Titled 'Through the Maelstrom,' patch 2.2 of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn features a giant sea serpent, new dungeons, expanded main and side quests, and more character customization.
Through the Maelstrom will add content to the main questline involving the beast tribes of Eorzea and their attempts to summon their destructive Primal protectors as well as the plight of a group of refugees from across the sea. Two new sidequests will also be added focusing on a certain obnoxious detective and his partner as well as a questline that pits players against Final Fantasy staple Gilgamesh.
But wait, there's more!
Two entirely new dungeons are being added as well, alongside revamped, harder versions of lower level dungeons, giving experienced players a chance to go back and enjoy a fresh, more challenging take on well-traveled ground.
Finally, there are several enhancements to character customization that include new hairstyles, jobs, and the ability to glamour. Glamour works by taking the appearance of one piece of armor and giving it to another, so now players can look good, regardless of what gives their character the best stats!
Through the Maelstrom will release March 27 and Final Fantasy XIV will be available on PlayStation 4 on April 14.
Do we have any FF XIV players out there? Are you interested in the patch? Will it be enough to bring more players into the fold?
