Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is getting a tonne of DLC

by Oliver BrandtNovember 7, 2017

Tonight’s Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Direct showed a lot of content. But for all the content they showed off, there’s even more in the wings.

Announced towards the end of the Direct, Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s DLC will last for almost a year after launch. It also seems like some of the DLC, like support items and new quests, will continually be added. We’ve detailed the launch schedule (with Australian seasons) below:

  • Starting December 2017 — Support items for your journey
  • Starting January 2018 — New quests for the main game
  • Autumn 2018 — New Rare Blade
  • Winter 2018 — New Challenge Battle Mode
  • Spring 2018 — A brand-new story and adventure

In order to access this DLC, you’ll need to purchase an Expansion Pass and, like Breath of the Wild, the content cannot be purchased separately. The Expansion Pass will cost £26.99/€29.99 in Europe, though it’s not yet known how much it will cost in Australia. We’ll be sure to update this article when we know.

In the meantime, you can watch the full Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Direct below:

    I just pre-purchased the game+season pass on the eShop, grand total of $134.95.

    The game on its own costs $89.95, so that puts a value of $45 on the season pass (presuming no discounts buying it as a bundle)
