Final Fantasy XV DLCs Detailed: Playable Gladio, Ignis and Prompto and “Completely New” Expansion

on August 12, 2016 2:51 AM

Last week, Square Enix announced the names of the DLC packages that will be included in the expansion pack for Final Fantasy XV (and that will presumably be available separately at some point). Yet, at that time, the actual content was not detailed. Today they the Japanese arm of the publisher followed up doing just that.

Here’s a handy list of all the DLC and of their content:

Booster Pack

You can get free powerful weapons that can give an advantage and make battles more exhilarating.

Episode Gladio

A new episode focused on Noctis’ companion Gladiolus; In this episode you can control Gladiolus as a playable character.

Holiday Pack

You can get free items that let you decorate the game and make it more colorful.

Episode Ignis

A new episode focused on Noctis’ companion Ignis; In this episode you can control Ignis as a playable character.

Episode Prompto

A new episode focused on Noctis’ companion Prompto; In this episode you can control Prompto as a playable character.

Expansion Pack

This expansion pack makes it possible to play a completely new  Final Fantasy XV.

Interestingly, in one instance within the announcement, the “expansion pack” is actually named “online expansion pack,” while elsewhere it’s just named “expansion pack.” A further hint to this appears to be included in the Japanese PlayStation Store listing, that comes with a warning about needing PlayStation Plus to participate in “online multiplayer.”

We reached out to Square Enix to ask for a clarification on this, and we’ll let you know if we hear something back.

The game will be released on September 30th for PS4 and Xbox One, while the release of each DLC package still hasn’t been dated.
