Booster Pack DLC, free and paid versions, will be available on the 21st too.

Another update on March 28 will amend the much-loathed Chapter 13 by adding additional powers for Noctis and new cutscenes.The Gladio paid DLC episode will also release on that same day. The Prompto DLC episode is set for June. Other possible features for future updates include a monster encyclopedia and off-road driving for the Regalia.
