Way back in November 2022, Square Enix announced that a free The Diofield Chronicle update would appear in March 2023. Now that it’s around the corner, the company offered more details about what to expect. In addition to the Waltaquin Redditch story, there will also be three other additions to the game. New teaser art also appeared showing a dragonic opponent.
Here’s Square Enix’s tweet going over this The Diofield Chronicle free update. It doesn’t offer a March 2023 release window beyond “soon.” It also notes Waltaquin’s Story as the first major addition. For those who played the game, they’ll understand the importance of getting this additional glimpse into what she experienced during the course of the adventure. As a Magicker, she used magic spells. As such, there will be Magic Tomes following the update.
A free update is coming to #TheDioFieldChronicle soon, including:
New scenario: Waltaquin's Story

Two of the updates won’t involve the additional storyline. Currently in The Diofield Chronicle, people can choose the Casual, Normal, or Hard difficulty options. The announcement mentioned Very Hard will be available. It also noted people with a New Game+ save could choose Extra Mode.
The DioField Chronicle is available on the PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and its free update will arrive “soon” in March 2023.
