The fourth DLC wave for the game is initially scheduled for April 30 and includes a new side story campaign. Cindered Shadows focuses on a new location below the holy monastery called “Abyss” (indicated by Anna in the last wave) with the Ash Wolves, a fourth house that Byleth can interact with. The new characters Balthus, Constance, Yuri and Hapi can probably be included in the main story.
The side story is also accompanied by a free update, the content of which is not yet known. Cindered Shadows will drop for Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ Expansion Pass owners on February 12th.
