The first part of Final Fantasy XIV’s Patch 5.5 is coming April 13, with part two due in late May. Square Enix revealed a flashy new trailer, as well as several juicy new details, for the patch during the Letter from the Producer Live Part LXIII livestream today, so let’s dive in and find out what’s next for one of the biggest and best MMORPGs running right now.
The 5.5 patch, dubbed Death Unto Dawn, begins its arrival with part one on April 13, and producer Naoki Yoshida explained some of what’s on the way during today’s livestream event. Players can expect new main story quests, a new instanced dungeon, and new Chronicles of a New Era quests – specifically, the final chapter of the Sorrow of Werlyt.
The new dungeon, Yoshida said, supports the trust system that was introduced in Shadowbringers, which allows players to team up with up to three NPCs – meaning you’ll be able to enter and clear it solo, if multiplayer games aren’t really your thing.
