Final Fantasy XIV outlines its patch and information plans leading up to Shadowbringers

We sincerely doubt that any Final Fantasy XIV fans need to be reminded that Shadowbringers releases on July 2nd, with early access beginning on June 28th. No doubt you’ve already done the prep work required (especially gauging by how many Aetheryte Earrings you see in the game). But there is more stuff coming out between now and the expansion release, starting with the long-awaited Final Fantasy XV collaboration event that kicks off on April 16th. It’s all right there in the digest of the last Letter from the Producer, now fully translated and summarized after the final fan festival in March.

Players can expect the World Visit feature to go live when the American data center split occurs on April 23rd, with one final patch going live in mid-May for a last few adjustments. May is also when a new system change overview will be released, as well as the month of the benchmark release (complete with character creation) and a planned media event to preview the new jobs and job changes. So you’ve still got some 80-odd days to wait until the expansion release, but there’s a stream of content planned before the release date just the same.

It’s an exciting time to play FFXIV right now. I love all the fluff leading up to the expansion release and I can’t wait to get my hands on the benchmark.

I’m so excited to see what new skills and traits we’ll be getting from 70-80. Especially the Job Actions video, remember how hype it was to see Bahamut come down for Summoner in the 70 actions preview.

I really really hope we get an increase to glamour storage.

Always need more Armory storage, too.

Also, it would be nice if they work the system into 1 method instead of glamour storage, armory, bank, etc. That would be awesome.

I need extra storage for all the darkness I’m about to get.

Apparently! But you can’t make a bunny boy so the game is dead to me. All the work they put into it, all the extra stuff, doesn’t matter. Game is a joke without bunny boys. /s

There’s always bunny ears. :3
