Final Fantasy XIV

Final Fantasy XIV is hotter than its ever been, and today the game’s developers detailed what’s coming in the upcoming 6.1 update, entitled “Newfound Adventure,” in a typically longwinded “Letter from the Producer” livestream. The broad strokes are that update 6.1 will introduce a new chapter in Final Fantasy XIV’s core story and a series of sidequests featuring the upbeat Tataru. You can also look forward to a fresh form of PvP called Crystalline Conflict, another dungeon, a new residential district (Empyreum) to put down roots in, and more.  You can check out the full Letter from the Producer livestream below, provided you have around two hours to spare.
