Final Fantasy 16’s First Story DLC Is Echoes Of The Fallen, Out Today

Final Fantasy 16’s first story DLC has been revealed at The Game Awards and it’s out tonight.

Final Fantasy 16’s first story DLC, Echoes of the Fallen, has been revealed at The Game Awards 2023 and it’s going to be released later today.



The Game Awards 2023 is live right now and it’s been full of awards and game reveals, such as Dragon Ball: Sparking Zero, Light No Fire, and a ton of others. There’s also been some updates for existing games, including Final Fantasy 16 which got one of the show’s only shadowdrops for its first story DLC.


Are Four Years Of Multiverse Stories Going To Ruin Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth For Me?

The amount of multiverse stories has rapidly increased since Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Will that negatively impact Rebirth?

The reveal trailer for Echoes of the Fallen revealed that it’s going to take place before the events of the main story. We see Clive and Joshua getting some kind of crystal and activating it to reveal a large tower full of enemies that they must defeat. Not much was revealed about the story impact that the DLC is going to have, but we do at least know that it won’t be changing the ending at all.

Funnily enough, Final Fantasy 16 originally seemed like it wasn’t going to get DLC at all, as Yoshi-P seemed intent on delivering a story that didn’t need DLC. That didn’t stop fans from speculating that a mysterious crystal that could be found in Sanbreque and went unused in the base game could eventually be featured in an expansion.

After a month or so of speculation, it was finally confirmed that Final Fantasy 16 would be getting two paid DLC expansions alongside a PC release. Since then, the developers have teased that the expansions will expand Clive’s story and focus on darkness and mystery. That sounds like it’s not going to give us the Cid DLC that every fan has been asking about, but we’ll have to wait and see.
