FFXIV updates players on DDOS attacks, teases Tuesday patch content
Square Enix said that the attackers shifted from targeting game servers to upper-tier ISP. By partnering with these providers, defenses against the attacks were bolstered. The studio warns that it might not be out of the woods: “This implementation has already been effective; however, there is the possibility that the attacks could occur again. Therefore, we will seek to strengthen our cooperation with the upper-tier ISPs and continue observing our defenses.”
As players breathe a sigh of relief, they can turn their attention to the upcoming Patch 4.05 this Tuesday. This update will add The Lost Canals of Uznair, a hidden dungeon that contains both monsters and treasures. The team posted a sneak peek of some of the sights and said that new music will accompany the instance.
