Following today’s reveal about Final Fantasy XIV’s upcoming expansion Shadowbringers, Square Enix sent a press kit including some really lovely artwork.
The artwork showcases the two new races included in the expansion, Viera and Hrothgar, which will be respectively exclusively female and male. We also see a lovely image of a dark knight.
Speaking of dark knights, the last artwork showcases a rendition of the unnamed base midlander (which fans often fondly call “derplander”) in Dark Knight gear, taking on the role of the “Warrior of Darkness.”
You can check them all out in the gallery below.
If you’d like to know more about Final Fantasy XIV and its upcoming expansion Shadowbringers, you can check out the details and footage released in the latest broadcast, information on the new races, the reveals from Tokyo FanFest including the Dancer job and the Hrothgar race, an official batch of screenshots, and a look on how the new city of Crystarium has been created.
Just a few weeks ago, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida himself also explained why there won’t be male Viera and female Hrothgar, and why the expansion won’t include a healer job. An official benchmark has been released to let you test your rig and check out the new races.
If you want to get ready before the expansion’s release, Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood is currently available for PS4 and PC. Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers will officially launch on July 2 for PS4 and PC.
