Following the announcement of the release dates of the next DLC packages for Final Fantasy XV, which happened at the Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary event at the Toho Cinema Roppongi Hills venue in Tokyo, Square Enix followed up with a press release containing the first screenshots.
We get to see the promotional image of the Magitek Exosuit DLC, that will be included in the “Booster Pack (free version)” and “Booster Pack+” DLCs that will launch on February 21st. As you can imagine, the free version will be downloadable for everyone who purchased the game without any additional cost, while the “Plus” version is exclusive to Season Pass holders.
The suit makes the party invincible for thirty minutes, but then requires 24 hours to recharge.
Moving on to the “Episode Gladiolus” DLC, we get the first screenshots, and a few info. We learn that Gladio, who will be the protagonist of the episode, fights differently from Noctis, providing fresh gameplay, and the iconic Final Fantasy XV character “Gilgamesh” will also appear.
This DLC will be available with no additional cost to players who purchased the Premium Edition or the Season Pass, and will also be purchasable for everyone else on the PlayStation Store or Xbox Live marketplace on March 28th.
Last, but not least, more content for the current “Moogle Chocobo Carnival” in-game event will be delivered with a patch on February 2nd.
No information was provided today about the DLC coming after Episode Prompto (which will come in June), but we already know that we’ll get Episode Ignis and a further expansion that will add online co-op to the game.
Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One, and you can check out our review if you want to know more. The game also won both of our Game of the Year awards, picked by our staff and by our readers.
