Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Now Available

The latest expansion to Square-Enix’s critically acclaimed MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV launches today – Shadowbringers. Square-Enix also reported record heights in their registered accounts, breaking the 16 million mark. Shadowbringers takes the game in a whole new direction, a world beyond Hydaelyn. For the first time, they journey to the First, the realm of Novrandt. It’s up to the Warrior of Light to become the Warrior of Darkness, and restore the night to this land, and save it from the Flood of Light, and the apocalypse it threatens. A wealth of new features are arriving with this expansion, which is listed below. Players can also look forward to the YoRHA: Dark Apocalypse 24-man raid in the future, written by YOKO TARO and Yosuke Saito of NieR fame. A new high-end raid is also on the way, “Eden”. This raid will feature a new character designed by Tetsuya Nomura himself. This will come on July 16th, 2019, with Patch 5.01. If that weren’t enough, the Restoration of the Holy See of Ishgard is also coming, to offer end-game content for Crafters/Gatherers.
