Earlier this week, we learned that the final DLC in the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass launches on April 25th, 2023. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass Vol. 4 – Future Redeemed is set before the events of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and players join a cast of new and familiar characters in an original story scenario that connects all three installments in the Xenoblade Chronicles series. Today, we get an even closer look at what to expect from Future Redeemed.

Affinity Goals

  • AP can be used to make Matthew and your party stronger

  • the leader of the Moebius

It's very strange to me that they changed the release date. It makes it release so close to TOTK! Now I don't think I'll get the dlc anytime soon because I know I won't have time to finish it before Zelda releases which means I won't even be playing it for at least a couple months. That December release date they had before was just perfect. Why screw the timing at the last minute?
