Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker expansion announced for fall 2021

Must read


Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy 14’s next expansion pack, Endwalker, will be released in fall 2021, and this new expansion pack will include two new jobs, a healer and melee DPS, and will bring players to the Moon.The new work of the healer is the Sage. There is no class required to play this new job which includes floating weapons called Nouliths, but players must have at least one character up to level 70.

The second new job will be revealed during the Final Fantasy XIV Digital Fan Festival 2021 which will take place from May 14 to 15, 2021. The Fan Festival will also bring with it special elements in the game, notably Lunar Whale Mountain (the first mounts for 8 people!) and three minions – Rydia, Edge and Rosa.

Endwalker and patch 6.0 will conclude the story of Hydaelyn and Zodiark and end the story that began in A Realm Reborn. Starting with Update 6.1, a whole new story will begin in the world of Final Fantasy 14.

Endwalker will also see the level cap raised to 90 and feature “massive new areas” begging to be explored, including the Imperial Capital of Garlemald, Thavnair, and the city of Radz-at-Han.

Fans of Final Fantasy X will also be happy to see Anima’s return as a new threat to face, and its design has been recreated by its original creator.

A new high difficulty raid – Pandæmonium – will also be added alongside a new Alliance raid series that seeks to reveal the secrets of the world of Hydaelyn.

The Trust System also gets a new ally to recruit, and this time is Estinien Wyrmblood from Heavensward.

Other additions include a new residential area known as Ishgard, down to the Golden Saucer, an island sanctuary that looks amazingly like Harvest Moon (“Raise animals, farm the land, and learn to live off the land! ”), and much more.

A new data center travel system is also in development that will allow you to travel to other worlds to play with friends.

Finally, it was revealed that Final Fantasy 14 will officially arrive on PS5 on April 13, 2021, in open beta. Although it is now available with backward compatibility, this version will be optimized for the new system.
