Final Fantasy 15 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

We've been getting plenty of news out of Square Enix recently and this extends to the Final Fantasy series, too, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Well, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata has today announced release dates for the game's next three DLC packs – and it seems we don't have long to wait.

Booster Pack+ and Booster Pack (free version) – 21 February, 2017

First out of the gates is the so-called "Booster Pack". Details remain absent as to what, in fact, is included with this, but we speculate that it may be a small update similar to the rather bonkers but admittedly fun Holiday Pack which was released earlier in January. Of note is the fact there are two versions of this pack – a plus version for those with the Season Pass and a free standard version for everyone else.

Episode: Gladiolus – 28 March, 2017

Now this is where things start to get interesting. Since there's one pack for each member of Noctis' party coming in the next few months, we're assuming these will be more substantial story episodes to get to know each of the characters even better. First up is Gladiolus – the overbearingly gruff one with swoon-inducing muscles. And this episode will be somewhat sluggishly followed by...

Episode: Prompto – June 2017

We have a couple of months longer to wait for this one, but since the childlike Prompto was one of the more interesting (read irritating?) characters in the main game, this one is quite intriguing. Maybe we'll get a glimpse of the world through his candid eyes? Or get some more details on his past (wink wink)? That just leaves us waiting for Episode: Ignis and the enigmatically titled "Expansion Pack" – both of which Square Enix also announced as part of the Season Pass in addition to the above, which currently sells for £19.99 in the UK.

Have these release dates got your blood pumping? Are you ready to boost yourself back into the world of Noctis and co come February? Let us know in the comments section below.
