And it’s available on Friday.
The last update for Xenoblade 2, update 1.3, launched at the beginning of the month, and was fairly substantial, adding a New Game Plus, alternate difficulty levels, and multiple quality of life improvements. The next update, which will be available tomorrow, on March 30, will not be as substantial from a functionality point of view, but will still be pretty important.
This update, you see, will be adding the second batch of quests that Nintendo promised to offer with the Expansion Pass for the game to the game. Of course, this isn’t where the Expansion Pass content ends, since a major, substantial new story addition to the game is due to come out later this year.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 launched last year exclusively on the Nintendo Switch, as Monolith Soft’s best realized game yet (in spite of multiple polishing and optimization problems), and a perfect capstone to the Switch’s excellent first year on the market.
