Although it should be noted that Square Enix is still to make any formal announcements for the Season Pass for Final Fantasy XV.
The version of the game available on PlayStore of the Digital Premium Edition simply reads that the Final Fantasy XV Digital Premium Edition contains the original Final Fantasy XV alongside a Season Pass. However, for those that have already digitally pre-ordered Final Fantasy XV there will be a Season Pass upgrade offer.
The purpose of this Season Pass is to allow the users to download additional contents. This Upgrade is a kind of special deal for gamers who have pre-ordered the digital edition of Final Fantasy XV, or at least that’s what the description says on the PlayStore.
The director of the game, Hajime Tabata, had said back in June that the Downloadable Contents, which will be made available after the launch of the game, shall contain additional costumes as well as additional story content. Further details about the DLCs shall surface as Square Enix give us more details about the Season Pass.
