Today Square Enix showcased the trailer and announced the release date of the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV update 6.1 “Newfound Adventure.”
The update will launch for PS5, PS4, and PC on April 12.
The trailer brings back a look at familiar heroes and you can consider it slightly spoilery as these pre-update trailers always are. So you should watch it at your own peril.
Appropriately, we take a look at the new beginning for the story and new adventures. Speaking of new, we get glimpses at new characters but mostly known and loved faces, including some that you may not expect.
You can check out the trailer below, including the version with Japanese voices if you prefer them.
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. The Endwalker expansion has been released a few months ago and you can read our recent review.
You can also read more about the changes planned for the longer term, including a refresh of the graphics.
Recently the game ended up being so successful that Square Enix had to suspend sales in order to alleviate the congestion of the servers. Luckily, they were recently resumed following the improvement of the situation of the servers.
