Square Enix confirmed today that the Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin DLC, which will be called A Different Future, will end Jack and his companion’s journey in just under a month.
The final DLC for the role-playing game developed by Team Ninja will be released on January 27th on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox for all Season Pass owners, as confirmed by the new trailer. The new trailer also shows off a new blaster weapon, Moogle’s first appearance in the first Final Fantasy universe, and a reconnection to Final Fantasy in a DLC logo that may indicate a connection to the second entry in the series.
Guided by a moogle spirit, Jack and his pals arrive in a city in alternate time and space for one last challenge.
The third and final expansion for STRANGER OF PARADISE FINAL FANTASY ORIGIN, A DIFFERENT FUTURE, will be available with a season pass on January 27 on PlayStation, Xbox, and the Epic Games Store.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin’s previous DLC, Wanderer of the Rift, launched back in October on all formats, but it wasn’t a particularly engaging experience, given the limited amount of new content it adds to the game, as I made clear in my review.
With a bit of additional story and gameplay content, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin – Wanderer of the Rift is yet another endgame expansion that doesn’t offer enough new features to make most players return to the world of Strangers worthwhile. Only hardcore gamers who want to explore the full potential of the game’s mechanics will find some value in an expansion that feels more disappointing than the one that came before it.
