Final Fantasy XV is treating fans to some DLC goodies over the holiday season. Final Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata confirmed to Japanese site Gamer what’s next for Square Enix’s latest hit.

Tabata shared the studio’s short and long-term goals to release content to enrich the Final Fantasy XV gameplay experience. The DLC list includes the following, according to a translation of the Gamer article on Neogaf:

Final Fantasy XV Holiday Pack
Final Fantasy XV Booster Pack
Final Fantasy XV Episode Gladiolus
Final Fantasy XV Episode Ignis
Final Fantasy XV Episode Prompto
Final Fantasy XV Online Expansion Pack: Companion

Tabata has yet to confirm the release date for the DLC content, but fans can expect the Holiday pack soon. Fans can also expect an update to Chapter 13 in the immediate future. Tabata mentioned “enhancements such as increasing the power of the ring’s magic.” This chapter has drawn criticism from Final Fantasy fans on the FFXV subreddit and elsewhere, who feel let down by the section’s linear gameplay and excessive use of jump scares.

There will also be new event scenes added in the second half of Final Fantasy XV , new playable characters in the main game and a possible avatar system to create original characters. Check out Tabata’s full plan for the Final Fantasy XV updates below.

Short-term goals

First, we will update the experience of Chapter 13’s gameplay. For that reason, we are undertaking many enhancements such as increasing the power of the ring’s magic. We will inform you of the details of updated content at a later time.

Mid-term goals

Updating the production of the second half of the game, further enhancing the experience of the story. For example, we are planning to add event scenes where “What happened to Ravus?” was from. In addition to the event scenes, voice responses and localization work to all languages will occur so we will work firmly on this as a mid-term goal. Details of the plan will be announced once it’s decided.

Long-term goals

We will make it possible to use important characters that appeared in the main game as playable characters. We will also consider adding an avatar system to create original characters. In addition to this, we will continue to actively update so that various players can enjoy Final Fantasy XV for a long time.

Hopefully the story “enhancements” mean the second half of the game won’t leave players feeling a bit rushed. A common complaint in the Final Fantasy XV subreddit is the second half of the game is lacking story content compared to the first part. Tabata has assured fans the team is actively working on improving the game.The planned expansion of the roster of playable characters is also sure to please fans eager to see more of characters like Cor, Aranea and Iris.
