Final Fantasy XVI DLC packs “Echoes of the Fallen” and “The Rising Tide” announced

Final Fantasy XVI

Square Enix has announced not one but two Final Fantasy XVI downloadable content packs, one of which is already out today.

The first DLC pack, “Echoes of the Fallen”, is now available for PlayStation 5 (via the PlayStation Store), while the second DLC “The Rising Tide” isn’t coming out until next spring.

You can purchase each DLC pack individually for $9.99, or the Expansion Pass for both which is priced at $24.99.

Here’s a rundown on the new content, plus a trailer:

As the sun sets over the land of Valisthea, strange, dark crystals begin to circulate on the black market. Could they be the sinister fruit of a long-slumbering Mothercrystal—one the world never knew existed?

Setting out in search of answers, Clive and company encounter a group of suspicious traders. Their trail leads them to a long-abandoned Fallen tower known as the Sagespire and the terrible secrets that await within…

New Story Quest Unlock Conditions

The new quest will become available after unlocking Origin as a destination on the world map and completing the quests “Where There’s a Will” and “Priceless.”

Special Bonuses

  • Buster Sword – Wield Cloud Strife’s iconic weapon from FINAL FANTASY VII.
  • Away (1987) Orchestrion Roll – Liven up the hideaway with a new background music track.
