Final Fantasy 14 is gearing up to end the 5.0 cycle, welcoming Death Unto Dawn, patch 5.5, this April 13. On the heels of its launch, Square Enix shared a new trailer via the game’s livestreamed update specials with director and producer Naoki Yoshida.
The MMO’s next patch will conclude the latest storyline that has been building since the ending of Shadowbringers in patch 5.3. The latest expansion was released in the summer of 2019, and Endwalker will follow this fall.
Your Warrior of Light will see the return of not-so-welcomed faces with patch 5.5, something teased since the launch of Shadowbringers years ago. 5.5 also marks the conclusion of the Nier 24-man raid tier, adds the fight against Diamond Weapon, and ushers in a new step to the Relic Weapon questline. In the latest trailer, we see all of the realm’s major players, including city-state figureheads like Ser Aymeric, Kan-E-Senna, Nanamo Ul Namo, and others. You can check it out below for yourself.
Death Unto Dawn looks like it’s filled with plenty of character throwbacks, giving you a glimpse of folks and beasts you haven’t seen around Eorzea in quite some time. Judging from the last few seconds and shots of the primals, some major twists are in the pipeline for Warriors of Light everywhere.
Director and producer Naoki Yoshida has already mentioned that the storyline for the upcoming Endwalker expansion will mark the end of a major saga, the Hydaelyn and Zodiark story arc, which has been the guiding narrative since A Realm Reborn. With the new 6.0, we’ll see the addition of new classes, like the Sage, a level cap increase, new areas, and the Ishgard Residential District.
This month marks the last one before Final Fantasy 14’s digital Fan Festival on May 14. The event is where fans suspect more details on classes, bosses, and plot will be revealed – along with a final cinematic trailer and the exact fall release date. Normally, Fan Fest is a series of in-person celebrations around the upcoming Final Fantasy 14 patch, but events for 2020 and 2021 were cancelled due to Covid-19 safety concerns.
