RUMOR: Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Datamines Hint at Future Content

Posted By   line's Avatar line   on May 21st, 2018 Report

Through the power of datamining, details about future DLC for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was revealed. However, nothing has been officially stated on the validity of these claims.

While diving into the game, these details were found about upcoming DLC and updates:

  • New Challenge Mode
  • Harder game difficulty
  • The ability to fine-tune your game difficulty
  • New quests
  • A new pouch item that gives 3000 trust
  • A new cylinder type
  • New accessories to try and break the game with
  • Level VI AUX cores
  • 2 new Blades that come with new weapons and a brand-new game mechanic
  • An “Awakening” mechanic for enemies similar to Pneuma and Pandoria’s
  • The “Unique Monster Subjugation Report” that keeps track of unique monsters you’ve killed
  • The ability to play as Jin
  • New superbosses including Rosa, and level 130-150 enemies

Before that, though, another datamine described the potential plot for the story DLC expected to release later this year. According to the datamine, the story would be set during the Aegis War. You get to control Addam but do not have the ability to use the Drive-Blade mechanic. Instead, characters are controlled separately with 7 Arts each. Addam cannot upgrade his weapon via core chips. Blade data for Jin, Malos, and Haze exist, suggesting they might be rewards or something separate from the story DLC. Lastly, two bonus Blades are suggested to be Shulk and Fiora from the original Xenoblade Chronicles. Shulk fights with the Monado and says his catchphrase, “I’m really feeling it.”

This is all a rumor about Xenoblade Chronicle 2's upcoming updates. But if they are true, that's going to be a huge update to the game, adding a ton of new content. I've really enjoyed my time with Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I even bought the expansion pass, and I never ever buy DLC.

These are going to be some very large updates to Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and I have a lot of hope for the game going forward. I'm also glad to see it getting so much support, it's a great series that deserves it, specially after the horrible localization and treatment Xenoblade Chronicles X got on the Wii U.
