‘Xenoblade Chronicles 2’ DLC Coming in September

Developer Monolith Soft is creating new downloadable content for its action role-playing game “Xenoblade Chronicles 2,” Nintendo revealed Tuesday during its E3 Direct.

Called “Torna — The Golden Country,” the new story mode will focus on the Aegis Malos and Jin, two central characters in “Xenoblade 2.” Players will get to uncover Jin’s full history and witness the fall of his homeland, Torna, which existed 500 years before the events of “Xenoblade Chronicles 2.”

“Torna — The Golden Country” launches on September 14 for expansion pass owners. The expansion pass costs $30 and includes the new DLC story mode, new quest packs, a rare blade pack, a new challenge mode coming this summer, and more. “Torna — The Golden Country” will also be available as a separate, stand-alone retail package on September 21.

“Xenoblade Chronicles 2” first launched in December 2017 and has sold over 1.3 million copies. As of March 31, it’s one of the top ten best-selling Switch titles.
