Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the latest installment in the acclaimed Xenoblade Chronicles series, has received yet another patch. Update 1.3.0 went live recently and brought compatibility support for the Expansion Pass Wave 3, which is now live. A handful of bug fixes and improvements were made as well.

Expansion Pass Wave 3 added new content to Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and fans can now try the new character Masha and play through her accompanying quests. A Challenge Battles mode, inspired by the rouge-like genre, has been added and playing it will unlock special new outfits. You can watch the trailer below.

Additional Functionality
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where some enemy models were placed where the name and enemy did not match.
    • Issues where some Testudos were called “Armadillo,” and some Armadillos were called “Velites,” respectively.
  • Fixed an issue where leveling from Class Rank 9 to 10 when clearing the final battle would not unlock Appearances that should be unlocked.
    • In the event that this has already occurred, downloading the update will fix the issue, unlocking the appearance.
  • Fixed an issue where completing Roald, Fla’ran, and Zooza Collectopedia entries would cause them to display the initial reward.
  • Fixed an issue in Challenge Battles where lowering the Effects volume in Audio Settings would still cause battle sounds and footsteps to sound comparatively loud.
  • Fixed an issue where sliding down a rope using a specific timing would cause party members to continuously be KO’d and resurrected.
  • Fixed an issue where pressing buttons using a specific timing during a loading screen would cause the Battle Menu to appear after launching the game.
  • Fixed an issue where successfully completing Mio’s Chain Order would not cause Attacker and Healer hate to decrease.
  • Fixed additional issues to improve the gameplay experience.

The complete patch notes are available on the official site.
