Final Fantasy XVI DLC announced
Two narrative expansions planned, first is out today
Square Enix has announced plans for two new DLC chapters planned for Final Fantasy XVI.
Echoes of the Fallen is the first DLC and is available today. It unlocks a new story, battles, weapons, accessories, level cap and more. For players who have completed the required quests, this new adventure begins before the base game’s final battle, as strange, dark crystals begin to circulate on the black market. Players will follow Clive and his friends during their investigations as they encounter a group of suspicious traders, leading them to a long-abandoned Fallen tower known as the Sagespire.
Special bonus items for purchasing Echoes of the Fallen or the Expansion Pass include the Buster Sword, allowing Clive to wield Cloud Strife’s iconic weapon from Final Fantasy VII, and the “Away (1987)” Orchestrion Roll which allows a chip-tune version of the song “Away” to be played as background music in the hideaway.
The Rising Tide, the second DLC, is set to release in Spring 2024, and will bring new challenges and more, including the confrontation between Clive and the Eikon Leviathan.
Final Fantasy XVI was released earlier this year exclusively on PlayStation 5.
