Today Square Enix released the official artwork and new screenshots of the upcoming update 5.4 for Final Fantasy XIV, titled “Futures Rewritten.”
The beautiful artwork almost inevitably focuses on Ryne and Gaia, while we get a glimpse of some of the features coming with the major patch.
You can check them out below.
The main scenario quest will take a new turn after the conclusion of the storyline started with the Shadowbringers expansion.
“With Elidibus defeated and the fate of the First secured, the Scions make their long-awaited return to the Source. But in the new future they now look towards, will that which is written upon the pages of history be an anthem of hope…or a dirge of despair?”
We also hear about the new chapter of Eden’s raid.
“Ryne and her mysterious counterpart Gaia have succeeded in restoring balance to the elements of the Empty. Much of the credit goes to the Warrior of Light, whom they invite to observe whether life continues to flourish in the once-barren desert. While the flame of hope burns brighter than ever, this tale is far from over…”
“Matoya’s Relict” is the new dungeon that awaits us.
“The Makers’ Quarter was once home to some of the finest crafters Eorzea had ever seen, but it has lain in forgotten ruin since the Sharlayan exodus. It is there, hidden amidst overgrown foliage, that the entrance to the former workshop of the Archon Matoya can be found…”
Last, but not least, The Sorrow of Werlyt will bring a new chapter to the Chronicles of a New Era. Are we going to pilot our new mecha again?
“Gaius and the Warrior of Light are another step closer to thwarting the Empire’s warmachina development project after vanquishing the Sapphire Weapon. However, newly unearthed information alludes to another foe lurking in the shadows, and you must take decisive action before it is too late.”
