Final Fantasy XIV is long-term, and now Square Enix is revealing what to expect from Update 6.1: newfound adventure, which will appear in mid-April.
While there was already some information about things to expect over the next few updates, we now know exactly what the plan is for April. Newfound adventure brings new main scenario quests to complete, along with new side quests – Tatarus Grand Endeavor – and new tribal quests – The Arkasodara. The latter two will arrive in patch 6.15. If you need more to keep your time adventuring, Somehow Further Hildibrand Adventures is also coming in 6.15 and Omega: Beyond the Rift will be released within the 6.1x framework.
The April patch also launches and improves the promised duty support system A kingdom rebornMain scenario quests (2.0). There’s a new dungeon, a new trial, The Endsinger’s Aria, a new Unreal trial, Ultima’s Bane, and a new Alliance Raid. There are both new PvE and PvP challenges as in 6.11 there is also a new Ultimate Duty, Dragonsong’s Reprise, and Crystalline Conflict that are new to PvP.
A new residential district, Empyreum, comes along with new Custom Delivery (6.15) and Adventurer Plates. There will even be additional chapters for those running New Game+. This is in addition to new mounts, emotes, and minions. And a slew of technical improvements, like the Data Center Travel patch coming in 6.18 and an ability to try on items from the FFXIV online store.
The Data Center Travel feature allows players in different regions to play together, so pay attention to this feature.
The roadmap for the set of features it contains Newfound adventure is quite busy, so we can expect these to roll out during the appropriate sequence of updates, but support is strong. After Naoki Yoshida recently stated that they are looking long-term and preparing for the next decade, this list shows the beginning of those plans and is a very good place to start after that endwalker.
