Update 1.03 has released for Final Fantasy XV and brings with it the New Game + mode. In New Game +, players can go through the story again but this time with the same equipment and level as when they finished.
The update brings with it more than just the New Game + mode to Final Fantasy XV. Prompto gets some new photo frames and all the information for the new holiday even is set up in this update. Here are the full patch notes:
Various bug fixes
New Mode: New Game+ (carry over certain data from a previous playthrough)
Additional bonus content
New Game+ allows players to begin a new game with most of the data from their previous save, including levels, items, weapons (except for the Engine Blade), Ascension Skills, skill levels, and costumes. All customization items unlocked for the Regalia will also be carried over, but the Type-F airship customization will not be.
The update also sets up the holiday event that will go live later this week. The holiday event is free for everyone but those with the season pass get some extra goodies. Here is everything included in the season pass edition of the holiday event:
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.
