During the 2019 E3 Square Enix showcase, the company detailed its upcoming Final Fantasy XIV expansion, Shadowbringers, with producer Naoki Yoshida on stage and a brand new launch trailer.
In this trailer, we got a look at the the story including the “truth that must be known,” which included a new look at some of the characters coming to the expansion. We also got a look at some of the new enemies and mobs you’ll be taking on in the Square Enix game’s third expansion.
Within the trailer are some quick glances at the Dancer and Gunbreaker too. We recently went hands-on with the Gunbreaker and you can read about what we think of this new job here.
While not much gameplay was shown, the trailer gave us a healthy look at the game’s beautiful cinematics including some phrases that would get anybody caught up with Final Fantasy XIV excited like, “become the warrior of darkness.”
On top of that, we got a tease of primals. Gods to some and beasts to others, primals carry a lot of weight within Eorzea and we can’t wait to find out more about them.
How exactly all of this is to happen or what it all means is currently unknown, but we’ll find out soon when the expansion releases in just a few weeks on July 2.
