Final Fantasy XVI Getting Free Update and Two DLC Expansions

Final Fantasy XVI has been received very well since it was released this year. The game has been praised for its mature story, crazy moments during gameplay, and astoundingly good-looking visuals. We had a lot of great things to say in our review of Final Fantasy XVI. But it looks like extra goodness is coming to FFXVI for fans wanting to see more. Square Enix plans on adding more content for players to download, as well as updating the game with additional features. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a PC version on the way too!

Square Enix took to their social media, as well as at a panel during PAX West, to announce two new expansions that will be coming to Final Fantasy XVI. There will also be a free update available starting now. Everyone who owns the game on PlayStation 5 can boot up their console and get the new update. In addition, a PC version of Final Fantasy XVI is set to release before the end of the year.

Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida was part of a special video that Square Enix posted on their social media pages. In the video, Yoshida talked about the free update and what fans can expect in the near future for the game. “Allow me to take this opportunity to officially announce that development on a PC version is currently underway. I hope to be able to give you more information on both the upcoming DLC and the PC version before the end of the year, so please stay tuned.”

The new update for the game, Version 1.10, includes options for customizable costumes, as well as a new onion sword for players to equip to Clive. The other additions from the update include cool-down displays for abilities in the skill menu and changes to the game’s arcade mode. A full listing of all the changes with the update is detailed in a post that Square Enix shared on Twitter.

For many, Final Fantasy XVI is a huge success that has moved the series forward in many ways. While some reviews criticized the game for getting further away from traditional role-playing game elements, others heavily praised the game for trying something different with its overall gameplay. The combat has been one of the beloved aspects of the game, which leans heavily on action. For the upcoming DLC expansions that were announced, Square Enix has not yet announced a release date or timeframe fans can expect to see them. Some players believe these two expansions could dive into a part of FFXVI’s story that overlooked the lost Eikon Leviathan. But for now, we’ll have to wait long to see where the story of FFXVI will go next.
