Final Fantasy XV Holiday Update
The Final Fantasy XV team is showing their festive spirit with their first round of DLC for the holiday season!
Players will have access to the “Holiday Pack” which is free or they can get the premium “Holiday Pack +”, available December 22!
All players will also be able to download a free update which adds a New Game+ to the game. So, if you’ve completed the story, you can essentially restart the game and keep all the game-data intact, progressing once again for added fun/difficulty.
Starting on December 22, players will be able to gain access to new festive photo frames to choose from. [Frames can be seen below!]
The Holiday Pack + will be available to players who have purchased the Season Pass or the Digital Premium Edition, obtaining more exclusive in-game items over the free counterpart.
The Holiday Pack contains many useful accessories as well as a Carnival Passport to attend the Moogle Chocobo Carnival which takes place during the month of January.
The accessories available in the Holiday Pack are:
- Warrior’s Fanfare – A scroll of sheet music containing a song of jubilation that provides additional AP for earning an A+ in Offense outside of training.
- Nixperience Band – A device that stops experience points from being tallied, preventing the party from leveling up for an added challenge.
- Carnival Passport (As noted above) – An adorably adorned ticket that whisks the bearer away to a fun-filled carnival for a limited time.
- Choco-Mog Tee (available late January) – An exclusive T-shirt featuring everyone’s favorite fluffy and feathery friends. Colorful, comfy and appropriate for any carnival-goer. [Can be seen below]

- Tech Turbocharger – A device for Noctis that accelerates the tech bar replenishment rate, but freezes the Armiger bar.
