Need to know more? Here’s the full rundown on Final Fantasy XIV update 6.2…
What secrets lie in darkness eternal? Five millennia ago, the great wyrm Azdaja vanished into the void, and for long years Vrtra had despaired of being reunited with his dear sister. With the encouragement of his people, however, he has found the resolve to search for her, and sets forth with the Warrior of Light for a world engulfed in Darkness...
Raid Dungeon - Pandæmonium: Abyssos
After a battle hard-fought, order has been restored to Asphodelos. However, the inner circles of Pandæmonium remain in the grip of a mysterious force, and the remaining warders are nowhere to be found. You and your allies steel yourselves to press forward, but what awaits in those unknown depths may shake even the most steadfast resolve.
New Dungeon - The Fell Court of Troia
Having uncovered the voidgate in the undersea treasure vault, you now seek to use it to travel to the Thirteenth. Beyond the emptiness of the rift awaits a shadowed castle swarming with voidsent, and you steel yourselves for a hostile reception.
Variant Dungeon - The Sil'dihn Subterrane
A request from a certain someone in Ul'dah has you packing your adventuring gear, and descending once more into the underground waterways of Sil'dih.
Criterion Dungeon - Another Sil'dihn Subterrane/Another Sil'dihn Subterrane (Savage)
Whereas variant dungeons are casual, story-based experiences which can be completed by solo players, criterion dungeons will challenge a party of four adventurers with battles of punishing difficulty. Criterion dungeons are available in two difficulty levels, and impose unique rules and restrictions─such as limiting character resurrections. Assemble a band of trustworthy comrades to overcome every obstacle and explore every corner of the subterrane!
New Unreal Trial - Containment Bay S1T7 (Unreal)
In the name of satisfying the faux commander's craving for harrowing tales, you hearken back to your fateful encounter with the dread eikon Sephirot, first pillar of the Warring Triad. The memory still looms as large in your mind as did the great Fiend, stirred from dreams of vengeance...
Find sanctuary in an island paradise abundant with wildlife, where crops may be sown and minions let to roam. What will you learn in nature's embrace─and what will you create from this newfound inspiration? Make ready to set sail, for your hideaway awaits!
Trial - ???
The Warrior of Light arrives in the void. And in that endless dark, they shall encounter a terrible new foe…
Main Scenario Revisions
The Duty Support system has been expanded to include five additional dungeons from A Realm Reborn and Heavensward, some of which feature key characters from the story. Certain trials have also been revamped for a smoother adventuring experience.
Final Fantasy XIV can be played on PC, PS5, and PS5. Update 6.2 will be available on August 23.
