Today the North American PlayStation Store unveiled the Season Pass for Final Fantasy XV, without providing further information. Luckily, the Japanese store went up with its own listing which provides more details.
Here’s a list of the DLC packages included in the season pass:
- “FFXV Booster Pack” (DLC1) (provisional)
- “FFXV Episode Gladiolus” (DLC2) (provisional)
- “FFXV Holiday Pack” (DLC3) (provisional)
- “FFXV Episode Ignis” (DLC4) (provisional)
- “FFXV Episode Prompto” (DLC5) (provisional)
- “FFXV Expansion Pack” (DLC6) (provisional)
At the moment not many details have been provided, but at least the three packs related to Gladio, Ignis and Prompto appear to include story content. The description of the Season Pass mentions “wholly new and original episodes” and “a new mode.”
The listing doesn’t give specific information on the launch dates for each package, but the name of the “Holiday Pack” might be an indication, alongside the fact that it’s the third DLC. Assuming that it could be released in December to match the Holiday season, we might get monthly DLC releases, even if this is just my personal speculation for the moment.
There also is another interesting detail: the description of the Season pass includes a warning mentioning that you need PlayStation Plus in order to access online multiplayer features. At the moment it’s unknown whether this is a mistake (it wouldn’t be the first time), or the DLC packages include some kind of online multiplayer feature, which could be the “new mode” mentioned above.
Final Fantasy XV will release on September 30th worldwide, and the price of the Season pass in North America is $24.99. It costs 2,700 yen on the Japanese store, translating to $26.66.
