Final Fantasy XV May Have More DLC Beyond Its Season Pass

Final Fantasy XV May Have More DLC Beyond Its Season Pass

The Season Pass revealed for Japan will include six episodes, but there's potentially more content waiting out there.

We already know that Final Fantasy XV will have a Season Pass, offering six additional DLC packs for the game. The Season Pass itself will cost players $24.99, according a leak of the item on the North American PlayStation Store.

According to a translation of the Japanese PlayStation Store item by Gematsu, three of those packs will highlight protagonist Noctis' party members - Gladiolus, Ignis, and Prompto - with new story content. Two of the packs give players new weapons or holiday-themed items. The final pack is listed as the "Online Expansion" pack, offering a new, undisclosed Final Fantasy XV experience.

In an interview with Famitsu (translated via Gematsu), Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata hinted that there is more DLC beyond the Season Pass.

"That's not everything," Tabata said when asked about potential DLC. "Those are what we've announced today, something we've decided that we'll certainly do. If we decide to make downloadable content outside of the Season Pass we're currently selling, then that will be the case. Although there's a lot right now that isn't clear."

Tabata explained that the team wants to add more costumes and cooking recipes to the Final Fantasy XV once they've finished polishing the main game. He also outlined the game's overall structure, noting that while the first half of the game is open-world, the latter half is fairly linear.

"For Final Fantasy XV, we've put in both open world parts and linear parts to make up the game's full structure," said Tabata. "The first half is a continuous open world, but the second half is story-driven and progresses linearly. By doing this, the entire game is tightened so that the open world doesn't get tiring, and so that you can also get a taste of traditional Final Fantasy progression. If we assume you'll play only the main routes of the first and second halves, it'll take about 40 to 50 hours."

Final Fantasy XV is currently coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 29.
