Final Fantasy 14 The Fan Festival started on Friday night in Japan with a keynote address from game producer and director Naoki Yoshida. As this was the last Fan Festival before Shadowbringer's expansion releases in the summer, Yoshida talked a lot about what they could expect and there were several big ads.
The story of Shadowbringers is going to take place in The First, which is a kind of alternative universe that splits from Hydaelyn, the world in which history takes place. Racers are different from what we normally know and that is never night. It is your job as the warrior of darkness to bring balance to the first.
If you do not have time to catch the stream, here are the main bits from the main menu:
An updated trailer published
While Not all of the trailer's content was brand new, it appeared from the new city that will be the center of Shadowbringer's history, as well as a dancing Viera woman who led to …
Dancer confirmed as a new DPS job
Dancer, the highly anticipated new job, is a varied DPS resembling Bard. It uses throwing weapons, just like the little ones that the model holds in key art. As expected, the dancer also dances well to perform his abilities. Some skills will even buff your party mates. The task of unlocking this job begins in Limsa Lominsa when Shadowbringers is published.
Crystarium and Eulmore revealed as new cities for patch 5.0 content
Crystarium is a beautiful city built around the Krystal Tower and it has some beautiful purple leaves and buildings with lots of natural lighting. This will act as the new hub for upcoming content.
The second city is Eulmore, a city built to live it up before the world ended. Why struggle inevitably when you can just party? Unfortunately, this means that all these resources must come from somewhere. While the upper part of the city is sumptuous and full of joyous nobility, the lower part of the city does not enjoy it well.
The new high-end raid content is called Eden
Since the first only has light and no other elements, the warrior of darkness has to introduce everything else to this world. The sign and boss design for this raid story is performed by Kingdom Hearts & CEO, and designer Tetsuya Nomura. The story has a girl named Gaia, although we don't know too much about her yet, except that she has a hammer.
Hrothgar becomes the second new playable race that locks Viera only to female characters
At the Paris Fan Festival Viera revealed, although the trailers only showed female characters. Instead of introducing male Viera, which is a rare and outcast species, Square Enix adds Hrothgar, a wild-like male race.
The third expansion Shadowbringers is released on July 2, 2019
Final Fantasy 14 is available on Windows, Mac and PlayStation 4.
