat. Upon being introduced to Ocarina of Time (an introduction that included, among other spoilers, the freakin' final boss fight. GEEZ, PHILIP), his lot in life as a Nintendo fanboy was sealed in stone. His ability to recall absolutely useless video game information served him well during the Pokémon craze, and helped him aid numerous friends in their own endeavors to defeat games like Majora's Mask and Kingdom Hearts. Those were good days. Good days... The Zelda series soon became his primary obsession fascination, but additionally he was soon introduced to text-based RPGs by one of his schoolmates. Discovering that he had a knack for the English language and a strong love of telling stories, he started putting effort into writing his own storylines. That all got put onto the backburner, though, when he discovered the Zelda online community, particularly The Desert Colossus's Hyrule Adventures 2, an online text RPG based in the Zelda world. He joined under the pseudonym of "Alpha" and soon became one of their lead writers, going so far as to join the moderator staff and, in a year's time, become the head administrator of the RPG. During this time, Twilight Princess was released, and he joined several other TDCers in posting their thoughts on the game - his "Twilight Impression Posts" lasted for several months and were well received by the community. Staying on even after the webmaster was forced to retire, he continued to provide occasional news posts and articles for the site, until it became clear that the site was dying. He turned his focus back to Hyrule Adventures 2 and his college studies, until the latter forced him to stop work on the former. Tyler graduated a few years ago from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelors in Computer Science, and now serves as a software engineer for a rather large company that he doesn't feel like telling you all about (he's a jerk like that sometimes). His love of gaming and writing still strong, he joined the Zelda Informer staff in early 2013 to write a walkthrough for The Wind Waker, but later began using his English skills to become ZI and Gamnesia's first dedicated Copy Editor. When not trying to get Brian to shut up in Gamnesia's group chat, he spends his time writing Zelda fanfiction, planning some original fantasy stories that he may or may not try to publish some day, and playing games on his Wii, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo 3DS. He intends to get a WiiU sooner or later, probably around when Pikmin 3 comes out, but has little interest in the other consoles currently. Also, he can't stand writing bios in first-person. Talking about yourself like that is just...weird.
