Final Fantasy XVI The Rising Tide DLC

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XVI’s The Rising Tide DLC will be released on PlayStation 5 on April 18, 2024. Players will also receive a free update (Ver. 1.30) providing quality-of-life improvements on the same day.

The Rising Tide is a story-based DLC that takes place before the final chapter of the main game.

An unmarked letter arrives at the hideaway containing a most curious request: the Dominant of Leviathan, the long-lost Eikon of Water, needs rescue. To heed this call, Clive and his companions must journey to Mysidia—a hidden land under a blue sky—where they will uncover the tragic history of a forgotten people. 

What is included in The Rising Tide DLC?

The Rising Tide DLC includes brand new story content as well as new gameplay additions outlined below:

  • New Leviathan Eikonic ability set: Clive will obtain new Eikonic abilities of Leviathan the Lost.
  • Level cap increase: The level cap will be increased to level 60 in Story Focused Mode and Action Focused Mode and level 110 in Final Fantasy Mode (New Game+).
  • New locations and threats: New side stories to learn more about the area and people of Mysidia. Encounter new enemies such as tonberries, which can be found in new locations exclusive to DLC.
  • New endgame battle content – Kairos Gate: Once The Rising Tide DLC and the main game are completed, access to Kairos Gate will be unlocked. Plumb the depths of a virtual underworld, vanquishing waves of enemies to earn points and find new materials and weapons to upgrade for Clive.
  • Special bonuses: Fans who purchase The Rising Tide or the Expansion Pass will receive the “Curtana” signature weapon from Final Fantasy XIV and “Torn from the Heavens” and “Through the Maelstrom” Orchestrion Rolls, which can be played as background music in the hideaway.


What is included in Ver. 1.30 of Final Fantasy XVI?

A free update (Ver. 1.30) will also be available for all Final Fantasy XVI players on April 18 which will add quality-of-life improvements for the full game, including:

  • Icon updates for important character quests
