Today Square Enix announced that the first DLC package of Final Fantasy XV will be released on December 22nd for PS4 and Xbox One.
There will actually be two separate DLC: The Final Fantasy XV Holiday Pack (Free Version) will be released for free for everyone who purchased the game, while the Final Fanyasy XV Holiday Pack+ will be reserved to those who purchased the Season Pass.
The Holiday Pack+ Will include useful accessories that boost things like item drop rate or lower stamina consumption, on top of a ticket to a carnival to be held in-game in January, and more. It won’t be sold separately, so if you want it, you need the Season Pass.
The free Holiday Pack includes some accessories as well, and a carnival ticket of its own, that apparently is the same as the one included in the Holiday Pack+ (which, I assume, means that those who have the Season Pass will get two tickets).
A game update coming at the same time includes the new game plus feature, that let you use a save game after clearing the game to restart from the beginning of the story “with all previous gameplay data intact” and a feature that lets you add playful frames to pictures shared on social networks.
Below you can find the full list of items included in each package.
- Ring of Resistance

The carnival tickets will give you access to the Moogle Chocobo carnival, which will be held for a limited time in game in January. You can see an image in the gallery below.
The gallery also shows the frames that will be available for the photo frame feature, and the two costumes included in the DLC packages.
