Final Fantasy XIV Trailer for The Far Edge of Fate Brings New Adventures
Square Enix reveals the trailer for the upcoming The Far Edge of Fate (Patch 3.5) update, which will bring a ton of new content to Final Fantasy XIV.
The developer recently announced a second expansion pack, Stormblood, that introduces the Red Mage into the roster of available classes later this year.
One of the major improvements in the new patch is an updated Party Finder that will now allow players from other servers to get into the party so long as they are playing in the same data center. Player vs Player is also receiving updates for both Frontline and Duel modes and finally, a new map called The Feast is coming in this patch.
The new areas you and your party will explore are Baelsar's Wall, which acts as a border between the Garlean Empire, and the three city-states of Eorzea. Veteran players will be happy to revisit Sohm Al, the holy ground of the dragons.
Finally, the newest chapter of the Shadows of Mhach story arch will be available along with with a new raid, exploratory missions, and a fight against the last member of the Warring Triad.
The trailer explores the new content you discover in the update in full detail such as Containment Bay Z1T9, new beast tribe quests, hair styles and gear.
The Far Edge of Fate update is coming to Final Fantasy XIV on January 17th. The Stormblood expansion pack will come to North America, Japan, and Europe on June 20. Expect to see more updates at Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival Europe in Frankfurt, Germany on February 18th and 19th. Note that tickets are limited, so book fast.
