Square Enix shared today that Chocobo GP‘s first season will be extended to May 30th, increasing the amount of time players can collect Cloud and Squall as playable racers by spending Gil, an in-game currency obtained by levelling up a pass and participating in daily and weekly challenges, but can also be pumped with microtransactions — a source of much derision from fans after the game was sold at a premium price.
Additionally, Gil you obtain during Season 1 will carry now carry over to Season 2 instead of being converted into a seasonal score, which, seems like a good idea if a new round of racers and other features obtainable through these currencies are incoming. Full details on Season 2 will be coming soon, but Square Enix states that time attack rankings for all courses will be reset with the new season’s debut.
