Stone monument Soft has issued its latest update for the Nintendo Switch select RPG Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Update 1.2.0 is presently live in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and makes simply a handful of relatively small changes to the game. In any case, it also is a key stage in a major addition to the game, namely the new Expansion Pass wave of content. For Switch proprietors hoping to get back to the universe of Aionios and placed in a couple of additional hours on top of the handfuls necessary to finish Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s story, this is that open door.
The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass has promised three waves of content. The primary wave of DLC arrived on July 29 presenting all-new accessories, outfit variety variants, and rewarding various monetary forms. It was an immediate wave of largely insubstantial substance to encourage the purchase of the Expansion Pass at launch. Wave 2 adds Challenge Battles, a new legend named Ino, and considerably more outfits. Wave 3 further expands Challenge Battles, adds a new legend as well as additional missions, and more outfits. Lastly, Wave 4 adds a completely new scenario.
Patch 1.2.0, presently available in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, is similar in nature to Patch 1.1.0, which arrived on launch day. The 1.1.0 patch was necessary to enable capability of the primary wave of the Expansion Pass. Patch 1.2.0’s main capability is to enable the receipt of Expansion Pass Wave 2. As such, to download and play the new Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass content, players also have to be updated to Patch 1.2.0.
There are different changes and fixes in Patch 1.2.0 included as well. Stone monument Soft took the valuable chance to incorporate changes where it made sense in the update. Changes incorporate the ability to purchase Soyprimo Sauce at the City Caravan Shop and an increase with the impact time reward for Combination Arts utilizing the Flash Fencer’s Acceleration Art.
Fixes in the update incorporate the ability to open Collectopedia passages for Gogol Dalm and Gogol Olipple, which beforehand weren’t working, an audio issue spinning around falling in battle while the screen faded to black, and other vague changes to “work on the gameplay experience.” Players should discover these invisible gameplay changes all alone, it appears.
Overall, this is a relatively inconsequential update to Xenoblade Chronicles 3 other than it being expected to access Expansion Pass content. As noticed, the update is available to download now. The following wave of Expansion Pass content, and a reasonable accompanying update, is tentatively planned for release in late April 2023.
