After some ambiguity around the FFXV Season Pass earlier this week, Square Enix have clarified some details via their official blog.
The pass, which is included in XV’s ‘Digital Premium Edition’, adds six new pieces of content:
- Episode Gladio
- Episode Prompto
- Episode Ignis
- Booster Pack
- Holiday Pack
- Expansion Pack
The first three bits are presumed to be story expansions focused on Noctis’ chums, while the ‘packs’ are a little harder to guess at the contents of.
The post didn’t specify what the DLC was exactly, but emphasised (repeatedly) that none of it was cut content from the main game.
“The FFXV DLC is not content that has been cut from the main game just to sell to you later. This is really important because we want everyone who buys and plays the FFXV base game to know they are getting the full FFXV experience.”
Anyone who’s pre-ordered the digital, base version of XV can pick up the Season Pass upgrade to turn their copy into the Digital Premium Edition. Or for those who’ve pre-ordered a physical copy, a separate Season Pass will be available to purchase at a later date.
Finally, pre-orders of the Digital Premium Edition or Season Pass upgrade will receive a bonus pack, which includes (on both systems):
- Weapon: Masamune (FFXV)
- Angler Set (item)
- Camera Kit (item)
- Regalia recolour: Platinum Leviathan
- Regalia recolour: 16-Bit Buddies
Plus some console-specific bonuses. Pre-orders through PlayStation Store include:
- Big Bang Theme
- Digital Mini Sound Track
- Digital Premium Edition Original Theme (Working Title)
- Xbox Avatar – Noctis male costume
- Xbox Avatar – Noctis female costume
- Xbox Avatar – Carbuncle pet prop
The fact that the pass doesn’t come as part of the lavish, £200 ‘Ultimate Collector’s Edition’ is disappointing, and already ruffling feathers online, but what do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
FFXV is out for PS4 and Xbox One on September 30th.
