Then in Autumn, players will get a new story that will feature an appearance from Eddy Gordo. This Autumn update will also add modes like Ghost vs. Ghost and Online Practice

Lidia will be available this Summer for players who buy the Season 1 DLC. Currently, there’s no word yet on a specific release date for Lidia.
