“Final Fantasy XV” has a ton of content that should keep you busy through the New Year, but if you’re looking for new quests and experiences, the publisher is releasing new DLC for the game later this month. Square Enix has detailed the first free holiday update for the newly released Final Fantasy installment, including a New Game+ feature, stat-boosting accessories and more.
The free game update, which is going by the name “Holiday Pack,” will be an alternative to the paid-premium “Holiday Pack +” DLC content. The publisher stated that all players will have the chance to download a free update for the game which adds a NEW GAME+ feature, allowing those who have completed the game’s main line story to start a new game with all previous gameplay data intact. Starting December 22nd, players will be able to get a new photo frame feature where players can choose from a variety of themed photo frames that can be applied to and accessorized with Prompto’s photographs.
