Square Enix will add a New Game Plus mode to Final Fantasy XV via patch on December 22 alongside a “Holiday Pack” DLC that will contain a bunch of goodies, the publisher announced today. Naturally, you’ll get more if you pay.

The New Game Plus mode is free and will be available to everyone, although Square hasn’t mentioned anything about a higher difficulty mode, so I don’t really see the point just yet. The patch will also let you add frames to Prompto’s photos when you share them online.

And then there’s the Holiday Pack. Here’s what you’ll get for free in this appropriately named DLC (via Square):

  • 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 – 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.

And here’s what you’ll also get if you own the Digital Premium Edition or buy the $25 season pass, which gives you the PREMIUM version of the Holiday Pack:

  • Ring of Resistance – A protective piece of jewelry that renders the entire party to be resistant to magical friendly fire.
  • Tech Turbocharger – A device for Noctis that accelerates the tech bar replenishment rate, but freezes the Armiger bar.

I for one am looking forward to this mysterious carnival.
