Fire Emblem Warriors 1.5.0 and Awakening DLC arrives March 29

Fire Emblem Warriors 1.5.0 and its third batch of DLC based on Fire Emblem: Awakening will arrive March 29.

The Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC pack will add Owain, Tharja and Olivia to the roster, and follows Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon in mid-February.

Owain brings Balanced Resonance to Fire Emblem Warriors by raising the damage dealt to enemies the smaller the character’s gap between strength and magic stats

Tharja, meanwhile, has a destruction pact which raises damage dealt the lower the character’s HP. However, if you equip the skill then it causes slip damage, gradually reducing the user’s HP.

Finally, Olivia has Galeforce which replenishes Musou and Awakening Gauges each time a strong enemy and officer is defeated.

There are also new costumes added with the DLC, including Exalt costume for Chrom, Sage costume for Lissa and Dark Flier costume for Cordelia.

Broken Armor models have also been added to all Fire Emblem: Awakening characters in the game.

New History Maps have been added based on Fire Emblem: Awakening as well, including Scion of Legend, Exalt Emmeryn and Caravan Dancer. This also includes access to exclusive weapons, like Robin’s Thoron, Lissa’s Healing Axe, Frederick’s Solid Axe, and Cordelia’s Love Spear.

There will eventually be three new Weapon Skills to the drop list, with Strike Rate and All stats+ being exclusive to Chrom and Tiki’s Amiibo weapons.
