Ubisoft has detailed the post-launch plans for its latest family strategy game, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. In 2023, players will receive three DLC packs, but the first will only be available to Season Pass holders. The last pack will finally introduce Rayman as a playable character in the game.
The first DLC will be called ‘The Tower of Doooom’, which will add a new combat game mode in early 2023. However, only those who purchased the Season Pass will be able to access this pack as it won’t be sold separately.

Ubisoft provided an official description for The Tower of Doooom:
“Madame Bwahstrella needs Mario, Rabbid Peach and their friends to clean her multi-dimensional tower and save their old friend Spawny! Coming early 2023, this extension will add a new combat game mode in which players will face highly strategic battles as they make their way to the top of the Tower.”
The second DLC is still largely unknown, but it will apparently see players “confront a mysterious foe on a new, enchanting planet.” It’s expected to launch sometime in mid-2023.
The last DLC pack is the one fans were anticipating the most. Launching in late 2023, the third DLC will let players control Rayman as he teams up with Rabbid Mario and Rabbid Peach on a “surprising, fun and epic adventure.”
The second and third DLC packs will be sold separately, but The Tower of Doooom will only be accessible through the $29.99 Season Pass for some reason.
