Square Enix Reveals Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, the MMO’s Third Major Expansion

Square Enix has announced that a brand new expansion is heading to Final Fantasy XIV.

Of course Shadowbringers is also set to shake up the in-game universe of Eorzea, with the version 5.x series updates promising things will come to a head between the allied nations and the oppressive Garlean Empire, not to mention those ever mysterious Ascians.

To start off the the weekend, fans were shown a trailer for the game's next expansion: Shadowbringers. Players will become the Warriors of Darkness in the expansion, as opposed to the Warriors of Light.

The Final Fantasy XIV's annual fanfest announcements are over, and we now know about the MMO's next expansion.

No expansion would be complete without new places to explore as part of a new story, and Shadowbringers unveiled a handful of new locations including the swampy, ruinous Rak'Tika Greatwood alongside the geologically ravaged Amh Araeng desert region, according to US|Gamer.

Shadowbringers will also include nine new dungeons as well as new endgame and Alliance raids.

Hailey Baldwin Changes Username as Justin Bieber Praises ''Wife''
In an interview for Harper's Bazaar , the model gushed over her man, saying that 'He is incredible. "Every song, every feature. Just after she made this change, she also stepped out wearing a denim jacket which had "Bieber" written on its back.

We'll have more information as it arrives. With the release of the new expansion, Square Enix will end support for 32-bit Windows. That means Blue Mages won't be endgame viable for quite some time, as now the level cap is 70, with Shadowbringers bumping it up to 80 when it releases.

End-game content is coming for crafters as well, giving players the chance to restore the Holy See of Ishgard. This gives players the opportunity to recruit NPCs to aid them in tackling dungeons at times where a group of players would normally be used.

In addition, game director Naoki Yoshida teased a new race but wouldn't specify what it would be.

That statement was made in jest though because not long after he said that, Yoshida turned around and the camera panned in to show off the back of his t-shirt which showed Bugs Bunny to a roar from the crowd. Unlike other jobs, the Blue Mage will "provide a unique solo experience" and only learn abilities from other monsters, which is how the class traditionally works in Final Fantasy games. It can not be used in parties unless they are pre-made.

Characters include Solus Zos Galvus, the first emperor, who will play a very important role in Shadowbringers. Players will even be able visit other servers (provided they are in the same Data Center) with the aptly "World Visit" feature, to be implemented for testing just before the release of Shadowbringers. Players can move between worlds on the same data center.

With the Final Fantasy XIV team saving more content for the future Fan Fests, we can expect to see confirmation on numerous rumours now circulating in the FFXIV community. As Yoshi-P likes to say: "Please look forward to it!"
