Fire Emblem: Three Houses Expansion Pass DLC Includes Stat Boosters, New Battles, and Stylish Glasses for Byleth

Dress up and get down to more fighting.

Owners of Fire Emblem: Three Houses' Expansion Pass no longer have to worry about Byleth's eyesight thanks to second wave of pass DLC. The new wave of content for Nintendo's turn-based strategy title includes five Auxiliary Battles, a new background music track for Auxiliary Battles, four stat boosting items, a new outfit for most of the game's students, and (best of all) some tasteful spectacles for Byleth.

You can access the new content if you've bought the pass and downloaded the latest update to Three Houses. The five new Auxiliary Battles, new student attire, and glasses should all appear in their respective menus when you load up the game. If you'd like to check out the game's new song, "Corridor of the Tempest," you'll find it in the game's option menu.

Those stat boosting items, grouped together as the Sacred Items Set, can be found near Byleth's bed. Each has a different bonus: +2 movement, +7 to maximum HP, +3 to speed, and +3 to strength. They should come in handy if you decide to tackle the new "Maddening Mode" difficulty setting, which the latest update has added to Three Houses as a free addition for all players.

The expansion pass costs $24.99 USD, and it'll continue to dole out waves of add-on story, battle, and outfit content until April 30, 2020. A bug related to the Three Houses Expansion Pass that prevented the game from booting up was fixed by the latest Switch firmware update. For more on Three Houses, we've got guides on everything from romance options to the game's Amiibo Gazebo, as well as a totally definitive, not at all arbitrary or debatable ranking of every teacher and student in the game.
