Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is already a staggeringly expansive game on its own—made even more so by the new game plus mode added last month—but Monolith has been progressively adding even more content to the game through DLC releases. These additions have largely been superficial, mostly Blades and items and such, but an upcoming update will be adding in a new chapter that adds new story content. Though the update still isn’t out yet, dataminers claim that they’ve found information in the most recent patch which leaks details of the forthcoming extra chapter.

Apparently, the chapter will take place during the Aegis War—before the events of the game—and will be tossing the Driver-Blade mechanic form the core game. Instead, you’ll directly control characters like Mythra, Addam, and Lora, all of which will have seven arts. Blade data for Jin, Haze, Malos has also been spotted, suggesting that you can obtain them. Also, Shulk and Fiora will apparently be Blades as well, and Shulk of course says “I’m really feeling it”. Now, none of this is official yet, but it certainly should lead to some interesting revelations if the datamine is accurate.

What do you think? Have you bought the Season Pass for this? Do you think the leak is accurate? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
