Final Fantasy XV Gets New Game +, More Holiday Content Coming Tomorrow

Final

For those of you who have been looking to expand their Final Fantasy XV gameplay experience in time for the holidays, we’ve got some good news.

Square Enix has announced that a number of holiday additions will be coming over the next day or so, including a variety of both free and premium updates. But perhaps the big one is already happening today, as a new patch for the game has added a New Game + mode, so players can check that out if they’re in the need for an additional challenge.

With the mode, players can restart a Final Fantasy XV session after completing the game, but they’ll have all their items intact for the more dangerous enemies, including weapons, magic and skills – and boy, will you need them.

The company has also laid out plans for the holiday DLC that will come starting tomorrow, including the following for free:

  • Warrior's Fanfare – A scroll of sheet music containing a song of jubilation that provides additional AP for earning an A+ in Offense outside of training.
  • Nixperience Band – A device that stops experience points from being tallied, preventing the party from leveling up for an added challenge.
  • Carnival Passport – An adorably adorned ticket that whisks the bearer away to a fun-filled carnival for a limited time.
  • Choco-Mog Tee (available late January) – An exclusive T-shirt featuring everyone’s favorite fluffy and feathery friends. Colorful, comfy and appropriate for any carnival-goer.

In addition, the following content will also open up for those that purchased the Premium Edition of the game, or, at the very least, the Season Pass.

  • Ring of Resistance – A protective piece of jewelry that renders the entire party to be resistant to magical friendly fire.
  • Tech Turbocharger – A device for Noctis that accelerates the tech bar replenishment rate, but freezes the Armiger bar.
  • Armiger Accelerator – A device for Noctis that accelerates the Armiger bar replenishment rate, but freezes the tech bar.
  • Blitzer's Fanfare – A scroll of sheet music containing a song of jubilation that provides additional AP for earning an A+ in Time outside of training.
  • Tactician's Fanfare – A scroll of sheet music containing a song of jubilation that provides additional AP for earning an A+ in Finesse outside of training.
  • Key of Prosperity – A lucky charm that increases the rate at which fallen foes leave behind items of value.
  • Stamina Badge – A device that enables Noctis to sprint and hang without expending stamina.
  • Carnival Passport – An adorably adorned ticket that whisks the bearer away to a fun-filled carnival for a limited time.
  • Festive Ensemble (available late January) – A fancy and fun outfit perfectly suited for enjoying the festivities. The darling design puts all who see it in high spirits.
  • Holiday Pack + Exclusive Photo Frames (available late January) – Additional themes the player can add to Prompto's photos when sharing over social media.

Indeed, it’s Christmas time around the Final Fantasy part. Enjoy, players!
