Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass DLC: Content, Price, and How to Buy

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is coming out with a new Expansion Pass that will give you many new things. Here is all you need to know about this new expansion pass.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3, as the name suggests, is the third game in the series. It is an action JRPG where you control a group of characters. The game tells a good story using all these characters. The combat starts simple and gets more complex as you progress through the game.

Since it is the 3rd game in the series, the question is whether you need to play the other two or not. And the answer to the question is no; you don’t need to. The game has a self-contained story; if you have played the other ones, you may pick up on a few extra things, but playing the other ones is unnecessary.

The expansion pass for the game adds a lot more stuff on top of the base game. So you will want to get it if you are a fan of the series. We have listed everything you need to know about Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass DLC.
