Fire Emblem Fates hasn't even hit Europe yet, but our American and Japanese counterparts have a full DLC release schedule ahead of them leading into June.

The first map pack - In Endless Dreams - will be available from May 5th and can be grabbed for the small fee of 49 cents. From then on, weekly packs will be released adding additional maps, story and characters, costing $1.99 each.

You can also purchase the flat Map Pack 2 for a bargain price of $7.99 which ensures you receive all content packs as they release. If you buy the packs individually, it'll cost you in the region of $10.

Unlike Map Pack 1, these stages will tell an overarching narrative that spans dimensions, focusing on the Hoshidan and Nohrian children. You won't be able to use levelled units from the main game to lend support, so you'll have to build up a new team to confront the threat.

The map pack release schedule looks like this.

  • May 5 - June 9 - Map Pack 2 ($7.99)
  • May 5 - l: In Endless Dreams (49 Cents)
  • May 12 - ll: Realms Colide ($1.99)
  • May 19 - lll: The Changing Tide ($1.99)
  • May 26 - IV: Light's Sacrific ($1.99)
  • June 2 - V: Endless Dawn ($1.99)
  • June 9 - End: Lost in the Waves ($1.99)

Additionally, a free bonus download 'Another Gift from Anna' is available from May 5th for those who own Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright or Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest. This provides players with additional Boots and Paragon items.
