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.

Square Enix debuted a new trailer showcasing new and updated job actions, as well as fresh information for the highly anticipated fourth expansion pack, Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, scheduled for release on 23rd November, 2021.

During the latest Letter from the Producer LIVE broadcast, Final Fantasy XIV Online Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida detailed various adjustments planned for each job at the release of Endwalker, new information on general battle-related adjustments, as well as an introduction to the all-new sage and reaper jobs.

Further details revealed for Endwalker during the livestream include:

  • Job Adjustments – Building upon changes implemented in Shadowbringers, Endwalker will bring new gameplay experiences for Disciples of War and Magic jobs. Updates include significant changes to Summoner job mechanics, the addition of single target buffs for all healer jobs, timing-based effects added to some tank defensive cooldowns, and much more.
  • Duty Reward Adjustments – Trials on both Normal and Extreme difficulties, which provide weapons as a reward, will now drop a weapon coffer alongside one of the available weapon rewards, allowing players to more easily obtain weapons of their choosing.
  • System-related Updates – Various quality of life updates such as enhanced HUD customization, improved ground targeting functionality, and UI updates will be added.
  • Adjustments to HQ Items – To help reduce overall inventory bloat and preventing unintended procurement of HQ items, certain items such as gathered items, enemy drops, and token exchange materials will no longer be available as high-quality items—gatherer actions, quests, and achievements related to HQ items will undergo adjustments accordingly. Crafted items and equipment will remain available as both normal- and high-quality.
  • Post-Release Patch Update – Due to the urgent need to address server congestion, the Data Center Travel system is scheduled for implementation after Patch 6.0.

Players can also look forward to upcoming in-game content and new Endwalker information in the months leading up to launch on 23rd November, 2021:

  • Final Fantasy XIV x Dragon Quest X Collaboration Event – The wonderful world of Dragon Quest X returns to Eorzea from 19th October until 11th November with the “Breaking Brick Mountains” collaboration event.
