"Final Fantasy XV" appears to have reached another sales milestone this week. Square Enix announces that the game's overall digital sales and global shipment has surpassed six million units. In December of last year, the gaming company boasted over five million sales just a few days after its Nov 29, 2017 release date. The achievement has named it as the fastest-selling "Final Fantasy" game to date.

A press release states that the game will continue to add more content and other products related to the franchise. The goal is to obviously further enrich the player's experience. They have already released the free Holiday Pack content as well as the premium Holiday Pack+ DLC, which are still now available for download, as reported by Siliconera.

Square Enix also confirms that "Final Fantasy XV" players who have download the any of the Holiday Pack DLCs, will receive access to a special in-game event called "Moogle Chocobo Carnival." It will reportedly take place in Altissa and start on Jan. 24, a Tuesday and run for a limited time only. Gematsu also reports that the game is still expecting more premium DLC content in the near future.

Other gamers have recently discovered a lot of unused areas in the game's open world map. These players were able to access some areas through glitches in some points of the game. Digital Trends recently reported that a YouTube video shows a play discovering an semi-finished section in the Cartanica train station. They suspect that the area might have been planned as a mission location or could be used by one of the upcoming DLCs.

Last month, Square Enix's Haruyoshi Sawatari elaborates that the future DLC episodes of "Final Fantasy XV" will feature previously inaccessible areas. The recent reports of unfinished areas being discovered seem to support the company's claims for their upcoming premium content.
