Final Fantasy XVI's first DLC is out now, with a second expansion coming in 2024
Square Enix released the first DLC for Final Fantasy XVI, Echoes of the Fallen, shortly after its announcement, with a follow-up set to arrive in spring 2024.
The trailer for the two expansions debuted at The Game Awards, with Square Enix and Sony releasing Echoes of the Fallen shortly after. The first DLC costs $9.99 on its own, or fans can purchase an expansion pass for $24.99 to receive both at a discounted price.
The new Echoes DLC chapters take place just before the end of the main story, with new enemies and bosses for Clive and company to face in a new quest. The Rising Tides, on the other hand, appears to be a much brighter and larger expansion, with boss battles against the Tonberry King and Eikon Leviathan.
FFXVI received generally positive reviews for its action combat system, which was designed by Devil May Cry combat designer Ryota Suzuki, as well as its stunning visuals. However, its simplified RPG mechanics and more linear design caused a divide among franchise fans who preferred the series' older style.
