'Final Fantasy XIV' (ALL) Endwalker Expansion Gets Dated, Reveals New Jobs, Locations, Characters, Collector's Edition And More - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 14, 2021 @ 8:41 p.m. PDT

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker features the climax of the Hydaelyn and Zodiark story, in which Warriors of Light will encounter an even greater calamity than ever before as they travel to the far reaches of Hydaelyn and even to the moon.

Eorzea, an awe-inspiring land of endless possibilities. Whether you choose to battle fierce creatures in the wilderness, fashion the ultimate blade in the forge, or swap tall tales in the local tavern, the history of Final Fantasy XIV will be shaped by your actions. Choose from an exotic variety of races, looks and classes to fashion your hero. Change classes simply by equipping a different weapon or tool and tackle an ever-changing assortment of level quests alone or with friends.

The age of adventure has begun.


Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker is coming to PC, PS5, PS4 and Mac on November 23, 2021.

In addition to bringing the long-running story arc that began with A Realm Reborn to its conclusion, Endwalker will mark a new beginning for the beloved MMO, setting the stage for new adventures that longtime fans and new players can enjoy together.

The full cinematic Endwalker trailer also debuted during the digital event, which includes a new theme song composed by Masayoshi Soken with vocals by Sam Carter from the chart-topping band Architects.

The second job that will be introduced with Endwalker is the ‘reaper’—a scythe-swinging melee DPS who calls upon an avatar from the Void to join them in close-quarter combat and can even serve as a host for their avatar.


Additionally, male Viera will be added as a new playable race, joining the existing female Viera.

A number of additional trailers were revealed during the Digital Fan Festival 2021:
The new expansion will bring an abundance of new features, including multiple new jobs, an increased level cap, vast new areas, updates to the battle system, a variety of new challenges to overcome, as well as crafter and gatherer content.

A comprehensive list of content announced for Endwalker, including information from the Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker announcement Showcase held in February, is available here.
