Here’s A New Look At Final Fantasy 14’s Exciting Dawntrail Expansion


During the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in Tokyo, Square Enix has made some exciting new announcements around the hugely-popular MMO as well as its upcoming Dawntrail expansion.

The publisher revealed that the game has now reached more than 30 million registered players globally, with plenty more for players to look forward to in the coming months including Patch 6.55 next week which will contain a number of updates and continuations of storylines as well as the upcoming Open Beta Test for the Xbox Series X|S version of the game which will kick off in February.

The big ticket news is, of course, a fresh look at the massive Dawntrail expansion which is set to launch in Winter this year and will include a host of exciting content and new features like graphical updates, new jobs, new locations, playable race, dungeons and plenty of story to uncover. Square Enix detailed some of what to expect alongside a brand-new full length trailer which also gives us a look at the new Pictomancer job – which looks incredibly cool.
