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!
