Receive an Armor Pass after updating the game

Once starting up the game after you download the update, you will receive an Armor Pass, similar to what Klara and Avery use to travel to the Isle of Armor from Wedgehurst Station.

You do not need to worry about picking this up somewhere on the ground. You can head out directly to the station to get to Wedgehurst.

2. Talk to the Man Next to the Ticket Gate

My wife bought Both DLCs before it even got out and we are still waiting for the pass but nothing happend. To top it off we even deleted the game and the save files and nothing. Waste of money and time, they shouldn't have made a DLC TBH.
