Final Fantasy XIV has gone dark for two days in preparation for the early access of the Endwalker expansion and its full patch notes have been released.
You can find them here and they include a ton of information on all the new goodies, content, and improvement we can expect from the expansion.
Of course, this includes more (likely awesome) storytelling, the male version of the Viera race, the Sage and Reaper jobs, and the new areas from Thavnair all the way to the Moon.
Yet, there are also plenty more subtle changes including new deliveries, recipes, gear, housing features and furniture, the “Derplander’s stubble” face option for male midlanders, new hairstyles, new monsters, new mounts, minions, and much more.
The maintenance will end on Dec. 3, 2021, at 1:00 a.m. PST when the gates of Endwalker will finally open for those who have pre-ordered the expansion. Everyone else will have to wait until the official release on release December 7.
If you want to see more about it, you can check out the latest details from a few days ago, the reveal of the extended trailer and the reaper job, that of the male viera, locations, and release date, and the launch trailer.
Final Fantasy XIV is currently available for PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC. The upgrade to PS5 is offered free of charge to those who own the PS4 version.
