The world of Final Fantasy XIV is deep within a storyline expansion known as Stormblood…what’s about to happen next? Square gave us some big hints today in the patch notes….wanna browse ’em?
The highlight of this update is the second chapter of the Return to Ivalice 24-man Alliance Raid, which revisits the world from Final Fantasy XII (and many other Square games). But there’s plenty more to do besides that:

- New 24-man Alliance Raid – The second chapter of the popular Return to Ivalice series takes players to the Ridorana Lighthouse.
- New Trial – A surprise players will have to discover for themselves.
- New Dungeon – Explore the abandoned mausoleum of the legendary hero who united Doma in The Swallow’s Compass.
- New Beast Tribe Quests: The Namazu – A new series focused on quests for the Disciples of the Hand and Land.
- Cross-world Linkshells – A new linkshell chat system will allow players to communicate across servers within their data center with ease.
- Updates to jobs, PvP, glamour system, housing, performance actions, new powerful gear and more.
