The last major update is about to come to Chocobo GP, as the final new characters and stage will show up in Season 5. Square Enix announced that after the patch goes live on December 21, 2022, it will mark the end of “large scale updates.” This also means Prize Pass system is ending and Mythril will no longer be sold. The in-game Mythril Shop will close on January 6, 2023. This means that Chroma, Volg, and the FFVII Midgar map will be the last major additions to Chocobo GP.
Square Enix also went over how things will work now that the Prize Pass and Mithril are being phased out. The Chocobo GP mode will remain with rankings. Mythril people own can still be used in the shop while it exists. However, there will be no refunds for it. Season 1 Exclusive Prize Pass level and Mythril Shop rewards, say like the playable Chocobo GP characters Cloud and Squall, could be sold in Gil and Ticket Shops going forward.
This comes as Square Enix revealed updates for Season 5 in Chocobo GP. As mentioned, Chroma and Volg from the Chocobo series will be playable. People can race on a FFVII Midgar course. Holiday-themed cosmetics will appear. People all also get 800 Mythril login bonus when the patch appears.
Square Enix also shared screenshots of the FFVII Midgar course.
Well then, let's mosey!
